Holistic Health: Is it the answer to our healthcare crisis?

holistic medicineI am a Chinese medicine herbalist, acupuncturist, Registered Nurse, and Functional medicine practitioner – but most importantly, a health coach and cheerleader for you! I wear all of these hats at the same time to find the most holistic, effective treatment plan for you and your unique needs.

I like to call my practice “Functional Chinese Medicine” – using a 3,000 year old, ancient, mind-body medicine synergistically with a patient-centered, evidence-based practice for a truly effective holistic health model for chronic disease and prevention.

As with all forms of holistic treatment, Functional Chinese medicine begins with the theory that every human being has an innate resource of wisdom, strength, and health that can be tapped into at any moment. Acupuncture and meditation are ways of making contact with this incredible resource.

Holistic healthcare is one that focuses on:

  • The effects of the mind (beliefs, perceptions, attitudes) on the human body
  • The role that genetics and environment plays in health and disease
  • The relationship between emotional and physical health
  • The energetic processes that underlie physical and emotional imbalances

Have life circumstances caused you to feel alienated from this inner wisdom?

Mind-body medicine is a way to reconnect with ourselves and awaken to our full potential- acupuncture, meditation, yoga are all part of my personal journey to health. I like to empower my patients to take responsibility for their symptoms or imbalances as a way to find their road to optimal health and well-being.

Are you tired of going to your doctor and being offered a pill to suppress or alleviate your symptoms- often with unwanted side effects?

While mainstream healthcare is certainly warranted for acute and life-threatening conditions, it fails at truly offering a deep level of support to the millions of patients with chronic, stress-related issues like anxiety, insomnia, pain, hormone imbalances and digestive disorders.

By putting the responsibility and power in your hands through effective education, compassion and treatment- Functional Chinese medicine treats the root cause of your health conditions.

When we normally think of holistic medicine, we think of the connection between body, mind, and spirit.  I take into consideration the following in my clinic to see the whole picture:

  • The relationship between your beliefs and emotions
  • Physical imbalances, lab work, functional lab testing
  • Dietary habits/supplements/medications
  • Exercise & sleep habits
  • The degree to which you are engaged with and loving your work
  • Social support systems
  • Spiritual awareness

The beauty of holistic medicine is that it truly does account for your individual and unique makeup. Make an appointment for a free consultation and you will see how this holistic approach can help you!

Namaste,

      Each women is different in her response to hormone replacement therapy and her underlying imbalances causing menopausal symptoms – I would need to find out more information before I can suggest anything specifically. I would be happy to chat with you about you concerns and point you in the right direction- schedule a time that works for you (15-20min). Thanks, ReNee
