Holistic healthcare practices have been used for centuries in many Asian countries. These practices help practitioners through preventive and practical natural healing methods that are often overlooked in our modern times. But because of the rising costs of modern healthcare facilities and services, many patients have turned to natural healing and wellness.
The 2nd International Ayurveda, Yoga & Wellness Convention & Expo Philippines 2011 features "Wellness within Reach - Affordable Health for All". It is set this weekend, November 26 to 27 at the Alberione Auditorium, Daughters of St. Paul, 2650 F.B. Harrisson St. Pasay City.
Topics include Ayurveda for Filipinos, alternative medicine in the Philippines, and food management for health and wellness. For those who are under medication or treatment, Ayurveda's integration with modern medicine will also be discussed.
My personal experience with natural healing has started many years and strongly influenced by a family friend who is a healer. She makes use of herbs, plants and tree parts in healing procedures. Since natural healing takes consistency and maintenance, it may not be a replacement for critical health conditions. Regular cleansing is key and so is keeping a healthy and balance diet. Furthermore, these holistic methods promote collective healing and wellness by reaching out to other community-members and helping others to attain their optimum health.
Lecturers will also be available to answer queries, clarifications as well as provide free consultations to participants. For more information, you can check out Ayurveda Manila's website.
