Natural Medicine Principles:
Dis-ease is caused by an imbalance in the functioning of the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level of an individual. The imbalance produces symptoms, which are warning signs, expressions of the imbalance, telling us that we need to look at what we are doing to our body. We have a choice: we can suppress the symptoms, or we can treat the cause at the level in which it exists.
Natural medicine is the art and science of health care based on principles derived from centuries of research and observation into the process of disease and healing. Some of the principles which guide the Doctors at this clinic include:
- Tolle causam: (Find the Cause) Doctors at this clinic aim to remove the root cause of a patient’s condition instead of just treating symptoms. For example: if you find yourself using any medication for constipation, headaches, sleeping problems, allergies, frequent colds, rheumatic pains, skin disorders, etc. then ask yourself if your treatment plan is taking you a step closer to curing the disorder (removing the cause), or is it just alleviating the symptoms?
- Vis Medicatrix Naturae: (The Healing Power of Nature) When the obstacles to cure are removed and the bodily functions supported, the body has the ability to move towards a restorative state of health. Many symptoms are actually the body’s attempt to aid in the restoration process.
- Primum non nocere: ( Above All, Do No Harm) Therapies at this clinic are safe, non-toxic and when used properly, have no side effects.
- Wholism: Doctors at this clinic recognize that dis-ease is multifactorial. Heredity, diet, environment, lifestyle, emotions, etc. all affect the health of an individual. All aspects of the individual’s health are examined. Recent research in the area of psychoneuroimmunology is proving the age old concept that mental and emotional attitudes can influence our physical body.
- Prevention: Health is a prized possession. Why do we wait for symptoms of disease to appear before we start to value our health? Health is freedom from limitations. Doctors at this clinic aim to keep patients free from disease on all levels.
- Education: The word “doctor” means “to teach”. Doctors at this clinic aim to educate their patients so that they have the tools to make intelligent choices about factors that affect their health. Doctors at this clinic can act as teachers, guides, resource individuals, etc. Patients are encouraged to accept responsibility for their health, ask questions and be active participants in their healing process.
Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine receive their N.D. degree (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine) after completing a minimum study of seven years at post-secondary institutions (minimum of three years of university and four years at a government recognized Naturopathic medical college). The provincial regulatory board exams must be passed before obtaining a Naturopathic license in Ontario.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine recieve their D.Ac. degree (Doctor of Acupuncture) after completing a two year program of study at a post-secondary institution of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Prerequisites for entry into the program of Traditional Chinese Medicine are basic premed courses such as Anatomy, Physiology, Histology, Embryology, etc. Currently Doctors of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are not licensed in the Province of Ontario, however, they are regulated by the Ontario Association of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Auricular Medicine is an energetic reflex technique in which the pulse and filters are used to detect points on the ear. The points that show up on the ear can indicate the location of specific imbalances within the body. Through the use of filters we are able to identify specific dysfunctions within the body.
Auricular Medicine is a specialized field of Energetic Medicine. Training consists of a one year program with the prerequisite that a recognized Medical program has already been completed. The practitioners of Auricular Medicine are recognized by the International Association of Auricular and Bioenergetic Medicine. The Doctors in this clinic use Auricular Medicine as their key diagnostic tool and work with their clients to stimulate self-healing (vis medicatrix naturae) through assessment of the disease state, prevention of disease, evaluation of a client’s state of health, and treatment and care of client’s using means and substances that are in harmony with the client’s own self healing processes.
Auricular Medicine in conjunction with conventional medical tests can find and treat the cause of disease. Many conditions, acute and chronic, can be treated by Auricular Medicine.
Medical Intuition is the ability to read the energy of the body in order to bring awareness to what the body is expressing through its subtle energy. The information reflects the physical, mental and emotional/spiritual components of imbalance as the body is expressing them through its symptoms. To have an energetic profile done of the body can give insight into the essence of the person’s imbalances, and is very useful in integrating all aspects of the individual into a treatment program. A diagnosed condition can be limited in its ability to portray the individual’s specific development and response to their challenges, not only on the physical level, but also on the mental and emotional/spiritual levels as well. To break free of the assumptions we currently hold about our discomfort, and build relationship to the specific programs, impressions, and encapsulated beliefs that our body is holding onto from our past, is to enter in awareness the potential of the Self to heal.
Medical Intuition takes the symptoms out of the context of a named disease and into a description of what the body is expressing at the source of the imbalance.
A Medical Intuitive Scan can be done by distance, a written report is sent, and a follow-up phone consultation is arranged to discuss the scan. The Scan records the information held in the body, at a subconscious level, therefore during the phone consult the information presented will be discussed in relation to what the individual is currently experiencing on a conscious level. Medical Intuition can give insight into the emotional and energetic components of the disease state that are not detected using standard diagnostic equipment.
The Process of Inner Alchemy
This is a therapy developed by Alison Feather Adams that facilitates the client to bring awareness to the subtle energy within their physical body. The client learns to 'feel' what the body is expressing and the therapy releases the negative emotional charges held in the body so the held area of trauma, or place of resistance may be understood and liberated to be in line with what they have consciously chosen from a state of awareness. Our bodies have an intelligence that goes beyond what most of us have learned to acknowledge.
This therapy helps you reconnect with your inner potential by taking you past your discomfort into the wisdom of subtle energy where your intuition can guide you to see things the way they really are, in truth. Truth is the foundation for healing and reinitiating your physical body as well as the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies to work together to bring you back to the state of ease and health again. You come to experience the essence of who you are, and release the outdated programming that the body is compensating for, and outgrown impressions about yourself that has been influencing you unknowingly.
The process of Inner Alchemy is about transformation, and requires a desire to unveil the truth within, so that one is realigned with Source for healing.
We go beyond the illusion of fear, betrayal, and hurt, to realign with an inner strength that transforms & unites rather than further separates us from one another and our True Self.
This process can be done in person as well as by telephone.
Sound and Colour Therapy at the Renascent Integral health Centre
What Is It and How Does it Work?
For centuries both sound and colour have been used as effective therapies in the healing arts. Both of these modalities are energetic therapies, meaning that they utilize frequencies of sound and colour to affect and re-balance the client’s energetic body.
In a world that continues to require scientific and physical evidence as proof of the efficacy of healing modalities, it can be difficult for the average person to believe that either sound or colour could possibly affect an individual’s ability to heal. The Doctors at the Renascent Integral Health Clinic first became acquainted with the healing potential of Sound & Colour Therapy when they met with a group of French physicians who were pioneering a Sound & Colour Therapy system which utilized the concept of individualized sound and colour treatment the first of it’s kind. Over the years this form of therapy has proven itself again and again as an effective tool in addressing and shifting a client’s energetic blocks to physical and emotional healing.
In order to understand how this therapy works, one must first have a basic understanding of how energetic medicine works. All energetic therapies are rooted in the knowledge that we all have an energetic body or aura. This energetic body can be likened to a hologram of ourselves that overlays our physical body and extends out into a field around us. The theory of energetic medicine is based on Einstein’s model, energy becomes matter, as such, any physical disturbances or ailments we may be experiencing, first appear in our energetic field, indeed all of our imbalances physical or emotional are present in our energetic field. Our energetic fields may sometimes be seen (by aura readers), photographed (by Kirlian photography), felt or read (by intuitives), and even altered (with frequencies). It is the ability to alter our energetic bodies with frequencies upon which the Sound & Colour Therapy offered at our clinic is based. If we can address the client’s imbalances on the energetic level, then we can impact and accelerate the client’s ability to heal themselves. Once the blockages to healing are released and removed the client’s self healing and self regulating abilities can begin to return them to a state of health and wholeness.
The Doctors at the Renascent Integral Health Center have found this form of Sound and Colour Therapy to be very effective when used in conjunction with the other healing modalities offered at the clinic. When Sound & Colour Therapy is used in conjunction with other therapies it accelerates healing on all levels. We are also discovering that Sound & Colour Therapy is effective as a stand alone therapy. In cases where physical interventions are not currently possible (the client is not able to take remedies due to special circumstances etc), Sound & Colour Therapy offers an alternative that will help a client begin to shift their energetic field, as the client’s energetic field begins to shift they also begin to shift on the physical level creating the opportunity for healing to begin. Those who are seeking personal transformation also benefit from Sound and Colour Therapy, as it offers a vehicle to help us deconstruct limiting beliefs about ourselves and begin to connect with our infinite potential.
The Process of Sound and Colour Therapy at Renascent Integral Health Centre:
Sound Therapy begins with a listening test. The client listens for different sound frequencies through a set of headphones, first through the left and then the right ear. When the listening test has been completed the sound therapist develops an individual sound treatment by using a piece of classical music and the Audio Biocolor equipment. The harmonics and frequencies present in the music combined with the client’s individual listening test create a sound treatment that is unique and powerful. The client listens to their treatment with stereo headphones in office for 45 minutes. As the client is listening to their treatment, it is also being recorded so that the client is able to take their treatment home on an audio CD.
The colour portion of the Sound and Colour Therapy session begins with a colour test. The sound and colour therapist leads the client through a process of choosing colours that appeal to them intuitively. Once the test has been completed the Audio Biocolor equipment writes a unique colour treatment for the client using the information gathered during the colour test.
Colour Therapy is administered to the client at the same time as sound therapy. The client’s Colour treatment is presented on a large panel or smaller chromodome, the client may have their eyes open or closed, as colour therapy is a vibrational treatment. This form of colour treatment is not appropriate for people who have a history of, or are prone to seizures.
Each sound and colour assessment (testing and treatment) provides a valid treatment for approximately 6 weeks, before re-assessment is required. This is a general guideline which is dependant on each client’s unique circumstance. Ongoing treatment (after the initial test and treatment appointment) may be done by the client, at home with their treatment CD. Alternatively, clients may choose to return to the office for a short follow up appointment where they will receive their sound and colour treatment in office.
