Family Healthcare: The Holistic Way

Holistic healthcare is a model that encourages people to learn about how the mind, body, and spirit are interrelated.

Practitioners of holistic medicine focus more on the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms than on the symptoms themselves.

This comprehensive approach to good health applies many modalities and principles. Chiropractic, nutrition, massage therapy, preventative dentistry, naturopathic medicine, mental health support, and medical aesthetics all play a role in treating the “whole person” and helping them to attain true good health.

Begin early; children thrive with holistic care.

A good many of us, however, ignore symptoms of fatigue, stress, pain, weight gain or sleeplessness hoping they will improve or disappear.

Children and adolescents experience these discomforts too and often need help long before we, as caregivers, know they are suffering.

A chiropractic doctor will examine all aspects of a child’s or adult’s lifestyle to try to understand where the problem originates. For example, pain and poor posture often go together, particularly in adolescents who carry heavy backpacks and spend hours bent over an electronic device.

The solution may well lie in a chiropractic treatment and or a soothing massage. Even very young children respond well to these treatments and enjoy a sense of relaxed well-being afterward.

There are many causes of fatigue, stress, and sleeplessness. Sleep apnea, emotional turmoil, pain or nutritional deficiencies affect us all but, instead of medicating away the symptoms, a holistic approach would suggest counselling to help sort out emotional problems, or a dental consultation to address sleep apnea. Improved nutrition can support better sleep and acupuncture, massage and chiropractic treatments work well too.

Preventative care is the best care.

Regular dental checkups, practising oral hygiene, and embracing a healthy diet will ensure you and your kids have strong, healthy teeth.

Holistic prenatal care is excellent for both you and your baby. Nutrition counselling supports healthy moms and strong infant development, while massage therapy and chiropractic treatments keep you comfortable during pregnancy and afterward.

It is important to provide a variety of holistic health care options for your family so they can enjoy optimal good health and well being throughout their lives.
