HEALING FROM HEAVEN & EARTH
ABOUT HALO & EDEN
Halo & Eden Holistic Remedies is founded by Lindsay Fieldhouse BSc. (Hons), MBAcC, an Acupuncturist with a passion for Nutritional Therapy, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Crystal Healing, and all things holistic. Before becoming an acupuncturist, Lindsay spent over 15 years working within retail head offices, so this seemed like a perfect marriage of her past and present lives.
After suffering with post-natal anxiety and endometriosis, she found herself exploring other holistic therapies: "Acupuncture is my passion and healing modality but when you have a small baby it is not always practical to have needles around, this is when other therapies which I had previously dismissed, where able to provide me with healing support." She saw how small changes could have a big influence on her health but finding these required a lot of research on her part. This website was established to make it easier for others & to bring you everyday holistic solutions, from heaven & earth, nature & science.
ABOUT HOLISTIC MEDICINE
Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person: body, mind, spirit, and emotions, in order to achieve optimal health and wellbeing. It can also be considered a Functional Medicine in that it attempts to address the root cause of disease and not just the presenting symptoms.
Often, when people turn to holistic medicine, they have run out of options with Western medicine and are in desperate need for relief. This creates a drive to find a miracle cure which can be not only unrealistic but misleading for the patient. These remedies work with your own healing powers which is why results may vary so greatly and why research struggles to pin down their efficacy. I prefer to think of them as influencers than cures, and often they work synergistically together for better results. These remedies are neither a medicine nor a cure for any illness and by no means do we make any medical claims unless supported by scientific research, instead they are intended to help you to maintain your health and a healthy lifestyle.
Some of the items here can be a bit of fun, some may assist with smaller changes, others may be more profound, but each person is unique and there is no foolproof way of knowing which will be the most effective, all we know is our intentions and what resonates with us.
Holistic medicine is often perceived as "hippy" or "old wives tales" but once you understand some of the concepts behind the therapies, they become a lot less abstract. The knowledge that everything is comprised of trillions of atoms, all of which are vibrating at a variety of frequencies, is the starting point for understanding where the term Energy Medicine comes from. Energy comes in various forms such as kinetic, thermal, electrical and biochemical, to name a few. My personal experience is that all these therapies work on an energetic level, something that western medicine has yet to harness. Herein lies its success but often its mis-understanding.
There is a lack of research to support some of these theories but there is also a lack of funding for such research. Big pharmaceutical companies pay for a lot of research so it is not surprising that they don't want to fund anything that would decrease their sales. As such, our industry relies on anecdotal success stories, many recorded over thousands of years as opposed to Modern medicine which has only existed for the past 100 years. During this time it has made some
phenomenal strides, especially in the area of diagnosis and understanding but there should be no reason why Alternative or Complementary medicine cannot work seamlessly along side this.
This site is intended to make holistic medicine accessible and relevant to everyone.
