Holistic practitioners take time to get to know their patients on a very personal level. If asked to treat fertility issues, the practitioner will explore the patient’s reproductive system and also examine every aspect of the patient’s body and life. The practitioner will delve into lifestyle, diet, the amount of exercise in the patient’s schedule, as well as the mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of health.
Holistic medicine is also about helping people learn how to achieve balance and well-being in their lives. It is a non-invasive way to heal as it places emphasis on connecting the mind, body, and spirit.
Dating as far back as 5000 years ago in India and China, holistic health is based on the law of nature, which, as a whole, is made up of independent parts. For example, the earth is made up of many systems, involving air, land, water, plants, and animals. Similarly, people are made up of individual parts, which are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, and if one part is not working, everything else is affected. People can have physical reactions to emotional stimulants like anger, resulting in headaches or even arthritis.
The cause of many illnesses can be traced back to lifestyle. The body’s cells can only be reproduced with the materials available to them. If you consume dangerous toxins like alcohol, drugs, nicotine, sugar, or caffeine, lack exercise, nutritious foods, and self-esteem, all of this can add up to diminish the quality of your health.
Holistic health is always about moving forward to reach optimal levels of health and wellness, resulting in vitality and well-being, and more often than not, an enthusiasm to make a lifelong commitment to this practice.
Some fertility doctors direct their patients to holistic practitioners for treatments including acupuncture and herbal remedies. Speak to your doctor if you feel that you could benefit from holistic medicine.
