What is holistic medicine ?

 

At recore we offer patients a new and unique approach to health called holistic medicine. We do not treat diseases or symptoms, we treat the whole person. The patient’s symptoms are always considered to be caused of an underlying dysfunction that can be remedied by stimulating the body’s own regulatory forces.

Holistic medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. The practice at recore integrates both, conventional and alternative therapies to prevent and treat disease, and most importantly, to promote optimal health. This definition of health is defined as the unlimited and unimpeded free flow of life force energy through body, mind, and spirit. Holistic medicine includes analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, spiritual and lifestyle elements. Together with that we focus upon patient education and participation in the healing process. It is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions — in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to our philosophy, one can achieve optimal health by gaining proper balance in life.

The whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health. To do that we search for the root causes of the patient’s disease in order to give the body a chance to heal itself. This is why we give top priority to improving the patient’s general metabolism, together with detoxification, purification and the latest methods of immune – stimulation, as well as other stimulating therapies. For this reason, our doctors and therapists utilize ‘suppressive’ medicines only during times of emergency, and not for chronic care management, because this type of medicine is most effective in acute situations. As our patient, you are making an engagement to your health. It is important to note that all of our doctors have conventional medical degrees and specialized training in Biological Medicine , and in certain cases, conventional and holistic treatments will be integrated .

Our therapists are highly educated and trained in their treatment skills. Our treatment regime includes:

  • Patient education on lifestyle changes and self-care to promote wellness. This may include diet, exercise, psychotherapy, relationship and spiritual counseling, and more

  • Complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, osteopathic medicine, phytotherapy, myoreflex therapy, naturopathy, and others

  • Individualized nutritional support

  • Individualized orthomolecular medicine

  • If needed western medications

Optimal health is much more than the absence of sickness. It is the conscious pursuit of the highest qualities of the physical, environmental, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of the human experience.
