How alternative health care works
Illness or disease can be like an iceberg—only 10% of it is visible or detectable by "traditional" testing or observation methods. At Heartland Healing, we strive to find the underlying cause of illness ("dis-ease") and eliminate the cause, not just the symptoms.
Simply put, when the real cause is discovered and corrected, the problem is resolved and doesn't resurface as some other ailment further down the road. These causes can be because of:
- A specific toxin (heavy metals, chemicals, parasites, bacteria, fungus, virus, etc.)
- Problems with blood sugar regulation
- Adrenal gland, digestive, or fatty acid metabolism dysfunction
- Brain dysfunction or degeneration
- Food, chemical, and/or environmental sensitivities
- Alterations with liver detoxification pathways
- Even your belief systems
At Heartland Healing Alternatives, we work with you to determine and eliminate the cause(s) of the problem so your health can be restored. The rest is up to you! It has been proven over the centuries that the body has amazing capacity for tolerance, compensation, and healing if you just give it what it needs—pure water, fresh air, sunlight, proper nutrients, whole natural foods, exercise, and rest.
I don't feel sick, why should I continue reading?
We have all been trained over many years that the absence of symptoms means the absence of illness. However, in the six phases of disease progression, symptoms are among the last to appear. There are signs of illness, but we tend not to pay attention to them. A runny nose, watery eyes, rashes, inflammations, cysts, moles, cellulite—these are all early warning signs of toxins in the body that are trying to work their way out.
When these toxins are suppressed through use of medication, improper diet or lifestyle, and lack of exercise and/or rest, the toxins are pushed deeper into the body, resulting in "dis-ease." Conversely, in the regression of disease, symptoms are the first phase to disappear. Therefore, symptoms are poor standards by which to judge your state of optimum health.
How does Heartland Healing Alternatives help you find your health balance?
I am Jody Nyquist, the president and owner of Heartland Healing Alternatives. I am a Naturopath. This means I use methods of nature, or natural methods, to help restore health to the body.
My practice is centered on these principles of naturopathy:
- Do No Harm
- Use the Healing Power of Nature
- Find the Cause
- Honor the Whole Person
- Practice Preventative Care
- Empower the Client
I use several different methods to determine your state of health:
- Energetic assessments through an interview process
- NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique)
- Brain Health Assessment
I use additional proven natural modalities (methods) with my clients, depending on what their specific needs are. These modalities include:first visit, what services I might recommend, how others have been helped by Heartland Healing Alternatives, and how to contact me.
