WHAT IS...
Holistic
health care and
energy medicine?
 
     Holistic healing is defined in Webster’s dictionary as "relating to or concerned with complete systems, rather than the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts...a medicine that attempts to treat both mind and body…". Holistic healing is any healing that works on the "whole" person. It is not a "cure" for an ailment, but an approach that acknowledges and incorporates the mind, body, and spirit as a way to wellness, acknowledging all three as vital and interconnected in order to maintain or regain health.
The American Heritage Dictionary defines mental health as "a state of emotional and psychological well
being in which an individual is able to use his or her cognitive emotional capabilities, function in society, and meet the ordinary demands of everyday life.
    
Alternative Therapy for the mind body and spirit    
     Energy medicine is a form of holistic healing that dates back thousands of years. The premise of energy work is that there is an energy system in the body, much like the circulatory system, that circulates "life force energy" or "chi" through the meridians and Chakras. The treatment then, is to realign, replenish or clear the energy system so that energy can flow freely.
 
Nutrition and lifestyle counseling?
 
 
 
  • Research often results in conflicting data (20,000 different diets and nutritional advice)
  • Many times a segment of the study is reported and emphasized, creating sensational headlines
  • Some people prefer a strictly medical approach to nutrition, while others favor a more holistic perspective that includes herbs and supplements.
  • Often those who differ in opinion, voice the differences publicly, creating confusion for those who have minimal understanding of nutrition.
 
 
Nutritional Counseling
 
     Nutrition should be used to build health rather than treat illness. We do not prescribe a nutrient here and a nutrient there for any given ache or pain. We need to feed the body whatever raw materials it needs to create balance and efficiency at all levels at the same time - at the cellular, tissue, organ, glandular and systemic levels.
 
  • Take responsibility for your own health and well being
  • Learn to make better food choices based on your individual needs and health
