Holistic Medicine is an approach to treat a condition, but to also treat the body as a whole. Many conditions are related to other happenings in the body. Ear infection can be caused by allergy, food sensitivity, or liver disease. If you were to just treat the symptoms and ignore the root cause, you’d never fully address the problem.
The holistic prevention surveys the situation and tries to determine the cause of the problem being presented. Once the root cause is found remedied, the condition disappears.
The body works in harmony and when this is disturbed, disease process emerges. To blindly treat a condition with potentially harsh drugs adds to the problem. Once harmony is restored, the body returns to health.
