Gum DiseaseWhat is Gum Disease?Gum disease is an infection of the tissues and bones that support and surround theteeth. Plaque contains food, bacteria and bacterial waste products thataccumulate on your teeth after eating. If it is left on your teeth, your gums becomeirritated.When plaque builds up and hardens into tartar (also known as calculus) the bonestructures around the teeth become affected. The early stage of gum disease isknown as gingivitis – this is when gums can become red and swollen and bleedeasily, often during tooth brushing.If gingivitis is left untreated, it can progress to peridontitis where the inner layerof the gum and bone recede from the teeth and form pockets.The spaces between the teeth and gums become infected, and bacterial toxinsbegin to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold the teethtogether.

Conventional western medicine, often called allopathic Moms Blogmedicine, is the system of medicine taught at most medical schools and mostpharmaceutical and synthetic medicines are manufactured and marketed Health or High Wateraccording to the principles of allopathic medicine. Allopathic medicine is alsosometimes called orthodox medicine. Pet Herbal Info BlogBecause most of us in the Western world have grown up in a society in which The Natural Beat Blogallopathic medicine is the prevailing norm, we forget that, only a few decades ago,homeopathic, herbal and other natural medicines were commonly available – and PetAlive Natural & Herbal Remediesfreely used even by conventional doctors. While there are often heated debates for Petsabout which system of medicine is ‘better’ than the other, many responsibledoctors (whether they are allopathic or not) recognize that both have a role to play Native Remedies - Natural & Herbalin the treatment program. RemediesNatural medicine has often been frowned on by conventional doctors, especially by Remedies4 - Free Natural Healththose who did not have sufficient knowledge of these medicines. However, it is Ebooksencouraging to note that some medical schools are now beginning to re-introduceit into their course work, thereby providing doctors with a wider range oftreatment options from which to choose. In many countries, especially in Europe,India and China, natural and homeopathic medicines are commonly prescribed byconventional doctors and represent a significant part of the total annual drug sales.Naturopathy is a branch of medicine (just as allopathy is a branch of medicine)which operates according to the underlying philosophy that the body has an innatecapacity to heal itself. While natural medicines are often called ‘alternative’ or‘complimentary’ medicines, they are, in fact, a unique and independent form ofmedicine in their own right, well able to treat a variety of conditions. Perhaps theterm ‘holistic’ medicine is more apt, given the broad range of treatment options
and approaches which are to be found within the practice of natural medicine,which encompasses many different disciplines, including herbalism, homeopathy,iridology, osteopathy, chiropractic, therapeutic massage techniques,aromatherapy, acupuncture and many, many more.Most naturopaths will use a variety of treatment modalities in order to treat theirpatients in a holistic way to support health, relieve symptoms and prevent futuredisease. In fact, even the World Health Organization defines health as being "...more than simply the absence of illness. It is the active state of physical, emotional,mental and social well-being." This is a wonderfully clear description of holistic ornatural medicine, which strives to support health (thereby relieving or preventingsymptoms), rather than simply eliminating disease.Although allopathic medicine certainly has a role to play and has made atremendous contribution to medical science during the past century, there is agrowing perception that it is not the only answer and that, in many cases, holisticmedicine can accomplish just as much, if not more – without the risk of sideeffects, addiction and sacrifice to health so commonly associated withpharmaceutical drugs. Contrary to common perception, and provided that they aremanufactured in the correct way, natural medicines can work quickly and safely topromote healing.In many cases, they can succeed where pharmaceutical drugs have failed. Despitefrequent reports that they are ‘unproven’ and ‘untested’, the opposite is true.Natural medicines have a long history of usage and there is a wealth of empiricalevidence to support their effectiveness and safety. In addition, active clinicalresearch is carried out by many academic hospitals and universities to support theextensive traditional and empirical evidence behind natural medicines.It is also important to know that, like any medicine, herbal and homeopathicmedicines must be manufactured in the correct way, following acceptableprocedures and manufacturing methods to ensure maximum effectiveness andsafety. Due to the recent rise in popularity of natural remedies, many companieshave sprung up to take advantage of the market. Unfortunately not all of them areequipped to manufacture to the correct standards, often resulting in a flood ofinferior (and sometimes even unsafe) remedies onto the market – and givingnatural remedies a bad name.Even some pharmaceutical companies have rushed to claim their market share byproducing so-called ‘standardized’ extracts of herbs and offering these as superiorto the tried and tested methods of naturopathic manufacturing. Nothing could befurther from the truth. While ‘standardized’ extracts may offer benefit of easyconsistency of dosage (and cheaper more efficient production lines), they havegrave disadvantages. These include an increase in side effects as the medicinesproduced in this manner lose the natural protective properties of the herbs. Insome cases, these side effects have proved fatal – as was seen in the liver toxicityassociated with standardized extracts of kava kava, a herb previously safely usedfor generations without any known side effects.Most naturopaths recommend what is called the Full Spectrum Method ofextraction – which retains the benefits of ALL the active ingredients within theherb as opposed to isolating only one – thereby providing a more completetreatment as well as superior protection against side effects.

Most schools will offer an exam that tests the students knowledge of the material taught in the respective course. Upon successful completion of this exam, a Certificate or Diploma will be issued by the school attesting that the student has successfully met the requirements as specified by that school. The only governmental recognition of Aromatherapy in North America is the occupational title designation granted to the BCAOA under the Societies Act of British Columbia. What is a Certified Aromatherapist or Reflexologist? Most prospective students want to know whether taking our courses will lead to their becoming Certified in that healing modality, thereby leading to the title of Certified Aromatherapist, Certified Reflexologist or Certified Color/Crystal Therapist. The answer to this really depends on what you mean by Certified." We believe it can be misleading to purport that completing a course in a healing modality such as reflexology, aromatherapy or color/crystal therapy will lead to a designation of Certified Therapist. These are not officialtitle designations nor are they ones which are recognized by any countrys governmental body. All that these titles mean isthat this is what an Individual Instructor, School or Institution decided to put on the Diploma it awards those who successfullycomplete their course.What is an accredited course in Aromatherapy or Reflexology?The answer to this will depend on who you are asking. At the present time, British Columbia is the only government torecognize Aromatherapy as a distinct profession and has granted Occupational Title Protection to the members of the BCAOA(British Columbia Alliance of Aromatherapy) with the exclusive right for its members to call themselves RegisteredAromatherapists (R.A.).At this time, neither Reflexology nor Color/Crystal Therapy have such occupational designations in any country although oneprominent Reflexology school in Colorado, The Modern Institute of Reflexology, has gained occupational designation for theirinstitution in that state. MIR has been designated by the Colorado State Division of Private Occupational Schools - Dept. ofHigher Education as an approved school. Our Reflexologist who developed the reflexology modules for our courses was trainedat MIR as a Certified Reflexologist, a Master Reflexologist and a Dr. of Reflexology.In the United States, the NAHA (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy) has put into place their Approved Standardsfor Aromatherapy Training. The Alternative Healing Academys Advanced Aromatherapy course meets and exceeds thesestandards and we are in the application process of becoming an approved program through the NAHA.In Canada, there are a number of different Associations including the BCAPA (British Columbia Association of PracticingAromatherapists and the CFA (Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists). Time will tell if one authoritative body or associationbecomes the standard by which to judge and govern the educational offerings of these alternative healing modalities.It has to be noted that NO form of aromatherapy "certification" is currently recognized in the USA by anyone other thanthose in the trade, nor is aromatherapy (or essential oils in the aromatherapy trade) regulated by any governmentalbody.Some information about the courses we offer:1) You can receive the course in one of two ways: A cd with themodules and tests in PDF format can be shipped to you; or, Themodules can be emailed to you three at a time.

Itreally goes into detail which is very informative."~Debbie F. - Basic Reflexology"Seven years ago I started to see a reflexologist for migraines and sinus problems. I was amazed that I finally found reliefwithout medication. I decided this year to search out a course in reflexology so I could help family and friends and showthem the benefits of reflexology. I researched various courses on the internet and decided to go with the basic coursethrough the Alternative Healing Academy. I was impressed with course material and the ease of receiving the coursematerial."I was given an choice of having a CD sent to me or to receiving and sending back the assignments through email. I chooseemail. I received 3 lessons at a time that I could read and study on my own time frame and return the lessons when I wasdone. Everything was sent in a very timely manner and communication was open and quick. If I needed help, I knew it wasonly a click away and the response time was very quick. The techniques used also came in a video mode in the email that Icould replay as much as I needed to."I felt I learned a lot and am able to help myself and others. Being able to log 20 hours of treatment time and writing thecase histories for the final exam was extremely rewarding and helpful. I would recommend this course to others interestedin reflexology because the course material was very informative and complete and written in easy to understand language."~Jean Russell - Basic Reflexology Course"Im so excited about (the Advanced Aromatherapy course) and Im particularly excited about the possibility of makingcustom blends for people! I hadnt anticipated having that opportunity when I took the course so Im excited to haveeverything done! Im very excited to have finished.
