Many people don't consider holistic medicine until they deal with chronic conditions that Western medicine can't resolve. However, alternative treatments, based on the energetic health of an individual, can improve what you think of as feeling "well." Holistic medicine is an integral part of any wellness plan, delivering benefits from increased energy to enhanced sleep. By working with a holistic physician in addition to your primary care physician, you can address your body’s energy along with other aspects of your health. Before your first appointment with a holistic medicine physician, get answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.

How is holistic medicine different from Western medicine?

Like Western medicine, treatment begins with diagnostic testing. The difference is that holistic medicine evaluates the body's energetic processes to determine deficiencies and accumulated toxins.

By detoxifying and clearing the energetic flow of the body, holistic medicine can treat chronic conditions and elevate your overall health.
