We’re so embedded in the medical healthcare system’s specificities that you may find the world of holistic healthcare daunting. It’s essential to understand the different types of holistic healthcare and look at these as options alongside the mainstream medical healthcare system.
1. Ayurvedic Medicine: An Ayurvedic Provider will create a treatment plan specifically designed for you. They’ll consider your unique physical and emotional makeup, your primary life force, and the balance between all three of these elements. The goal of treatment is to cleanse your body of undigested food, which can stay in your body and lead to illness. The cleansing process—called “panchakarma”— is designed to reduce your symptoms and restore harmony and balance.
2. Chiropractic Medicine: Chiropractors focus on the health and proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system. Many muscles and joint pains result when some component in this intricate system of muscles, joints, bones, tendons, and ligaments falls out of place. Whether you’re athletic or sit at a desk all day, anybody’s musculoskeletal system may experience a disturbance resulting from daily activity. Chiropractic medicine is based on the idea that a person’s overall health is linked to spinal alignment.
3. Homeopathic Medicine: Homeopathy begins with complete case taking by a registered Homeopath, which helps them understand how you feel mentally, emotionally, and physically. Homeopathy is based on the understanding that our every bit who we are, from unique idiosyncrasies to typical lifestyle stressors, can help the homeopath administer homeopathic medicine or remedies in small doses to enhance the whole of a person’s healing process. Homeopathic remedies are all-natural and leave no residual side effects.
4. Hypnotherapy: A Registered Hypnotherapist induce meditation-like states to bring your mind to ease and capitalize on your subconscious mind to bring changes in your behavior.
5. Integrative Physician: This is a hybrid between a general physician practicing conventional medicine and a holistic healthcare practitioner. An integrative Physician may have training in other modalities to aid their traditional practice, such as homeopathy, holistic nutrition, ayurvedic medicine, acupuncture, and more.
6. Osteopathic Medicine: Registered Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching, and massage to increase the mobility of joints. Relieving muscle tension. Osteopathy is based on the principle that individuals’ well-being depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.
7. Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy is primarily a talk-based therapy intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being, rather than prescribing pharmaceutical medicinal drugs. Registered Psychotherapists work with individuals, couples, and families in individual and group settings.
8. Reiki Energy Healing: Use energy healing that is transferred from the practitioner’s palm to the person and treats the person’s whole.
9. Wellness Coaching: Professionally trained coaches, through conversation with you, assess your current mental and emotional wellness to help you set achievable goals for overall healthier thinking, doing, and achieving.
Keep in mind that all the above-mentioned holistic healthcare options can work well alongside mainstream healthcare.
Holistic Health Care: The Treatment You Need When You Need It
In addition to understanding what types of holistic providers you can choose from, here are a few treatments plan options that you may not have thought of:
1. Educational Treatment: This could involve a course, webinars, reading material to help you understand options you have that may not know you have to make lifestyle changes to improve your illness, maintain your wellness, and for overall well-being.
2. Complementary Therapy: This is adding in any of the above or other holistic therapies and treatments that would complement any mainstream healthcare you are currently using or looking into for illness, maintaining your wellness, and overall well-being.
3. Combining Mainstream and Holistic Medicine: This involves working with your medical doctor and your holistic provider in collaboration for illness, maintaining your wellness and overall well-being.
While holistic medicine is a different field from mainstream healthcare, it is not without its specific requirements. Not just anyone can call themselves a holistic doctor or provider without having undergone the mandatories training and certification that coincide with their modality or treatment offerings.
However, under 50% of Canada’s holistic providers do not have full accreditation in their fields of so-called expertise.
