The goal of Nutritional and Holistic Medicine, as with traditional medicine, is to identify and treat dysfunction of the body and its organ systems.
While traditional medicine treats disease that is already obvious, Nutritional and Holistic Medicine not only looks for the obvious, but also the subtle underlying symptoms and patterns in the function of a particular organ or system. A simple analogy is Nutritional and Holistic Medicine looks for the smoke in addressing a problem while traditional medicine typically comes into play once the smoke has already erupted into flames.
In order to detect subtle problems at the cellular level and determine probability of potential disease, Nutritional and Holistic Medicine utilizes leading edge detection tests.
Once the underlying causes have been uncovered, a treatment plan is developed for the individual using botanical herbs, nutriceuticals (vitamins, minerals & enzymes), diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes.
Early and accurate detection of dysfunctional and potential trends allows you to achieve not only an acceptable quality of life, but also an optimum quality of life.
