Integrative and Functional Medicine
Holistic primary care is a form of healing that considers the whole person -- body, mind, spirit, and emotions -- in the quest for optimal health and wellness. One can achieve optimal health -- the main goal of holistic primary care -- by gaining proper balance in life.
Our practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.
Our holistic doctors use all forms of health care, from conventional medication to alternative therapies, to treat a patient. When a person suffering from any health problem pays a visit to Gentle Wellness Center, instead of walking out solely with medications, our doctor will likely take a look at all the potential factors that may be causing the problem. Such as diet and sleep habits, stress and personal problems, and preferred spiritual practices. The treatment plan may involve drugs to relieve symptoms, but also lifestyle modifications to help prevent the problem from recurring.
Our practitioners use a variety of treatment techniques to help our patients take responsibility for their own well-being and achieve optimal health. Depending on the diagnosis, these may include:
• Patient education on lifestyle changes and self-care to promote wellness. This may include diet, exercise, psychotherapy, relationship and spiritual counseling, and more
• Complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, homeopathy, massage therapy, naturopathy, and others.
