Naturopath VictoriaA naturopath is a medical practitioner who gives natural therapies. His/her spectrum is far more than normal exercises, fasting, water and nutrition, however, it includes natural healing practices that have been approved. These practices include acupuncture, homeopathy, and herbal medicine.

Other modern methods practiced in naturopathy are ozone-therapy, bio-resonance and colon hydrotherapy. The world today has changed drastically with respect to technology, environmental pollution, diets as well as increased levels of stress and these changes have a negative effect on the health of people and as such the ability of a naturopath to apply natural methods of healing is significantly important. Many patients’ long search for health would ultimately end with a visit to a naturopath. Naturopathy provides the patient with a personalized session of therapy that sees the whole humankind as a holistic unity of the mind, body and soul.

A naturopath Victoria usually employs different methods in diagnosing their patients. These methods have occasionally proven to be successful in pin pointing certain predispositions in the body even before the onset of the acute disease and provide the patient with appropriate therapeutic treatments as well as the changes the patients can effect in their lifestyles. These health practitioners can carry out their services or practices as freelancers.

They can also work in hospitals, spas, health centers, research, and administration, in the media or management in the retail industry. Naturopaths can also be found in beauty clinics as well as in family and nutritional consultancy. They can also specialize in sports, infertility, children, skin problems or geriatrics.

Principles of Naturopathy

Naturopathy derives its principles from the Greek philosopher Hippocrates who thought that in order to find the cause of a disease, you have to view the whole person and use the laws of nature in inducing the disease’s cure. The principles include:

• Nature’s healing power – nature has an innate ability to heal the body and rejuvenate it

• Identify the cause and treat it – there is always a cause, either physical or emotional

• Do no harm – naturopaths never use medications that result in other problematic conditions in the body

• Treat the person as a whole – consider all aspects of a human’s being when preparing the treatment plan

• Naturopaths are the teachers – naturopaths empower patients to be responsible of their health by teaching them the art of self-care.

• Prevention is better than cure – naturopaths may get rid of toxins and certain conditions from the lifestyle of a person to prevent the onset of another condition.

Couples Counselling            Communication is an integral part that makes a relationship or marriage lasts for a long time. Its presence must be able to clear things out as well as releasing feelings and thoughts of two loving individuals. But in most cases, the lost of active communication is affected by ignoring or inactive listening towards love conversations that lead to quarrels and fights. Most counselors would tell that in love partnership, the importance of being able to listen and not just to hear must be practice. Here are the truths about listening.

It’s a relationship skill

As stated a while ago, when both parties are able to fully listen and understand what each says then there will be good conclusions and understanding. Though most cases state that partners aren’t able to distinguish what is mere hearing to active listening. It is considered a skill that should be practiced and mastered as well as the best thing of gift that both sides can give to each other.

It is an activity

It means that an individual must not only wait for his or her turn to speak but he or she should be able to know what the other side is telling and identify what the feelings or emotions he or she wants to tell so that a comprehension will be meet and a conversation will be a success.

Can manage emotions

When someone learns to listen, he or she will be able to determine the real feelings and at the end, they will understand each other’s stand and avoidance of any damages or cracks in the bond will occur.

It is an emotional skill

It is a skill in terms of emotion in the sense that when someone is able to fully listen and comprehend with what the other side is stating, he or she will eventually able to see the good point and may lead to better situations.

Communication is not just about speaking but also the ability to listen because there will be no outcome if it is only a one way scenario. Remember the importance of true listening than just mere hearing the words coming out of the speaker’s mouth. If you’d like to learn more about marriage counselling I’d suggest checking out couples counselors in Langley and Surrey, BC from BestMarriages Counselling and Workshop Centre. They’re really great and I highly recommend them.

The Vancouver Film School has moved its film and animation facilities onto the Gastown building once occupied by Storyeum, with the aim of training young talent for the city’s growing visual effects industry.

Storyeum was an interactive exhibit for visitors to learn about B.C.’s past. It opened in 2004 at a cost of $22 million, but dismal crowds caused it to go bankrupt just two years later.

The large building sat virtually empty for several years, until the Vancouver Film School moved its animation school in last August. Then in early May its film production facility moved into the space as well.

Managing director Marty Hasselbach says the local job prospects for students are looking good, now that Sony Imageworks has announced it’s moving its headquarters from California to Vancouver next April.

“We’ve been very instrumental in providing talent for this industry for the last 27 years, and that’s exactly what we are going to do,” says Hasselbach.

“We’re creating the next iteration of people that are going to work at the Sonys, work at the Industrial Light and Magics, work at the Dreamworks, as they come through the programs here at the school.” says Hasselbach.

Students at such as Steve Schwartz agree the expanded studios and classrooms are just about big enough to fit their own dreams.

“I’d like to be a director, but that’s what everyone says,” says Schwartz.
