Primary Modalities Used at Horizon Natural Medicine

Homeopathy:

the word homeopathy is derived from the Greek words homeo, meaning “similar,” and pathos, meaning “suffering”. Homeopathy operates on a “like cures like” principle. Translated, this means that a patient suffering from symptoms can be treated by micro-doses of a substance capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person. This system of medicine has been used empirically for over 200 years, and its efficacy has now been demonstrated in numerous scientific studies and publications. What differentiates homeopathy from other treatments like herbs, vitamins, and medications is that it stimulates the body’s own self-healing mechanisms. Also, due to the use of micro-doses, this method of treatment is very safe and can be used small children, pregnant women, and the elderly without risk of side-effects or drug-drug interactions.

Individualized Nutrition:

based on the premise that humans have a high degree of biochemical individuality, and that contrary to popular belief, there is no “one size fits all” diet that works for everyone. We use a unique in-office testing procedure created by Dr. Peter D’Adamo that combines the assessment of cellular markers in the blood with biometric measurements and dematoglyphicic data to determine the optimal diet for each individual patient. At the end of evaluation, patients are provided with anincredibly detailed, reader friendly and versatile report, along with a complete online recipe module that can call upon a universe of over 900 recipes that fit their specific dietary profile.

 Biolinguistic Kinesiology (BLK) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT):

these are powerful healing methods based on research showing thatemotional trauma contributes greatly to disease.BLK applies methods of muscle testing to identify the primary energetic disturbances and emotional blockages in the body. Once these are found, EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy and combines them with acupressure to “clear” or therapeutically modify, the negative patterns. Over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, pain, and other problems. This technique is especially beneficial when combined with proper dietary and homeopathic treatment, as the three modalities together often address and rectify the most common causes of disease.
