What Dr. Taylor can say in an interview on Holistic Medicine:

As opposed to traditional, Western medicine, a holistic approach is one that seeks to treat not only the symptoms or disease, but takes into consideration the whole person—the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing of their patients, before recommending treatment. A holistic practitioner also seeks to prevent illness in the first place, by closely examining all aspects of their patients’ lifestyle: diet, exercise, sleep, etc., to optimize their health.

Benefits of Holistic Medicine

Benefits of holistic medicine can be found in everything from hormone therapy to weight loss. This is achieved by including naturopathy in their healthcare routine. The underlying goal is to help people understand that their body wants to be healthy, and contains a natural ability to heal itself. Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle can make it difficult for the body to heal itself. Naturopathic and holistic healing allows doctors to guide their patients into identifying the factors that prevent healing. Consider the following benefits of holistic treatment and naturopathic medicine.

Dealing With Disease

Combined with conventional medicine, holistic treatment not only allows the doctor to treat disease, it also allows him or her to direct effort and energy towards preventing it. They will pinpoint the cause(s) of their disease/ailment, developing a care plan that will address all of the factors that are negatively affecting their patient’s health. This means that your doctor will investigate a patient’s diet, lifestyle choices, environment, and genetics, knowing that these factors work together to either improve or worsen a person’s health.

Individualized Treatment

Treatment plans that are individualized for every patient is best. This is because everyone is different, and their response to treatment is different. Once the doctor has discovered the underlying cause of their patient’s health concerns, they create a plan that increases the natural healing ability. Patients will find themselves encouraged to become involved in the development of their own treatment plan. Patient involvement has been shown to increase the efficacy of the treatment. While understanding that some diseases still require the help of conventional medicine, using naturopathy to improve the body’s healing powers can address an incredible array of diseases and health concerns.
