Healing From Within



The concept of healing from within comes from the holistic approach to medicine. It deals with the human being as a whole and focuses, not only on the physical ailments but also on nursing the soul and the spirit of the person. Complete healing comes when you are bestowed with absolute physical and mental health that leaves room for spiritual nurturing.

The power to being fully cured including the physical and the spiritual self lies with the person him or herself.  Nature is intricately linked to human spirituality. It helps heal the spirit in a way that nothing else can. The human physiology responds to nature because this is where the man evolves in spirit. It is the nature that helps us understand our link with all the life forms occurring around us and our inter-dependency. No wonder, a walk in the garden has more soothing and calming effects than listening to the music when a person is stressed out. Similarly, watching some scenery or a waterfall exerts a soothing effect for the strained nerves, forcing a person to calm down.

In addition to providing a means to ward off bodily illnesses, nature has its way of improving the spiritual wellbeing of a person. This psychological comfort comes from the healing power of nature. Hospitals now come with special natural gardens to help the patient heal completely and improve their quality of life through physical as well as psychological health. Healing natural gardens serve multiple functions for health of the patients. They serve as a means of promoting physical activity, cast a serene aura leading to a calming effect, encourage social interaction between people helping them heal together and also serve as a place to brood over the life and controlling one’s life in a better way.

In addition to all these benefits, nature gardens can be used to grow plants and herbs that bring physical benefit to the patients. They can also be used to grow specific kind of flora for medicinal purposes. Nature’s garden supplements also serve to enhance the physical and mental health as well as the spiritual health of a person. Various supplements contain all-natural products to promote the health of patients. Similarly, vitamins can also be used for fostering the physical and psychological health of a person. These vitamins are necessary for optimal health of the patients and for them to heal quickly from their diseases.  This is how complete health of a person is ensured.



Natasha Pierre McCarthy is the proud founder of Vitiligo Bond Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support and encouragement to individuals with vitiligo. From a vision through teaching as a Christian business professor, Vitiligo Bond was created. We educate through creative forms to patients and the public. Through vitiligo 101 sessions at Emory University with Dr. Holla, special community events, social media, partner support groups, public figures and state leaders we are able to bond and have available support for anyone suffering with vitiligo. Vitiligo Bond has created a path for vitiligo awareness and positive expression. We now have the following states through Governor Proclamations that recognize vitiligo awareness: {Colorado, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, & West Virginia}. In addition, Vitiligo Bond has been recognized by Congressman Hank Johnson. Congressman Johnson was also instrumental in our advocacy efforts to help get special recognition during the month of June from our President Obama to recognize and stand together with people who suffer with vitiligo. I believe that God created us for a purpose and everyone deserves the right to have fullness and a quality life. We all have the ability to shine. Vitiligo Bond Inc. is constantly working to raise awareness of the mysterious illness and use their platform in order to fund research that will hopefully lead to the discovery of the cause and a cure for vitiligo.
