It seems that when it comes to our health, we can always do more. And often we rely on others to direct us and hold us accountable when really we need to step up and take on the work required to be the healthiest people we can be.
When paired with the right program and doctor support you can go far. And when it comes to Integrative Holistic Medicine, we can finally begin to understand how much more productive these natural, proactive, and comprehensive methods are than the traditional healthcare system we are used to today.
The holistic approach is for the individual because let’s face it, while we have many similarities, we are all very different and need plans that focus on our individual needs. So when it comes to your health, and getting the most out of it, here are a few reasons why holistic medicine is for you.
The focus is on more than just our physical appearance
I remember a time in my life, when losing weight had nothing to do with maintaining a well-balanced diet and exercise regimen. I was killing myself at the gym and eating all the wrong foods. I was at my thinnest weight and appeared healthy, but in actuality was nowhere close. My energy level was at an all-time low and my doctor just checked my weight and pulse, prescribed me medication, and sent me on my way and was on to the next patient.
This was not the way I wanted to live. I wanted a productive program that was more natural and involved, and I wanted to have a positive relationship with my doctor, who put more time into getting to the root of my health problems, not just covering them up with the latest prescription. Integrative holistic medicine just made more sense for the long-term results I was looking for.
The goal is a whole approach to healthy living
When we are looking for a way to solve our health problems with more permanent results, and not just cover up the symptoms, then it’s time to look into a more preventative approach to your health. It wasn’t until I found that my mind was as important as my physical strength, and my personal beliefs played a huge role in my health, that I finally understood why the natural remedies were making a difference in how I thought and felt.
Open up to your doctor
It is important to be honest with ourselves and our doctor when beginning a new approach to our overall health. With integrative holistic medicine, it is all about being proactive and honest in our methods, and to taking responsibility for all aspects of our own persons.
At the Centre for Vibrant Health and Wellness, this approach to medicine is taken very seriously because they know it works, but only when we get involved 100%. Changing our lives for the better is a huge challenge, but it can be done through integrative holistic medicine.
