Mr. Peter Bedard MA, C.Ht.
Health, Fitness, and Beauty
After a near-death experience, Peter Bedard was faced with the greatest challenge of all: Living a life in severe physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. The former dancer soon discovered that the anger and frustration he felt because of his injuries were not only keeping him in pain, but were waiting to teach him the greatest gifts of his life. Now, a celebrated author and healer, he helps thousands of people globally to live a life of full potential while integrating the lessons of pain into balanced living. Peter is the owner of ConvergenceHealingTeas.com and Peter's book, Convergence Healing: Healing Pain with Energetic Love, is in bookstores now! His newest book, "When Happiness is Work, A 30 Day Guide to Creating a Life of Joy and Healing Depression" is taking pre-orders NOW prior to publication!
In an effort to encourage people to choose natural/holistic healing methods before pharmaceutical drugs I’ve compiled the list below to give people ideas for choosing food as a medicine. Herbs are Mother Nature’s way of sharing healing with us. Often the very pharmaceutical drugs that are so readily prescribed have a natural source at the root of their effectiveness – Mother Nature’s solution as compared to a chemists’ solution . The options below are possible solutions for helping you to heal and feel better and are in no way meant as a prescription. Always follow your own intuitive sense to decide what is right for you, your body, and your health.
The following list of drugs and the number of prescriptions handing out every year was compiled by MedScape.com (article 820011#20). Millions of pills are handed out every year to help people feel better. In my experience, pharmaceutical drugs (and surgeries) should be a last resort especially when study after study is showing us the power of natural healing and the side effects of many drugs often cause the need to take another drug and create and even greater sense of dis-ease. Sometimes the effectiveness rate of an actual pharmaceutical drug is equal to or worse than a holistic solution. Take high blood pressure for example, studies have shown that meditation is actually more effective than any drug on the market in lowering an individual’s blood pressure.
When going a holistic/herbal route, it is important to consult a professional herbalist, Chinese Doctor, Naturopathic Doctor, and/or Ayurvedic Doctor to guide your use and uptake of the herbs. Proceed with confident caution.
Although I have personal experiences and countless stories about people healing themselves using natural remedies I must also encourage you to not stop taking your medication(s) without first discussing this with your doctor. Hopefully your doctor is open to natural healing remedies and he/she is willing to work with you in creating a balance of allopathic and holistic medicines to support your healing. If not and you do decide to use herbs be sure to consult a professional herbalist or Naturalpathic Doctor first to assist you in your healing. Herbs DO NOT replace your medications. If you are currently taking a medication DO NOT stop taking your medication. Do NOT alter your dosage without your doctor’s approval and supervision. My hope is that you turn to natural healing remedies before pharmaceutical drugs and that you take a preventative approach to healing BEFORE becoming dependent on pharmaceuticals
