Holistic medicine is a term used to describe therapies that attempt to treat the patient as a whole person, not just one part of the body or system. That is, instead of treating an illness, as in orthodox allopathy, holistic medicine looks at an individual's overall physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing before recommending treatment. A practitioner with a holistic approach treats the symptoms of illness as well as looking for the underlying cause of the illness. Holistic medicine also attempts to prevent illness by placing a greater emphasis on optimizing health. The body's systems are seen as interdependent parts of the person's whole being. Its natural state is one of health, and an illness or disease is an imbalance in the body's systems. Holistic therapies tend to emphasize proper nutrition and avoidance of substances—such as chemicals—that pollute the body. Their techniques are non-invasive. While holistic medicine is considered mainstream in many parts of the world it has only become widespread in the United States in the past twenty years.
There are no limits to the range of diseases and disorders that can be treated in a holistic way, as the principle of holistic healing is to balance the body, mind, spirit, and emotions so that the person's whole being functions smoothly. When an individual seeks holistic treatment for a particular illness or condition, other health problems improve without direct treatment, due to improvement in the performance of the immune system, which is one of the goals of holistic medicine.
There are a number of therapies that come under the umbrella of "holistic medicine." They all use basically the same principles, promoting not only physical health, but also mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Here are some of the major holistic therapies: herbal medicine homeopathy naturopathic medicine traditional Chinese medicine Ayurvedic medicine nutritional therapies chiropractic stress reduction psychotherapy massage
A properly balanced holistic health regimen, which takes into consideration all aspects of human health and includes noninvasive and non-pharmaceutical healing methods, can often completely eradicate even acute health conditions safely. If a patient is being treated with allopathic medicine, holistic therapies may at least support the body during treatment, and alleviate the symptoms that often come with drug treatments and surgery. In addition, holistic therapies aim at the underlying source of the illness, to prevent recurrence.
We use noninvasive procedures to diagnose and treat. We avoid the suppression of symptoms and respect each individual's self-healing process.
The primary goal is to identify the underlying cause of the illness & remove the obstacles to recovery. We do not merely treat symptoms, we use these symptoms to understand the root cause of the underlying pathology (disease.)
We provider essential information for each patient to make informed choices while encouraging them to take a more active role in their healthcare. Knowledge is power and we share this with you so you can be an empowered person about your health!
We focus on all aspects of health & wellness by treating each patient as a unique individual. We help patients discover their optimal physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual selves.
We help prevent disease by assessing risk factors, identifying susceptibility to disease, & educating our patients on practices that are beneficial to their overall health.
