Improving Health Through Integrative Medicine

by Muller Lukacs SEO King

A lot of people often see things when it comes to black and white, and view health care in an identical manner. Either they rely on allopathic (using pharmaceuticals/ prescription drugs/ what most consider convention or traditional medicine) or Naturopathic (using what many references as alternative medicine, including herbal, homeopathic and other noninvasive procedures) medicine. Another possibility, which i think is far too often overlooked or ignored, is what's known by some as wellness treatment and by others as integrative medicine.

Integrative Medicine utilizes what it considers the "best" of both traditional Western medicine (what is taught in conventional Medical Schools) with alternative procedures, including non- Western medicine (including acupuncture and acupressure, homeopathy, herbal, Reiki, Flower Essences, nutraceutical (vitamins and other nutritional supplements), etc. A lot of the "good sense theory" behind this process is that while for many life threatening conditions, you need to immediately utilize the allopathic approach, for a number of other symptoms and conditions, it will be advantageous to stay away from the "quick fix" chemical/ pharmaceutical approach. This is particularly so for conditions like many colds and cold and flu-like symptoms, where, while pharmaceuticals might eliminate the outward symptoms quickly, there's often a "bounce-back" effect, because while symptoms are reduced and "masked," the underlying condition still exists. An alternative approach could be to endeavor to boost and enhance one's defense mechanisms by taking certain supplements and vitamins, and changing certain lifestyle behaviors.

In several parts of the world, physicians will often recommend homeopathy and homeopathic remedies for these kind of non-threatening ailments, simply because they work with building your body's ability to be stronger and more immune to the underlying causes. Many advocates of alternative/ integrative/ wellness philosophy, state they have observed that patients treated more holistically and without masking symptoms, often evidence far fewer repeat episodes of conditions such as for example low hormones causes. Personally, I'm a huge believer in the integrative approach, since it spent some time working so successfully with me. I have been lucky enough to possess fewer colds, etc., than the majority of the individuals around me for many, many years, since I started this approach.

I'm personally thankful to my personal physician for many years, the late Dr. Robert Atkins. Although Dr. Atkins was known by a lot more for his way of fat loss and diet than other activities, Atkins approached medical treatment from an integrative approach. He was always proud to mention he believed in his approach because he'd thousands of clinical cases to guide his theories (his patients' actual cases in his medical practice). Therefore, I'd suggest that anyone thinking about understanding more concerning the applicability of integrative medicine in specific situations, read Dr. Robert Atkins' book, "Dr. Atkins' Vita-Nutrient Solution." Here's to raised hearth!
