What is Holistic Medicine?
Holistic medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses care of the whole person - body, mind, and spirit. The practice of holistic medicine integrates conventional and complementary therapies to promote optimal health and prevent and treat disease by addressing contributing factors.
In practice, this means that each person is seen as a unique individual, rather than an example of a particular disease. Disease is understood to be the result of physical, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental imbalance. Healing, therefore, takes place naturally when these aspects of life are brought into proper balance.
The role of the practitioner is as guide, mentor and role model; the patient must do the work - changing lifestyle, beliefs and old habits in order to facilitate healing. All appropriate methods may be used, from medication to meditation.
At WomanCare, we work to design a program of healing unique for each woman and her situation. We use herbs, botanicals, vitamins and healing through the human energy field. We also use medical technologies (and medical arts, such as surgery) when necessary. We, at WomanCare, have been privileged to facilitate tremendous growth and healing for well women, and for women facing surgery, during menopause, for permanent weight loss, for hormonal imbalances and PMS during pregnancy and birth, for infertility, for sexual function issues, for incontinence and other issues.
Vitamins & Supplements: Metagenics Products
Your body needs vitamins and minerals each day to remain healthy and function properly. A balanced diet normally supplies sufficient vitamins. Common causes of vitamin deficiencies are poor eating habits, alcohol abuse, emotional stress, the improper absorption of vitamins and minerals (usually due to liver or intestinal disorders), the intake of medicines that interfere with the ingestion of vitamins and lack of exposure to sunlight.
Even when maintaining a healthy diet, you still need to take vitamins. Proper food consumption should always be accompanied by vitamins and minerals. Vitamins and supplements can provide your body with the daily requirements needed for your optimal health.
Holistic Vitamin Supplementation:
Holistic. The term has become popular; because to live holistically, implies that one is living in balance-between mind, body and spirit. All three aspects of that balance are important to becoming whole. Each interacts with and affects the other. Mind, body and spirit are each affected directly by the nutrient levels in our bodies. Therefore, it is important to give your body the best building blocks possible.
Vitamins and supplements cannot replace a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, we often need help on the road to optimal health. Research has shown how stress, the environment and lower quality food all play a role in vitamin and mineral depletion. Vitamin supplements were created to prevent the diseases that occur when we do not have certain minimal levels of those vitamins in our bodies.
There is a multitude of vitamins and supplements with so many reasons to take each one that most people end up overwhelmed. More often that not, less is more. Excess amounts of certain supplements and vitamins can negate any health benefit they might have in lower amounts. Find the right balance. Take what you need, in the right amount, from a high quality source. Start with supplementing what your body needs to function properly, such as a high quality multi-vitamin with essential minerals. Add other supplements, as need, based on your individual health level. It is important to work with a health care professional that will support your journey to optimal health by guiding you in your individual needs and to ensure that the supplements you are taking are of high quality. The last thing you want is to spend money on a vitamin or supplement that does not actually contain what is needed or is in a form that your body cannot absorb.
Remember that you are trying to give your body the best building blocks it needs to stay healthy. Keep focused in your dedication toward optimal health.
