My name is Averall Dickin and I’m a Holistic Healthcare Professional who was internationally trained in the UK and South Africa.
I was born in South Africa and, being from a large family (5 sisters and 2 brothers), my mother was very interested in our health and well being. She used self healing with herbs, essential oils and Alternative therapies.
Over the years I have gained great knowledge in Alternative Therapies and caring for Disabled People.
In my own family, different people were the keepers of various recipes.
My Mother knew how to make a bruise ointment, Tonic Rosemary wine and my granny pickled fruit and vegetables in sealed glass jars for out of season times. She also used to make vinegars and poultices.
The family relinquished its memories of home remedies to first aid etc.
A Holistic approach means you will not list only the symptoms, but you will try to unearth the causes of the symptoms.
Sometimes the cause will be obvious, and you can immediately alleviate or eliminate the causal factors.
Other times the reasons of a symptom will be hidden, but since you will be thinking about it, and idea may pop out to redirect your activities.
An example of this thinking might be working out the cause of a specific headache.
Is the headache from a toothache?
If you rub under the tooth, on the gum, and the headache goes away, you know you have a dental problem. In the meantime, if a dentist isn’t available immediately, you can use the herbal therapy or massage the area. Nature’s own way of self help.
Holistic treatments - Touch by healing, be it through the feet as in Reflexology has great healing properties to the whole body.
Thai foot massage, deep pressure.
Kinesiology works on muscle testing and balancing the whole person.
Indian Head massage, relieves tension in the head, neck and shoulders and is great for people who work long hours - e.g.: on the computer.
Reiki - Hands on healing, is the most wonderfully treatment, shifting the energies and taking healing to where it is need the most.
Worth a try is changing you’re eating habits, doing exercise, relaxation and meditation. This is all part of a healthy lifestyle.
