If you believe in natural foods, supplements and exercise, you may want to investigate holistic medical care as an alternative. A holistic doctor tries to find the cause of your symptoms instead of, or in addition to, prescribing medicine. A holistic physician may adhere to western medicine while also believing in natural remedies. A trip to a holistic facility may result in your leaving the premises with a prescription and a referral to a chiropractor or acupuncturist.
Holistic medicine derives its name from the idea that a patient is a whole individual instead of separate parts. In lieu of diagnosing one body part, a standard holistic approach relies on treating the entire person. Treating a patient’s physical body, mental state and spiritual soul, holistic medicine considers all aspects of a person’s health. Find out more by making an appointment today.
