How To Find A Holistic Practitioner

One of the most commonly asked questions at the Center for Holistic Medicine is ‘How do I find a holistic doctor in my area?’

First, let us clarify a few terms. When talking about ‘holistic medicine’, we are referring to a combination of conventional and alternative practices that address a patient’s overall health rather than merely treating the symptoms of a particular illness. ‘Alternative medicine’ simply denotes a medical approach or technique that is not commonly practiced by ‘conventional’ doctors or taught in medical schools.

Surprisingly, medical schools do not educate their future doctors about the importance of health, diet and nutrition. Rather, these schools place an emphasis on making a diagnosis and treating with pharmaceutical drugs. Unfortunately, most drugs do not treat the underlying cause of the illness; they generally treat the symptoms.

A holistic practitioner will utilize all therapies available to them including prescription medications, as well as diet and nutritional approaches. Often times a change in diet and/or nutritional approach will minimize the use of drug therapies.
