Do you know what the word “holistic” means?It means exactly what it sounds like- “Whole”.
Holistic medicine means treating the body as a “Whole” as opposed to only separate systems.
We see the body as an amazing interconnected network of pathways, systems and energetics.
One system can be connected to another seemingly unconnected system, in various ways.
An example of this, is when people have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) where we see a stress response wreak havoc on the digestive system causing bouts of diarrhea and constipation for what seems like no reason.
There is a reason for this and you will most often see a flare-up during periods of high stress in your life.In Chinese Medicine ,we acknowledge many interconnected symptoms that may not be completely obvious.
Which is why our patients sometimes experience better sleep quality, less hot flashes, better bowel movements, decreased anxiety/irritability or increased energy,
even when our treatments are focused on body pain!Some people are very surprised at how the body can resolve many different ailments all on its own, once the ‘Root” of an issue is addressed!
