more than our medical conditions. Holistic Medicine
addresses the whole person—body, mind, and
spirit—to treat and prevent disease. It also seeks to
empower the patient to create a condition of optimal
health. Holistic physicians embrace a variety of safe,
effective options in diagnosis and treatment, including
education for lifestyle changes and self-care;
complementary modalities; and conventional drugs and
surgery. We encourage patient autonomy and seek to evoke
the patient's own healing capabilities.
