For thousands of years, people have been treating their ailments with nothing but the essential elements of the earth – things other than what can be cooked up in a lab. And, for the most part, they’ve found enormous success. It makes sense, doesn’t it? The safest, most effective cures for your sickness and pain and can be found all around you, in their purest form.

Here are a few highly-revered wellness therapies we have to let you in on:

1. Homeopathy

This 200-year-old therapy attempts to cure “like with like,” claiming that water has a memory. When the active ingredient is diluted in water, the ingredient is retained, and actually becomes more potent. Homeopathy is painless, incredibly safe, and deals in a substance that’s vital for our livelihood – water.

2. Reiki

A product of the far east, Reiki, meaning “universal life energy,” is a process by which a therapist channels energy to a person using touch – which encourages healing. It is said that when one’s energy flow is low, they’re more likely to feel sick or be depressed; and when one’s energy flow is high, they’re more likely to be happy and healthy.
Reiki is also incredibly safe, and although a small number of people might feel some psychological unease from being touched, the therapy is physically painless.
3. Herbal medicine
If it comes from the ground, it’s likely that it’ll fight what’s ailing you – according to herbal medicine, that is. Seeds, roots, berries, bark, leaves, and flowers are all a part of the herbal medicine regiment.
Although it’s important to note that not all herbs have benefits – some can actually be deadly – many do have a positive important on one’s wellness. Ginko has been shown to increase cognitive function, while saw palmetto has been used to treat an enlarged prostate.
4. Acupuncture
Acupuncture may not seem like everyone’s cup of tea, but for thousands of years, the therapy has been sworn by. This ancient practice involves stimulating various parts of the skin with needles to correct imbalances in “flow” throughout the body.
Acupuncture has been shown to be effective to reduce post-chemotherapy vomiting, as well as post operative dental pain.
5. Meditation
Meditation comes in many forms, but most of its forms have been supported by alternative medicine and orthodox science communities, alike. Most meditation involves sitting comfortably with ones eyes closed, observing the breathe and the different sensations of experience.
The long-term benefits of meditation include increased memory function and concentration, as well as a greater sense of well-being.
