FemiNatural is the holistic medical counseling that makes use of the healing possibilities of nature and the complementary therapies for the sake of the physical, mental and emotional health of women. In this therapeutic approach, it is very important to deal with chronic stress.
In classical medicine, we make a diagnosis based on the symptoms and signs of the patient, and we use drugs and surgery as treatments. However, this approach in many cases, such as in chronic diseases, is not useful. Why is this happening? We know that many times under a symptom or illness lies a deeper cause. For example, vaginitis is due not only to a microbe but also to the underlying disorder of the smooth functioning of the immune system. The same applies to other gynaecological disorders, such as premenstrual syndrome, recurrent miscarriages, dysmenorrhea, infertility, climacteric symptoms and also, for diseases from other body systems and organs, such as irritable bowel, overactive bladder, headaches, anxiety disorder, allergic rhinitis, asthma, eczema and many others. In all the above cases the classical therapeutic agents and especially the drugs, not only offer temporary relief, but they also carry the risk of side effects.
If drugs and surgery are not necessary, FemiNatural may suggest phytotherapies, dietary supplements, balanced diet, exercise, physiotherapy, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, continuous mental stimulation by reading and lifelong learning, engaging in art, ending problems in work and personal life, hobbies and psychotherapy. Moreover, counselling incorporates complementary therapies such as acupuncture, reflexology, massage, since they have shown excellent results.
This medical practise has to goals: first, treating an illness and second, helping the patient to achieve mental, emotional and physical health and a life in harmony with our natural environment.
