Holistic Healing; Modern Medicine
What is Holistic Healing; Modern Medicine?
"Holistic Healing; Modern Medicine" refers to blending the best of modern medicine with the wisdom of traditional healing.
I believe that in most cases the body, if properly supported, has the wisdom to heal itself. I believe in utilizing many different modalities, including using medicine and surgery but also nutrition, supplements, energy medicine, and mind/body/spirit medicine, to support the body in this process.
The formula that I follow is very straightforward. Through a detailed interview, physical examination and laboratory testing, I look for sources of imbalance in a person's physical function and life. I then try to correct the imbalances and treat the symptoms using the wide range of holistic, conventional medical and mind/body/spirit strategies and tools at my disposal.
As long as the patient agrees, I then use the gifts of science and advances of modern medicine as a backup to holistic therapies. I prefer to address issues holistically because of the minimal incidence of negative side effects combined with the high likelihood of success. Medicine and surgery, used cautiously and judiciously, can be very helpful. The main reason that I prefer to use them as a last resort is because they affect the entire body and can be associated with severe side effects.
The beauty of "Holistic Healing; Modern Medicine" is that by assessing and healing a patient emotionally as well as physically, I not only have the ability to treat a particular health crisis, I have an opportunity to improve their life as well.
