Holistic Medicine Provides Patients with Treatment Options

By offering our patients holistic medicine treatments, we give them more options for their healthcare needs. The majority of people go to a family doctor or general practitioner thinking that this is the only type of doctor who can provide them with medical care. They are the most common type of physician, but they are certainly not the only type. Their approach to medical care is a standard form of Western medicine that seeks to identify symptoms, and then to treat them. This method is useful for handling things like a sinus infection, but it is not always the best choice for someone who is suffering from more complicated conditions, or who have been injured. In that case, patients need the option to receive other types of healthcare. This aspect is something we provide in our office.

It comes down to options

We believe that patients should have options regarding the type of health care they receive if they want to take medication and if they want to undergo surgery or other invasive treatments. Our approach is non-invasive, does not depend on medication and seeks to restore balance to the body. For this reason, more and more patients are choosing the type of healthcare we provide.

Holistic medicine takes a different approach

In our office, we take a holistic approach to health care. We evaluate the entire body, including all of the body symptoms and functions, to see how everything is working together. We seek to identify what problems are occurring either in that system individually or how one issue could be impacting other areas of the body. For example, few people realize that a thyroid condition can affect the intestines and make someone constipated. If someone were to visit a doctor for constipation and not have their thyroid checked, the root cause of the issue could be undiagnosed.

Simultaneously, a vertebra being out of alignment can cause issues with digestion as well. These are just two examples of why it is essential to evaluate the body as a whole, rather than focusing on each area of the body as if it were an island.

Benefits of holistic medicine

Since we evaluate and treat the entire body, there are many benefits to this type of medicine. They Include:

  • We identify and address the root cause of a problem so that a patient can heal.
  • Our treatments are natural.
  • Our treatments are noninvasive.
  • There should be no downtime from our treatments.
  • We enable our patients to feel healthier, rather than merely free from illness.

Visiting our office is affordable

Another benefit of visiting us for treatment is that it is affordable to do so. Since many tests and procedures can cost thousands of dollars, patients often fear to visit a general doctor. This is not the case with our patients. We are upfront with the costs and know that our rates are incredibly affordable when compared with many other options.
