A Holistic Philosophy
The body and spirit are part of an integrated whole.
These two aspects of us cannot be separated so they are treated together, ensuring you feel better on every level.
We have an innate, natural healing ability.
We can tap this healing force and remove any blockages that are preventing you from accessing it.
Address the underlying cause as well as the outward symptoms.
By addressing both we can improve your current symptoms as well as reduce the likelihood that they will re-occur in the future.
Treatments are more effective when they are tailored to the individual.
Treatments are much more effective when they take into account your specific group of symptoms as well as your unique genetic constitution.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Simply put, it is so much more effective to promote health and wellness than it is to treat disease. Preventive care can correct imbalances in their early stages, before they have time to advance and take root, and improve your overall level of wellness so that you are more resilient to disease.
Giving care is just as important as having good technical and diagnostic skills.
Care is the most essential component of all good medicine.
Treatments and therapies that are non-invasive and low risk should be used first.
More is not necessarily better. Safe and gentle treatments that encourage and assist your innate healing ability are often the most effective.
Symptoms may be part of the body's healing strategy and are not always pathological.
Symptoms reflect your body's instinctive attempts to return to health and balance, strategies that can be very successful at times. Suppressing or neutralizing them is not always the most effective course of action.
An educated patient is an empowered patient.
Understanding the underlying causes of your condition empowers you to participate in your own healing process. Making smaller, deeper shifts in things like diet and lifestyle can result in dramatic shifts in your health, especially over time.
Healing is always possible, even when a cure is not.
This is the basis of palliative and managed care, treatments that focus on managing symptoms or slowing their progression. Periodic treatments can be very effective in improving your quality of life, even with advanced or chronic conditions.
We are all different, in fact we are unique.
By addressing your specific set of symptoms and individual genetic constitution we can tailor a targeted treatment plan that is as unique as you.
