Are you looking to try something different besides traditional medicine to help relieve your symptoms? If so, then you may want to try holistic medicine. The goal of holistic medicine is to reach optimal health and wellness by balancing the body, mind, spirit, and emotions. When you are experiencing symptoms of any kind, this is an indication that something is out of balance. Holistic medicine practitioners are experts in restoring balance in the body to improve your health and alleviate your symptoms. Not convinced? Here are five reasons why you should try holistic medicine:
Holistic medicine gets to the root of the problem
When you are experiencing symptoms, these symptoms are caused by a condition. Holistic medicine practitioners work to diagnose and treat the condition rather than simply treating the symptoms. While there are various ways to eliminate symptoms, if the reason for the symptoms is never addressed, then new symptoms will simply continue to arise. Although treating the root of the problem can take longer than only treating the symptoms, this treatment approach will be much more effective.
Holistic medicine looks deeper
When you just don’t feel right, the most frustrating thing is to have your doctor tell you that everything is normal and it’s all in your head. This experience is rare when you see a holistic practitioner. Even if your medical labs and tests have come back as normal, a holistic doctor will keep looking for the cause of your discomfort. Oftentimes, a different approach may stumble across something traditional physicians may have missed. Additionally, there are various non-traditional tests that can be performed as a way of diagnosing the problem. If you feel like something is off, but haven’t received a diagnosis, it may be time to see a holistic practitioner.
Holistic medicine is safe
When it comes to diagnosing and treating patients, holistic medicine only uses natural medications and techniques. Natural medications are safer that man-made prescriptions and do not have the same risk of detrimental side effects. In fact, the side effects associated with natural medications are mild and are not harmful, unlike potential side effects that can occur with various prescription medications. As a final note, natural medications are not addictive or habit forming like some prescription drugs.
Holistic medicine can treat a variety of conditions
Holistic medicine can treat just about any medical condition that traditional medicine can treat. However some common conditions that people visit a holistic practitioner for include: weight loss, thyroid & hormone imbalances, fatigue, cardiovascular risk, Autism, ADD/ADHD, skin disorders, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, and mental health concerns.
Holistic medicine gives you personal attention
Holistic practitioners value personal connection with their patients and take the time to examine and treat them. Unfortunately, traditional physicians often don’t have this ability to spend excess time with their patients due to the amount of patients they see in a day, as well as pressure from insurance companies. With a holistic practitioner, you can expect more one on one time to discuss your questions and concerns.
