Self-healing is natural healing, which is a process of restoring health and wellness in the most natural way. It restores the body, the mind, and the soul, not by merely suppressing the symptoms of any disease or disorder, but by completely getting rid of it through utilizing resources naturally available to the body, the mind, and the soul.
Essentially, self-healing is self-cure using specific processes to stimulate the body so that illnesses are eliminated on their own. Without the need to introduce foreign entitles to the body, your body system itself is filled with natural defenses and antibodies adequate to help you recover from any form of disease.
Self-Healing and Conventional Medicine
Natural healing has long proven to be a very good alternative to the traditional way of healing practiced by medical doctors.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, was a holistic medical practitioner, intent on treating the complete person, whereas today's medical doctors tend to specialize in exquisitely narrow fields of anatomic and physiologic expertise. For this reason, conventional medicine simply leaves the balance of the human body to an individual. Hippocrates was a devoted and objective empiricist, while modern doctors spend so little time with each patient that there is little room for serious observation skills. A case in point, Hippocrates focused so much on the importance of wholeness in the self-healing process of his patients that he literally tasted their urine, not to mention their sweat; nowadays, doctors in the United States, on average, spend less than 30 minutes with a patient.
That said, it does not mean that modern medicine has no place in natural healing. This site is not intended as a substitute for medical advice or modern medicine, but rather as an adjunct to your doctors' care. The fact of the matter is that in the past decades, many "new" diseases have emerged, such as AIDS and SARS; there are also many psychosomatic conditions, degenerative diseases, chronic ailments, and stress-induced syndromes that have produced a set of symptoms not easily classified according to Western medicine. As a result, many conventional doctors prescribe medications that may relieve disease symptoms only for a while. Accordingly, many individuals feel the need to seek an integrated approach to health and natural self-healing.
The art of medicine means much more than just giving a drug to or performing a procedure on a patient. Instead, the art is in guiding the patient to experience his or her highest potential in the safest way possible to recover from a disease or disorder. The ultimate goal of the art of modern medicine is to foster the awareness of wellness, and the quest for self-healing.

Indeed, self-healing is a voyage of self-discovery of what you want out of your life.
