WHAT IS COMPLIMENTARY, ALTERNATIVE AND HOLISTIC MEDICINE?

NATURAL HEALTH is defined by the way we build and maintain our health through our environment, nutrition, and daily activities. Through these practices we can promote our body's inherent ability to heal. A Natural Medicine Practitioner will consider the patient as a whole, analyzing physical, environmental, nutritional and emotional factors, as well as life style. By utilizing all the resources of holistic medicine, including ayurvedic and traditional oriental diagnosis, scientific natural nutrition, needle stimulation (Chim Theory), acupressure, and massage with non mechanical devices, in addition to patient education and self care, people can achieve their individual health goals.

HOLISTIC HEALTH is a philosophy of well-being that considers the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of life as closely interconnected. It attempts to cure all three aspects and to promote wholeness and balance in the individual. Holistic health is an approach to life as an ongoing process. The term holistic health refers to using some form of natural therapy that does not include conventional medicine.

HOLISTIC MEDICINE concentrates on the unification of the mind and body, treating the person as a whole, as opposed to individual organs, tissues, joints and bones. Holistic practitioners may utilize all resources of holistic medicine while working with the patient. The importance of self care and preventing illness is stressed by practitioners.

COMPLIMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE practices have been used for thousands of years and have great potential through oriental or ayurvedic diagnosis, for reducing the symptoms and complications of disease. Complementary and alternative medicine is a diverse group of medical systems, practices and products that are not considered to be part of conventional medicine. While conventional medicine is often seen to focus on biological aspects of disease, complementary and alternative health care is a more comprehensive approach to health and natural healing. Complementary Medicine such as TKM and Chim Theory is used concurrently with conventional medicine, except in cases of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy treatments. The health outcomes of complementary and alternative practices and services are often broad, and include quality of life as well as clinical improvements.

NATURAL MEDICINE DATABASE is a scientific, comprehensive, up to date curriculum providing clinically relevant information and safety concerns set forth by the database guidelines. The practitioner must practice under the guidelines of the scientific botanical and mineral database.
