Sometimes It Is The Simplest Of Things That Bring Us The Greatest Healing- Hand Stands, Self Care, Being Present And Embracing The Flow!

in Natural Medicine7 days ago

There is so much involved in maintaining our health and well being. But the basis if it all, stems from our relationship to ourselves. You can try all the remedies and treatments on offer, but if you are not connected and communicating with your whole self, then they will not work.

Natural medicine is holistic, it heals at the deepest level and exposes us for who we are. Embracing natural medicine is a life long journey, one that is full of challenges, lessons and so much wisdom. It really is, so empowering!

This week I wish to share some posts that really connected with that wisdom and often in some of the simplest ways. Doing things that we take for granted, yet present great healing, whilst bringing us back to the power of observation!


It does us well to connect with our inner child, to take the time to be playful and have fun. When I came across @constgaladriel's post it brought me back to my childhood and my love for doing handstands. Little did I know how beneficial they were. (or perhaps I instinctively did and just forgot)

There are two essential parts to hand standing; physical strength and balance. I understand that your mind and body must find the perfect balance by being inverted (body). By progressively developing balance, endurance, strength and self-control of your muscles.


Healing is all about embracing who we are, the child we were and the person we have become. @vincentnijman has been sharing the journey of Hypersensitivosaurus, as he learns to embrace who he is. Each week he continues to share some really valuable lessons. This week, he talked about the importance of self-care, of putting yourself first, because

The world deserved the best version of him.

This is something we can benefit from,(something I personally needed to hear this week), remembering to be gentle with ourselves and honouring ourselves by putting our needs first when it comes to our healing journey.

This week the simple wisdom's just kept coming, practices that we can all partake in, that require nothing but our time and energy. @iliyan90, is someone who has written a lot about his yoga practice, but it was one particular post that really stood out to me, where he expressed the power of silence and living in the moment. By switching off and tuning into nature!

Listening to the sounds of frogs, crickets, birds and my favorite is to listen to the water 🌊 the sounds are just blissful.

Something so simple, but so powerful, such is the way with natural medicine!

This week I wanted to highlight some of the ways in which we can work on ourselves, practices that help us move forward and deepen our understanding. @whatamidoing writes such intimate posts, posts where he shares his life lessons with us all, reminding us to engage with the life we have. To embrace our flow

The more we step into that role as a full time, reliable collaborator with life, the more we feel how each struggle serves us. It’s not always easy and everyone’s road is different.

From the many lessons we learn from being by ourselves, there are just as many to be learnt when we share our lives with others. I have really been enjoying @nateonsteemit's post's about the men's group he is a part of. As we navigate our way in life, especially now as we face many uncertainties, it is so important to have community around you!

This Thursday I was accompanied to the creek by a friend from the men's group community. He too has an affinity for the outdoors in a spiritual sense, and we made a good time of it, exploring the creek and coming up with a plan for building a semi-permanent natural structure out there to practice some bushcraft.


If you wish to receive some guidance each day, make sure to check out @drrune's daily runes. I do not always remember to check them, but when I do, the message always resonates with me. This week it was - You cannot escape what you feel, open yourself!

Actually it is always the simplest things.

And sometimes caring for others is bigger benefit to our health than simply caring for ourselves.

I have seen people growing plants and healing themselves at the same time.

Let alone me having a service dog and him helping me heal.

a lot of times forgetting about yourself to care for something else brings you more love.

Beautiful - thankyou! I feel that way too. This community always makes my heart go boom!

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

Aww, thanks @trucklife-family! I'll have to do a post on the man scouts soon. We're up and coming, but coming up strong.

Love it, I look forward to it, this is what is going to help us get through these times, coming together and creating positive change xx

Human welfare is important, but it is more important that this welfare be between all of us. The care of our acquaintances, friends, family and what surrounds us. Every part of your world counts, because if they are healthy, you will be healthy too. One of the things that have caught my attention the most are the Runes of the day, from the friend @drrune. It strikes me how he shares these things for the benefit of all, so that we all have something to guide us from and that is wonderful.

Yes community is so important, connecting with and supporting others benefits us as much as it does them. Thank you for your beautiful words of wisdom @pavanjr xxx

As always, thank you for the mention! It's heartening to see so many people focused on personal progress and mindful growth. This is what I find most thrilling about being a member of this community! Blessings!

Blessings to you too my friend xxx

I always believe that the main basis for healing for a disease is ourselves, full belief that we can recover from both our physical and psychological illness. The herbal method is a medium by which it is provided with multiple functions to aid in our healing process. Very proud of the @naturalmedicine community, meet and know, learn many herbal treatment methods from all over the world.

What a nice collection @trucklife-family, don't know if I'm ready to handstand just yet, definitely a little more comfortable wielding @nateonsteemit's hand-axe.

Maybe I need to limber up a little more. @constgaladriel makes it look so easy.
