Conventional medical training teaches the methods required to accurately diagnose a medical condition, but the treatment centers on prescribing medications that are mostly symptomatic. These medications do not address the underlying cause of your illness. Nor do they seek to improve your overall level of health.
A holistic approach recognizes that your health is determined by a complex interaction of physical, psychological, genetic, environmental and social factors. To treat a disease or promote good health your Holistic Doctor treats you as a whole person by considering all of these factors.
Our practitioner’s may use any variety of natural healing suggestions to work in partnership with an individual toward greater health, wholeness, balance and integration. This approach to health recognizes the patient as a whole person, not just a disease or a collection of symptoms. In the course of treatment, our holistic medical practitioners will address a patient’s emotional dimensions as well as the nutritional, environmental and lifestyle factors that may contribute to an illness.
At The Medical Sanctuary treatments are highly individualized. You will benefit from a comprehensive and integrative approach. We take the time to assess your complete medical history, your current health concerns and the factors that impact on your wellbeing. Our holistic doctors have an extensive knowledge and understanding of the whole body, including the psychological, nutritional, and physiological influences on your health.
Nutritional medicine offers a far more proactive approach to health care. Optimal nutrition can reduce your risk of developing chronic, degenerative conditions such as arthritis, neurological decline, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
When a body becomes ill, nutritional medicine calls for higher, therapeutic doses of basic nutrients to address illnesses and disorders. It is effective in addressing diseases of deficiency that may be caused by poor diet or extreme environmental factors. Because this method uses substances vital to a body’s well being, nutritional medicine is well received by the body.
The Medical Sanctuary
Our practice is committed to providing you with the highest quality health care. We have created a relaxed and comfortable environment where we can address your individual health needs. At your first visit conventional physical examinations, pathology tests and any other required tests are performed or organised. From there a treatment plan to address both your presenting symptoms and the cause of the imbalance in your body is commenced.
The individual recommendations made are explained to you and information is provided to help you understand your specific condition. Treatment often involves dietary & lifestyle advice along with nutritional or herbal supplementation. Conventional medication may also be considered if it is appropriate. This is fully discussed at the time so you can make an informed choice. This also includes information on minimizing the side effects of some medication if possible.
