More and more, the mainstream western medical establishment is adding alternative therapies to patients’ overall treatment plans. These alternative therapies usually lead with guided imagery for health. Often patients receiving excellent traditional medical care still fail to improve. Linda Silwedel, a holistic resource nurse tells the Ashville Mountain Xpress, “when the body is focused on stress, it doesn’t heal itself as effectively.” Guided imagery allows the patient’s body to relax, making him or her more active in the healing process.
Shirley Ballentyne, another holistic resource nurse says her patients have had an “incredible response” to the guided imagery sessions she provides. Through guided imagery for health, the medical treatments become something the in which the patient is participating, rather than something that is being done to him or her.
Guided imagery helps soothe patients’ minds and makes their bodies more receptive to the good that their medicines are doing. Tension and stress can psychosomatically interfere with the efficacy of some treatments and stressed out patients are more prone to negative side effects.
The Healing Waterfall offers several audio programs focusing on guided imagery for health as well as a great selection of programs for stress relief and improved immunity. Learn more here and start improving your health today!
