Holistic Medicine

Holistic Medicine is an approach to practicing medicine that encourages the cooperation of all involved (patient, doctor, loved ones) to achieve a state of good health and wellbeing. A Holistic Medical Practitioner will look at the whole body and the whole person as opposed to relying solely on a diagnosis and just treating symptoms of a disease. Practitioners of Holistic Medicine put emphasis on evaluating the physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, spiritual, and lifestyle values that are contributing to one’s current state of health or illness. Holistic Medical Practitioners will look at ways to be less invasive and more conservative in their treatment options but will not rule out the use of conventional medical practice if the need arises.
