Animal and Pet Alternative Healings

Pet and animal alternative holistic healing is done on many scales, as there are multiple forms that can be used for your beloved counter-parts.
The five most common holistic healings for animals cover pretty much all basis for the animals holistic health:
1. Energy Healing2. Chakra Work3. Crystal Healing4. Flower Essences5. Massage
Energy healing can cover a lot of topics and areas, as there are multiple forms out in today’s society to work with energy. The best ones to use for animal work are the original form of Reiki, Usui Reiki, or any other kind of animal healing energy form.
Chakra work varies a bit from that of humans, but the issues that correspond to each chakra are the same. To work with animal chakras, please make sure you know where they are located, as again these lie differently within the animals energy field as well as how to run the energy flow through them.
Crystal healing is a wonderful asset for animals as well. Animals respond much more quickly to crystal energies with sessions, so please make sure you have an open mind and cleansed your own energy fields before starting a crystal session on a pet or animal. Crystals can transfer your own energy to the animal, so you do not want to transfer any negative or stagnent energy to them.
Flower essences are wonderful to use on humans and animals alike, as they respond rather quickly and effortlessly with them. You can also use etheric flower remedies once you have been attuned to the appropriate energy forms, as these are much easier to use and you can make them yourself.
Pet and animal massages are also a wonderful way to relax and heal your loved one with a physical touch. Please make sure you do know where to start, proceed and finish before starting a task like this, especially on a larger or more aggressive animal.…

5 Quick Tips to Losing Pounds and Loving Life Through Raw and Natural Foods

Throughout life we come across many diets and healthy food eating habits that make you shed a few pounds. The unfortunate fact is that all of these diets depends on you staying on the diets your whole life which leads to malnutrition. I am mainly referring to various detox and exercise diets. In this article, I will give you a few tips on how to stay healthy, while improving your life longevity as well as making you feel better throughout your day. The importance to living a healthy and fulfilled life is achieved by learning the tricks of the trade about raw and natural foods.
Tip #1: Building your list of items
This diet consists of creating a healthy eating lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle consists of eating up to 80% healthy food, while leaving the 20% freedom of eating whatever you choose (i.e. eating a piece of chocolate cake). The 80% healthy food consists of a combination of superfoods, fruits, vegatables, algeas, and herbs. One more crucial item that n bring all of these foods together is buying a great juicer. **
Tip #2: Buying a Juicer
There are 3 types of juicers; Centrifugal, Cold-Press, and Manual.
Cold-Press juicers are the top of the line juicers when it comes to providing the most effective nutrition and juice yields per vegetable/fruit. The downside to Cold-Press juicers are that they run about $400+
Centrifugal juicers are less expensive than Cold-Press, but destroy many of the nutrients in the vegetables and fruit because of the excess heat and pressure. A good centrifugal juicer is around $100+
If all else fails, you can get a Manual juicer. These juicers take a ton of work to use and are not worth the trouble. They are less than $100, but take quite a while and physical labor to just get one glass of juice. On the upside, they do preserve the nutrients just as the cold-press juicers do.
Tip #3: Always shop organic
Many of the mainstream supermarkets claim to be organic, but I don’t trust any of these companies. Shop at your local farmers market, natural foods store, or organic food markets. If all else fails, before you go shopping at a mainstream market, ask the store owner where they get their food and if they know what pesticides go into their food. If they say they have no clue, its not worth it to you to risk your health with the “organic” food that they claim they carry. **
Tip #4: Love to cook organic not only with your family, but your friends too!
It may seem like a challenge to cook all these fruits and vegetables you have laying around the house. There are numerous ways to learn recipes and strategies to improve your cooking style with these natural and raw ingredients. **
Tip #5: Enjoy life
If you follow these simple tips, I guarantee that you will not only enjoy life more, but you will be filled with more energy, as well as lose some pounds of toxins along the way.…
