Better than Drugs: Natural Tools for Health & Healing
There's no money in wellness, but there's plenty of money in sickness.

Your body has an innate ability to heal itself. There may be some evidence-based natural healing alternatives you can implement to help the healing process.

Steroids can help in the short term for Chrohn's disease. Long-term steroid use can be hard on the body. But, dietary changes can alleviate Chrohn's disease symptoms.

Anxiety medications are rampant. You may experience greater relief from hypnosis, yoga or deep breathing exercises.

If you're having trouble with insomnia, consider reflexology. Reflexology involves working with pressure points on the feet. A quick internet search will provide you with a map of these pressure points. This may help you sleep better than the help you'd get from a bottle of pills.

Take care of yourself. If your doctor prescribes something for your condition and you're not sure it's the best option, get a second opinion. Speak with a natural doctor if you don't feel right about taking a drug or combination of drugs.

Listen in as Dr. Holly Lucille shares how natural healing can help you.
