Holistic Care Q & A

What is holistic care?

Holistic care is a branch of medicine that considers all aspects of a person’s well-being, including their physical, mental, and spiritual health. It realizes that illnesses like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and anxiety aren’t the result of a single issue, but many.  

The functional medicine experts at Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, boast years of experience providing holistic care. By focusing on various aspects of wellness, including diet, exercise, sleep hygiene, and stress management, patients can achieve long-lasting, successful treatment outcomes.

What conditions does holistic care treat?

At Scottsdale Private Physicians, LLC, Dr. Wechsler and Dr. Bernstein use holistic care to manage difficult chronic conditions, including:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Food allergies

 

You might also benefit from holistic care if you have digestive issues like irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease.

What services does holistic care provide?

Following a comprehensive physical exam, a discussion of your symptoms, and a review of your medical history, the physicians at Scottsdale Private Physicians, can design a comprehensive, custom and holistic treatment plan designed to fit your personal needs.

Depending on your needs, that might involve a referral for acupuncture, IV nutrition, osteopathic manipulative therapy, or Bowen therapy and other allied alternative health care practitioners.

IV nutrition therapy treats issues like vitamin deficiencies and dehydration. Osteopathic manipulative therapy uses light pressure and manual techniques to align your bones and joints. Bowen Therapy is a manual treatment that stretches the fascia, a type of soft connective tissue.

Holistic treatments are drug-free, noninvasive, and require no downtime. They’re safe, effective, and much less risky.

Who can benefit from holistic care?

Anyone who wants to live a healthier, happier life can benefit from holistic care. Integrative treatments can minimize the symptoms of acute and chronic health problems, provide more energy, and slow the effects of the natural aging process.
