When you do not want a doctor to simply prescribe a painkiller and send you on your way, you may be ready to look into different types of medicine. Holistic doctors practice alternative medicine that is meant to help the body heal as naturally as possible. There is merit in what western medicine has to offer, but when you choose alternative medicine, it is also effective. Learn more about it, then call to set up an appointment.
The History of Holistic Doctors
There has been conjecture about the origins of the holistic health movement citing Hippocrates in Ancient Greece to 19th century Europe.
Holistic healing, or naturopathy, became popular in the 1970s in North America. There remain skeptics and critics of the entire practice to this day.
The main idea of holistic healing is to make you healthy physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and mentally. The idea is that the body can naturally heal when all five of these elements are balanced and healthy.
Services Our Holistic Doctors Provide
Holistic healing has been around for almost all of human history. According to the World Health Organization, as much as 80% of people rely solely on holistic medicine today.
Acupuncture is meant to work with the body’s energy pathways to heal. This is an ancient Chinese medicinal practice using needles to activate spots on the body specifically made to heal. Acupuncture is used to heal all kinds of issues including injuries, chronic pain, migraines, menstrual cramps, depression, anxiety, fertility issues, etc.
Depending on what you come in for, your session can last anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours. The number of needles, as well as placement of the needles used on you, are also going to vary based on what you are there to treat.
We strongly recommend looking into acupuncture if you want a natural way to heal what ails you.
Chiropractic care is a great option for people with injuries, stiffness, or those who feel like something is being pinched or is out of alignment.
Chiropractors adjust the alignment of your spine and joints to allow proper energy flow in the body. When you have misalignments, your health can suffer. It is said that with proper alignment, it is easier for the body to fight off disease and misfunction of the central nervous system. This type of treatment is meant to be complementary.
If this is something that you are interested in, we are here to get you set up with an appointment right away. We provide both treatments under the same roof.
