What Is Holistic Medicine?

Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person.

Science and modern technology have progressed so far in the way how we can compartmentalise our bodies to the individual system, organ, tissue, cell, and beyond. There are specialists that can study not only a single cell but even a single protein within the system. It is quite remarkable what scientists can do nowadays.

The only problem with that is that the more we focus on details the more difficult it is to see the bigger picture. We know that no protein, cell, organ, or system in the body works in isolation. Even though all of them have a specific role in our organism, they constantly communicate with each other and work in complete synergy.

If someone gets anxiety, migraines, asthma, and back pain they will be referred to four different specialists who will look at each issue in isolation from each other. Each specialist will treat their own body part.

But all these ailments are happening in the same body and, most importantly in a particular human being and it is important to view this human being as a whole in order to understand what is happening to that person. Why is this person sick? What is his body trying to tell us by expressing these symptoms? What was happening in this person’s life before he got sick? How is he feeling emotionally? What ailments did his parents and grandparents have?

These are only a few questions out of many a holistic health practitioner would ask a client to understand why this person got sick. We want to put all the jigsaw pieces together to see the whole picture. We want to learn about your personality, about all the things that make you YOU, about your hobbies, lifestyle, how you respond to stress and what makes you happy.

In holistic medicine, we recognise that our emotions are connected to our physical aches and pains. An unresolved upset or trauma in the past can be the reason why someone develops a particular physical condition a few years down the line.

All your symptoms past and present on all levels: spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical are important to us as homeopaths on our mission to help you feel better.

We work together with you to find and put all the jigsaw pieces together, so you can be free of pain and live your life to its full potential.
