Holistic and Homeopathic Medicine
The word holistic stems from the Greek word holism and translates to “all, whole, entire’ – As such, the term ’holistic medicine’ embraces a larger definition of treatment, one that does not always work within the confines of conventional medicine. More precisely, holism is a philosophy that believes in treating the whole person and in the integration of mind, body and spirit. Holism promotes that these three elements must be treated together to truly be healed as illness or injury are the result of disharmony in the mind, body, or spirit which is viewed as one in the holistic belief system.
Homeopathic medicine is the practice of medicine that embraces a holistic and natural approach to treating illness. Like holistic medicine, homeopathy treats the person as a whole, rather than focusing on a singular symptom. Homeopathy uses natural sources and remedies that are prepared in accordance with FDA standards.
Homeopathy also comes from the Greek and translates to “like disease” – meaning the medicine given is like the disease the person is experiencing. The homeopathic provider will find the remedy whose materia medica (drug picture) is most similar to that of the patient’s disease characteristic. That homeopathy prescription is given to the patient to stimulate healing: likes cures likes.
Holistic and Homeopathic Treatments
Our holistic and homeopathic providers combine modern, Western medical treatments with alternative medicine or complementary treatments, such as chiropractic, and massage.
The difference between homeopathic vs. holistic practices might be that the homeopathic doctor would prepare a remedy in liquid or tablet form, while the holistic provider might also provide their patient with the option of a pharmaceutical drug in addition to alternative treatments, which could also include a homeopathic remedy.
Those remedies might also include:
- Nutritional-Botanical Supplement Treatments
- Osteopathic Treatments
- Cranial Osteopathy
- Cardiovascular Health Therapies
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapies
