Survival Fitness Plan Alternative Medicine Training covers the basics of four types of alternative medicine, i.e., Acupressure, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Herbalism, and Yoga.
The main use for SFP Alternative Medicine Training is for self-help with minor ailments. Anything else should be referred to a doctor, either Western (modern medicine) or Eastern (e.g., Traditional Chinese Medicine) depending on your preference.
You could also use your SFP Alternative Medicine Training on others if all parties involved are comfortable to do so.
Why learn the basics of multiple forms of alternative medicine instead of focusing deeply on one?
Each form of alternative medicine has the potential to help with any ailment, but often one is more useful than the other. Even better is to use a combination.
Depending on your situation, one might be more convenient to use, e.g., herbal medicine may not be suitable when traveling.
Of course, feel free to delve deeper into any subject if you have a particular interest.
Acupressure is similar to acupuncture but uses finger pressure as opposed to needles to *unblock stagnant energy. It was developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago and various forms of it can be found all over the region. In Japan it is Shiatsu, Tui-na in China, Thai massage, Javanese healing massage, and so on. Each of these forms has their uniqueness in application but they all follow the same basic principles and energy points, i.e., meridians.
Survival Fitness Plan Acupressure Training focuses on the “most useful” acupressure points for the prevention and treatment of illness.
*A widely accepted theory in Eastern cultures is that illness and disease are merely symptoms of blocked energy. This blocked energy is the root cause of illness and by unblocking it you can rid the body of disease.
Jin Shin Jyutsu
Jin Shin Jyutsu (JSJ) is an ancient form of touch therapy used to unblock stagnant energy. Kind of like a gentler form of acupressure. In practice, it is basically just putting your hands on certain spots of the body which helps to unblock stagnant energy.
The Survival Fitness Plan makes use of JSJ mainly in the form of “quick fixes” which you can easily apply to yourself, as opposed to full sessions which are typically one hour long and often applied by another JSJ practitioner.
Herbalism is the use of plants for medicinal and therapeutic use. It is one of the oldest forms of medicine in human history and although it is considered an alternative form of medicine many modern pharmaceuticals use plant-derived compounds as a basis.
Survival Fitness Plan Herbal Medicine Training focuses on the use of the most common plants for the prevention and treatment of illness. This is so it is easier for you (the practitioner) to replicate a herbal garden using the plants suggested.
You should also do specific research into plants specific in your area and any area you may be, e.g., if you go hiking in a foreign country.
Yoga is a Hindu discipline which combines meditation and various body postures. It is probably the most widely accepted forms of alternative medicine in the world, although most people view it as a form of relaxation and/or physical exercise.
Survival Fitness Plan Curing Yoga Training uses only basic yoga postures in specific sequences to relieve and/or cure a wide range of ailments.
