Holistic Medicine in Reno, NV
There are a number of therapies and treatment approaches that fall under the banner of holistic medicine. So rather than just recommending a method of treatment for a specific set of symptoms, a holistic medicine practitioner will work with you to identify the underlying causes and issues that may be causing your symptoms and impacting your overall health and quality of life. You are probably already familiar with some of the most common therapies under the holistic health umbrella:
- Diet and lifestyle modifications
- Herbal Medicine
- Vitamin and mineral supplementation
- Physical fitness and exercise plans
As a practice, holistic medicine looks at the whole person rather than just at the symptoms to design an adequate treatment plan. Holistic medicine can work together with traditional medical treatments for problems like chronic pain, headaches, digestive problems, and a number of other common health issues to offer symptom relief and help improve your quality of life.
Holistic medicine can combine elements of both alternative and traditional medical therapies, and also aims to promote health and wellness and prevention in addition to addressing existing health issues.
