Functional Medicine Explained

Holistic Medicine

Holistic Medicine: The art and science of healing that addresses the whole person through body, mind and soul. The practice integrates conventional and alternative therapies to prevent and treat disease, and most importantly, to promote optimal health. This condition of holistic health is defined as the unlimited and unblocked flow of an individual’s life force energy through body, mind, and spirit. It encompasses safe and appropriate modalities of diagnosis and treatment. It includes analysis of emotional, environmental, lifestyle, nutritional and physical elements. It focuses on patient education and participation through the healing process. Physicians that practice this form of medicine take on a safe, effective option in diagnosing and treatment. This includes an education for lifestyle changes and caring for one’s self. Much like chiropractic this style of medicine aims to find the underlying cause of an individual’s injury and condition.
