Holistic medicine looks at the body as a whole and utilizes a wide variety of healing options to reach optimal wellness.
There is a common misconception that a practitioner who uses holistic medicine doesn’t utilize conventional medicine. In reality, however, they look to all avenues and the whole of the person to achieve optimal wellness and health. Here at Boutique Wellness in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, we understand that every person is different and finding the solution to an issue means not casting anything aside.
Holistic medicine is an approach we appreciate because we believe that wellness does not relate only to the body, but it is also affected by your emotions, spirit, and mind. As advocates for functional medicine, we look for the root cause of the problem rather than prescribe medication based only on symptom relief. For example, our techniques for stress management and pain management are intended to resolve these issues.
When you visit our clinic, licensed clinical pharmacist Mary Ann Coffey, R.Ph., CCN will take the time to get to know you and learn about those ailments and other concerns that aren’t allowing you to enjoy life at its fullest. We then discuss a personalized wellness plan based on what is causing your issues. Holistic medicine can include such treatments as anti-aging, dealing with drug-induced nutrient deficiencies, hormone replacement therapy, mindfulness exercises and guided meditation, nutritional therapy, herbal remedies, optimized metabolism, thyroid health, and more.
