What is Holistic Medicine?

Holistic medicine is a new way of thinking that incorporates new strategies with traditional eastern wisdom. The primary belief of holistic medicine is that the body is capable of healing!

If you believe the body can heal itself, then you might already be holistic!

Rather than simply fighting disease, holistic medicine focuses on addressing physical, mental, and internal health to provide high quality of life and happiness in the journey. We believe that you are a person and we don’t need to label you as a disease.

Is Holistic Medicine Science Based?

A holistic doctor may use a variety of healthcare from conventional medical training to alternative therapies. Their “box of tools” to treat individuals can be very large or focused on only a few therapies. Acupuncture, chiropractic, functional medicine, massage therapy, naturopathy, and more are all considered within the holistic medicine realm.

Inside of traditional medicine, there is a large following for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). By using the latest research in complementary and alternative medicine we are able to implement new and improved strategies within weeks to months after research is performed, rather than waiting for 15 years for it to be incorporated into medical textbooks.

We have offices in Mesa, AZ and Scottsdale, AZ. If you need a holistic doctor it is important to consider their philosophy and see if it matches yours. As holistic therapies can vary from reiki treatment to specialized lab tests, it is important that you find a holistic doctor that offers the therapies you are looking for. At our offices for example, we don’t offer emotional counseling. We focus on herbal therapies, lifestyle and nutrition that can support the adrenal glands that help your body deal with your current or past emotional or stress needs and we might suggest someone to work on the emotional and mental healing process in another office.

What Can a Holistic Doctor Treat That Traditional Medicine Can’t?

Generally speaking, traditional doctors focus on treating symptoms. If you have a migraine, they may give you a medication to stop the migraine.

Holistic doctors focuses on the entire body and asks the question, “What caused the migraine in the first place?” Then a holistic doctor may focus on dietary exposures, environmental toxins, food sensitivities, low grade infection, etc. in order to avoid the migraine triggers and decrease inflammation associated with migraines.

In our opinion, holistic is always the way to go! Medicine often has great solutions for acute and traumatic conditions while holistic is often the best treatment from chronic conditions:

List of chronic conditions that holistic medicine treats:

  • Acute and chronic pain conditions > from the accident that just happened to the pain you’ve had for years that doesn’t respond to any other treatment.
  • Hormonal imbalances (pre & post menopause women’s health issues, thyroid and adrenal disorders, PMS)
  • Arthritic and autoimmune diseases
  • Digestive disturbances (irritable bowel, food intolerances, heartburn, etc.)
  • Low energy / fatigue (from not enough energy to chronic fatigue syndrome)
  • Sleep difficulties / disturbances (insomnia, awakening in mid-sleep, night sweats, restlessness)
  • Chemical sensitivities / food allergies
  • Immune system dysfunctions – frequent colds & infections, chronic immune suppression issues
  • Children, with a special understanding of those with developmental delays and Autism Spectrum Challenges
  • Athletes, from the beginner to the elite; increasing performance, overcoming injuries (chronic and acute), preventing injuries, recovering faster
