Try Some Native American Wisdom
Healing methods used by Native American nations have a heritage stretching back thousands of years. Native American healing is based around spirituality, and traditionally holds that physical illnesses and ailments arise when your spirit is out of balance, perhaps as a result of negative thoughts or an unhealthy or immoral lifestyle. A variety of methods are used to bring the spirit back into balance (both internally and in connection with the natural world) and to bring about physical healing, including herbal remedies, purifying and cleansing ceremonies and other shamanic rituals. Although many of these practices have not been subjected to scientific study, the American Cancer Society concedes that the communal and spiritual support provided by this type of healing could have helpful effects. Prayers, introspection, and meditation can be calming and can help to reduce stress of cancer patients.
