Whether you know it or not, you have a toolbox for self-healing. I like to call this your Healing Toolbox.

Tools That Heal are any techniques, methods, tricks, information, protocols and concepts, you use to solve everyday problems for yourself, family, friends and clients.

Some Tools are simple home remedies: what to do for a sunburn, poison ivy, sore feet. Nutritional, diet and lifestyle tools all count! Practical is as practical does!

You also have familiar all-purpose Tools: curiosity, honesty, compassion, empathy, listening.

Some Tools are wisdom gained thru living: how to calm a cranky child, how to break bad news to a friend, how to stage a surprise party.

Some Tools are primarily for self-healing: asking questions, asking for a second opinion, research, goal setting, intention, choice, and love come to mind.

Unless you were fortunate to have had a Waldorf K-12 education, few people arrive at adulthood aware of their Healing Toolbox and how to use it for self-healing.

The origin of "do-it-yourself" and "self-help" began in the 1970s. Without a robust Healing Toolbox of your own, your only choice is outside experts whose expertise you have to pay for. Unhappy about this? We can remedy it today.

In the history of the Earth, there have never been so many healers, techniques, modalities for growth and opportunities to learn as there are right now.

The larger your own Healing Toolbox, it's possible to do a large fraction of your own health-care and self-care.

Healing Toolbox articles introduce you to new Tools That Heal. Each one is learnable in about an hour. All require practice to gain confidence in. Many are worth a lifetime to master, like Compassionate (nonviolent Communication (cnvc.org).

Your Toolbox is unique to you

Each Healing Toolbox is unique because each person is unique. Further, each practitioner uses the same tool with clients. Find a full discussion on this in the article "Each person heals uniquely."

More on how we use tools

You know how to use a door handle, a screwdriver, a hammer, a shovel. You know how to use a pencil, a hair curler, a paintbrush. Tools by themselves just sit there You are the active party. The tool waits for you to pick it up. You pick up the tool because it increases your leverage to effect change and/or gives access you wouldn’t otherwise have. Tools activate by use and practice. Same with Tools That Heal.

I have about 20 dental tools at home because once I had a great success keeping myself out of emergency dental care with a handmade dental tool I used to scrape clean an infected tooth by the gum-line. Now I have professional dental tools. However since I don't know how to use these funny shaped dental surgical knives, they sit in my hardware toolbox rusting away. A real dentist would be using such tools every day and getting more and more skilled with them.

You will become skilled with the tools you use and on the problems you wish to solve.
