Body Temperature

What is Body Temperature?

The body’s normal body temperature is approximately 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit
(37. 0ºC).
What causes High Temperature?
Developing a high temperature is apart of the body’s natural way of supporting the
immune system in fighting off illness and infection, however, it can become
dangerous if the body’s temperature becomes too high, especially in children.
When children and infants develop a fever it is very important to monitor them
closely and try and bring down their fevers to avoid complications such as
and febrile seizures. In addition, it’s not enough to reduce a fever
without trying to discover the underlying cause.

In some cases, a mild fever in infants and children are indicative of a serious illness

that needs medical attention and prompt treatment. However, low grade fevers

There are plenty of over-the counter medications used to reduce a high
temperature, however, many come with unwanted side-effects and may cause
more damage than good. Aspirin in particular should never be given to children as
it can trigger the potentially fatal Reye’s syndrome.
Many parents are therefore turning to herbal and homeopathic remedies to
naturally reduce fevers gently and effectively without worrying risks or side-
effects. Both Yarrow and Meadowsweet have long histories of use in reducing
fevers and relieving fever-related symptoms.

Other herbal ingredients that work well for sick and feverish children include
Passiflora incarnate which helps to promote sleep and ease irritability, and
Echinacea purpurea and Astragalus membranaceous which both work to
strengthen and support the immune system for a faster recovery.
Tips for regulating body temperature:
● Make sure you monitor your child’s fever closely. This can be done by
checking your child’s temperature at least every 4 hours until it has
completely subsided.
● Guard against dehydration by ensuring your child drinks plenty of fluids
and make sure these do not contain caffeine.
● A lukewarm bath or sponge bath will help to cool down a high fever but
never use cold water or ice.
● Encourage plenty of bed rest as moving around raises body temperature
even more. This can be tricky with children that get frustrated when
confined to bed, so you may have to think creatively. Try quiet activities
such as coloring, game books, books on tape and playing cards.
● Dress your child in light cotton pajamas so that body heat can escape and do
not bundle your child up at bedtime.

The Natural Approach

While Western medicine has become the norm in many cultures, it is not the only
Michele Carelse, Clinical
treatment option. Conventional western medicine, often called allopathic
medicine, is the system of medicine taught at most medical schools and most
pharmaceutical and synthetic medicines are manufactured and marketed
according to the principles of allopathic medicine. Allopathic medicine is also
sometimes called orthodox medicine.
Because most of us in the Western world have grown up in a society in which
allopathic medicine is the prevailing norm, we forget that, only a few decades ago,
homeopathic, herbal and other natural medicines were commonly available – and
freely used even by conventional doctors. While there are often heated debates
about which system of medicine is ‘better’ than the other, many responsible
doctors (whether they are allopathic or not) recognize that both have a role to play
in the treatment program.

medicine can accomplish just as much, if not more – without the risk of side

pharmaceutical drugs. Contrary to common perception, and provided that they are

promote healing.

Common Questions Asked About Holistic Health Distance Learning Courses:
What is Certification?
Most schools will offer an exam that tests the student's
knowledge of the material taught in the respective course.
Upon successful completion of this exam, a Certificate or
Diploma will be issued by the school attesting that the student
has successfully met the requirements as specified by that
school. The only governmental recognition of Aromatherapy in
North America is the occupational title designation granted to
the BCAOA under the Societies Act of British Columbia.
What is a Certified Aromatherapist or Reflexologist?
Most prospective students want to know whether taking our
courses will lead to their becoming 'Certified' in that healing
modality, thereby leading to the title of Certified
Aromatherapist, Certified Reflexologist or Certified
Color/Crystal Therapist. The answer to this really depends on
what you mean by 'Certified." We believe it can be misleading
to purport that completing a course in a healing modality such
as reflexology, aromatherapy or color/crystal therapy will lead
to a designation of 'Certified' Therapist. These are not official
title designations nor are they ones which are recognized by any country's governmental body. All that these titles mean is
that this is what an Individual Instructor, School or Institution decided to put on the Diploma it awards those who successfully
complete their course.
What is an accredited course in Aromatherapy or Reflexology?
The answer to this will depend on who you are asking. At the present time, British Columbia is the only government to
recognize Aromatherapy as a distinct profession and has granted Occupational Title Protection to the members of the BCAOA
(British Columbia Alliance of Aromatherapy) with the exclusive right for its members to call themselves Registered
Aromatherapists (R.A.).
At this time, neither Reflexology nor Color/Crystal Therapy have such occupational designations in any country although one
prominent Reflexology school in Colorado, The Modern Institute of Reflexology, has gained occupational designation for their
institution in that state. MIR has been designated by the Colorado State Division of Private Occupational Schools - Dept. of
Higher Education as an approved school. Our Reflexologist who developed the reflexology modules for our courses was trained
at MIR as a Certified Reflexologist, a Master Reflexologist and a Dr. of Reflexology.
In the United States, the NAHA (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy) has put into place their Approved Standards
for Aromatherapy Training. The Alternative Healing Academy's Advanced Aromatherapy course meets and exceeds these
standards and we are in the application process of becoming an approved program through the NAHA.
In Canada, there are a number of different Associations including the BCAPA (British Columbia Association of Practicing
Aromatherapists and the CFA (Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists). Time will tell if one authoritative body or association
becomes the standard by which to judge and govern the educational offerings of these alternative healing modalities.
It has to be noted that NO form of aromatherapy "certification" is currently recognized in the USA by anyone other than
those in the trade, nor is aromatherapy (or essential oils in the aromatherapy trade) regulated by any governmental

Course Testimonials
"I'm done! Going through the final and the case studies and having such amazing experiences and opportunities to help
people, I truly feel blessed and honored to have had the intense education that came with this course. I discovered in me a
new ability to serve others, not only through education but through the power of healing that comes with the use of
essential oils. I am continuing to train personally with Alexandria Brighton and have begun work toward opening an
aromatherapy practice. Thank you so much for your patience and knowledge. Most of all thank you for this new way of
living and enjoying Life."
~A. Lindquist - Advanced Aromatherapy Practitioner
"I am finding the course great. It is written very well so even people like me can understand the human body a whole lot
better. I just hope that I can remember it all. I don't think I have a chance of remembering the names of everything
in the muscular system or the movement system. But, I do have more of an understanding of how everything works now. I
find it just amazing. Thanks Heaps."
~M. Oliver - Basic Anatomy & Physiology
"This information is great that you are teaching. I would really like to talk my oldest daughter into taking your course. It
really goes into detail which is very informative."
~Debbie F. - Basic Reflexology
"Seven years ago I started to see a reflexologist for migraines and sinus problems. I was amazed that I finally found relief
without medication. I decided this year to search out a course in reflexology so I could help family and friends and show
them the benefits of reflexology. I researched various courses on the internet and decided to go with the basic course
through the Alternative Healing Academy. I was impressed with course material and the ease of receiving the course
"I was given an choice of having a CD sent to me or to receiving and sending back the assignments through email. I choose
email. I received 3 lessons at a time that I could read and study on my own time frame and return the lessons when I was
done. Everything was sent in a very timely manner and communication was open and quick. If I needed help, I knew it was
only a click away and the response time was very quick. The techniques used also came in a video mode in the email that I
could replay as much as I needed to.
"I felt I learned a lot and am able to help myself and others. Being able to log 20 hours of treatment time and writing the
case histories for the final exam was extremely rewarding and helpful. I would recommend this course to others interested
in reflexology because the course material was very informative and complete and written in easy to understand language."
~Jean Russell - Basic Reflexology Course
"I'm so excited about (the Advanced Aromatherapy course) and I'm particularly excited about the possibility of making
custom blends for people! I hadn't anticipated having that opportunity when I took the course so I'm excited to have
everything done! I'm very excited to have finished. I really enjoyed this course and really appreciate all the work you've put
into it! This has been a fabulous jumping off point for me and I'm so glad I took it.
"p.s. I know the boys are much slower at the Reflexology, but my son is loving the classes."
