Integrative Healthcare emphasizes looking at a person holistically, meaning that a person’s mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health is taken into account when finding causes of imbalance in the body. The integrative approach incorporates treating the whole person instead of just looking at one symptom or condition. It is believed that in order to create balance within the body, all of these aspects must be looked at. One condition can lead to overcompensation within other body systems, which can lead to multiple different conditions and dysfunction within the body. Integrative Healthcare is a specific approach to care, which brings complementary and conventional treatments to address an individual’s health and wellness needs.
Integrative Healthcare has been considered a “newer” form of medicine, however, many of the techniques have been practiced for years, but the practices have not yet been heavily introduced into modern, Western medicine techniques. There are several different modalities within Integrative Healthcare including but not limited to, acupuncture, acupressure, chiropractic, chiropractic neurology, functional medicine, and nutrition.
What this means for our office
In our office, we use Integrative Healthcare techniques to find imbalances within your body. We focus on the function of the brain, using Chiropractic Neurology to find the weak pathways within your brain. By finding these weak pathways, we are able to connect your brain and body so that the brain is able to communicate more efficiently and lessen the symptoms that you may be experiencing. The Integrative Health approach allows us to provide unique and specialized care for each patient. Since no two people or bodies are the same, it is important that we are able to understand how different imbalances effect each person in order to improve your condition and healing process.
As soon as one of our core systems gets damaged in any way, it can throw off the balance of other bodily functions in order to compensate. If you get stressed, it has an impact on your whole body, such as your digestive system and how you process foods, it affects your nervous system and immune system functions, weakening these processes in order to adapt to these stress levels. This is why we use adjustments, nutrition, and brain based therapies. We target all of these systems simultaneously to make maximum impact on the problem.
Recovery takes work, and during this time your body will be working hard in order to heal. This process may make you feel more tired or it may seem that you are not getting better as quickly as you had hoped and there is more that you could be doing. It is important to remember that this process does take time and each bit of effort that is put into your healing is making positive changes within your body. Changes within your lifestyle will be made, and this can be difficult. Our goal is to create a happy, healthy lifestyle that you can easily manage on your own.
