Relaxation and Breathwork

Relaxation is one of the most important steps for restoring and maintaining health. When we are stressed out it puts our body in a state of disharmony, making it difficult to focus, think clearly and even heal. This is where deep diaphragmatic breathing can come in handy. It helps to reduce stress, relax the body and create a feeling of peace. To practise diaphragmatic breathing, watch how a baby breathes and try to mimic their technique. Inhale through your nose, letting the air fill your lower belly and pushing your belly button into your spine with the exhale.

Healing with Diet and Environment

Eating nourishing and whole foods that best support your individual nutritional needs is essential for healing and restoring balance in the body. Particularly a plant-based diet rich in antioxidants, healthy fats and fibres will help to create a healthy environment, boost immunity and protect against issues like high blood pressure and heart disease. It’s also important to be mindful of your environment; getting lots of fresh air, pure drinking water and some appropriate amounts of sunshine is important to reduce exposure to dust, pollen, chemicals and noise.

Natural Healing Techniques

There are a variety of natural healing techniques that can help your body heal and restore balance. Acupuncture, massage therapy, Reiki, yoga and meditation can all work to reduce stress levels and improve overall wellbeing. These practices are also believed to help decrease inflammation and improve the flow of energy throughout the body, promoting better physical and emotional health.

Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional therapy is another way to support and nourish your body, helping to give it the best opportunity to heal itself. By eating the right foods and following a diet rich in whole foods, antioxidants, healthy fats, prebiotics and probiotics, we can nourish from the inside out. Leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, deeply coloured fruits like blueberries and pomegranates are all great sources of nutrients and vitamins that will help to reduce inflammation and improve immunity.


Rest is an important part of healing and allowing our body to repair and regenerate itself. Try to get around 7 hours of sleep every night and practice self-care techniques that help you to relax and reconnect. Adequate rest will help to reduce inflammation and inflammation-related health problems, and give your body the best chance to heal faster.


Healing your body naturally is possible if you take the steps to create an environment to support and nourish it. Relaxation and diaphragmatic breathing is essential for calming down and reducing stress. Eating whole foods, especially those with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, are key for reducing inflammation and protecting against diseases. Lastly, getting enough restful sleep and engaging in natural healing techniques are beneficial tools that can help to restore balance and wellbeing in the body. The journey to healing your body is a personal process that takes time, but by following the steps above you are giving your body the best chance to naturally heal and restore balance.
