“Holistic” medicine addresses the whole person – body, mind, and spirit – in the quest to achieve optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health by gaining proper balance in life. Holistic and Alternative Medicine are more patient-centered.
Not all holistic practitioners spend an hour with their patients the way a Naturopathic Physician does, nevertheless, they focus on the patient as a whole, including their stress level, diet, and lifestyle habits. Our first principle is to do no harm, and our objective is to locate the main cause and not just treat the symptoms. We believe in more natural and safe methods of healing, and only use pharmaceuticals when absolutely necessary!
