The Resident – TV Show

Why on Earth would an organization that is supporting non traditional means of healing mention a TV show, like The Resident, in which the main theme is a traditional western medical facility that promotes its own means? Well, frankly, the Resident is a great show. It has drama. It is inspiring, having a doctor that believes that all people can be saved and who will never give up on a patient. It has politics that need to be dealt with and compelling story lines. This page is not to knock traditional western medicine and the role that it plays and can play in the lives of this country’s citizens, but to support and praise the role that traditional western medicine can and does play in the lives of the people. Frankly, the United States’ trauma units are the best in the world. If someone has a heart attack, or a woman has a cyst burst and needs immediate care, or like myself, a person falls down and jams their hand onto the top of a wrought iron fence and the metal goes almost all the way through the hand; U.S. trauma care and emergency rooms are second to none. A person has a million percent more chance of survival and recovery after a trauma like these as well as in a myriad of other instances than they did just 60 years ago.

Clear Choices Healing Centers are for the person who realizes that traditional western medicine is no longer helping that person to recover nor heal from whatever day to day ailment that a person has. Also, there are not a lot of people out there who currently think about means outside of western medicine. This is what we have all been taught since we were little via the media, commercials, movies, and pharmaceutical companies.

Have you ever considered that your very own thought patterns and behavior patterns could have an effect on your physical health? If you are one of the millions of obese people in this country who currently take more than 6 pills every day to cope with the plethora of maladies that an obese person faces, have you considered that your eating, or your other maladies are just symptoms of something deeper?

If you have adult on-set diabetes and don’t like the effects that medicine has on you, your memory is affected, you feel dizzy, or have any other number of symptoms of adult on-set diabetes, what are your other choices? Do you know that there are thousands of people who have rid themselves of adult on-set diabetes through the twelve step program of Overeaters Anonymous? This is a twelve step program that helps compulsive overeaters, anorexics, bulimics, compulsive exercisers, and sugar addicts recover from their respective diseases.

Yes, eating disorders are dis-eases. They are not a result of lack of will-power. They are not a result of a lack of discipline. They are not the result of a lack of control. They are a disease just like alcoholism or drug addiction. Welcome to a new point of view.

People who have actually done their work on themselves, and followed the program have recovered, and have been given new tools in their tool-box-for-life to deal with their eating, lack of eating, vomiting, or other food related dis-ease. That is the key term “dis-ease”. The person is not at ease, and this shows up in their physical body to try to get the person to become aware that there are more choices than just pills and getting motivated to go to the gym.

Personally, I am obese. I have lost more than 30 pounds multiple times in my life, and after the age of 29, each of those times was because I was doing the work on myself. When I found out something that I hadn’t dealt with from my past, or something else I wasn’t paying attention to in my thought patterns or behavior patterns, the weight came off easily. That desire to eat late at night disappeared. That inability to control myself at the dinner table or with snacks disappeared, and the weight literally fell off of my body very quickly. I didn’t need to “get motivated’. I needed to do the work on myself.

These are just some of the things that Clear Choices Healing Centers offer people. Most importantly, Clear Choices Healing Centers offer a new point of view on your health and on your healing. In the meantime, enjoy shows like The Resident. They are compelling and frankly, awesome!

What is a Modality

What is a Modality?

When we are not feeling our best, our first thought is usually to call for an appointment with our medical doctor. Conventional Medicine is a term that encompasses the most commonly accepted practice of medicine, including your primary care physician and specialists that you might be referred to by your primary care physician, and any tests your medical team may deem necessary to run in order to aid your doctor or doctors in determining the cause of your ailments.

Alternative medicine is a term that covers a wide variety of options outside of conventional medicine to help people move towards better health. Alternative medicine tends to depend less on pharmaceuticals and surgeries, and more upon a recognition of the body’s natural ability to heal itself, often with a change in diet or with the removal of a blockage within the energy field of the body. This energy shift can be done in a variety of ways. One of those ways is the adjustments to the alignment of bones such as what is done by a chiropractor. Another way is by clearing energy flow within the meridian system or the chakras. Yet another way is clearing energy in the auric field around the body such as Eden Energy Medicine.

If you’re familiar at all with Alternative Medicine, you’ve probably heard the term, “modality”. What is a modality? What exactly does the term “modality” mean?

The Dictionary defines Modality this way:

“A particular mode in which something exists or is experienced or expressed.”

When we refer to a modality in the alternative healing community, we are referring to one of the different types of practices or offerings within the alternative healing community. For example, if you’re exploring energy healing, you’re going to have an opportunity to get information on a wide variety of ways energy healing can be administered. Some of the “modalities” available within the field of energy healing are Reiki, chakra clearing, and Access Consciousness. Within these and other modalities can be found a variety of means by which energy work can be performed. Some practitioners might use a pendulum, another might use their hands, while a third might use crystal bowls to create a healing frequency. Still others might use a practice called “muscle testing” to get clear yes or no answers from your individual energy field, and an energy healing practitioner might use any combination thereof.

Most energy work is science based, meaning there is a way to scientifically prove with evidence that an effect has taken place. Numerous modalities exist within the alternative healing community that, while evidence is not able to be disputed, cannot be scientifically verified. Nonetheless, such modalities do work with countless examples and testimonies to back them up. Alternative healing practitioners have been trained in their practices and are trusted by those who have seen, experienced, and lived their effectiveness.

A practitioner is usually certified, rather than licensed or given a diploma like a medical practitioner would receive. That means these practitioners have completed the required training process, and have been able to show that they have absorbed and learned to facilitate results within their specific field. As with anything, a practitioner will improve and expand their skills with time, experience, and practice. Those who are actively and constantly seeking to expand their knowledge and expertise will do so. That being said, it is important to know that each of us as human beings has our own set of gifts. Most practitioners have found themselves drawn to a specific type of healing or modality that fits their specific set of gifts. Even if a person is within their first year of practice, patients and clients will be able to experience great results with these beginning practitioners.

Why will a practitioner be able to see significant results in their patients/clients right away as opposed to having to intern for some number of years in a fashion as conventional western doctors? Simply because the modalities work, and your practitioner is not only trained, but also usually has the ability to “listen” to you. Listening to you and listening to your body actually has little to do with the ears. In reality, listening to you and your body means listening to the body’s attempt to communicate what is wrong and/or what is the underlying ailment or blockage that is causing the ailment? Above and beyond listening to the body, the practitioner also learns to listen to your energy as they work on you. The entire process is dynamic and many times, one ailment leads to another, which leads to another, which leads to numerous unexpected bonus discoveries and breakthroughs for the patient or client. This is why you will often see the beneficiaries of energy healing seam a little overly excited to share their experience with anyone around them whether that person is ready to hear their story or not. Patients/clients are so excited that they just cannot contain themselves.
