What is Holistic Medicine?

Why do you normally make an appointment to see a doctor? Allergy problems, asthma, maybe you have migraines or you just can't sleep? Holistic Health Coach, Senia Mae, says trying a different option, like a holistic approach, could erase all of these problems.  But here's the burning question -- what is holistic health? Senia Mae from Healing Insight stops by our studio to explain.

What is holistic medicine?  Holistic medicine looks at your whole body and connects all your symptoms, rather than just focusing on one single organ

Example: irritable bowel syndrome: rather than focusing on only your intestines,  look at how stress, diet, your energy, and sleep all affect your digestion and heal them all together

Why are people seeking holistic medicine now?  Ten years ago when Senia Mae started practicing, most people wanted the magic pill, but they got tired of the side effects and covering up the symptoms. Now most people understand that there’s so much they can do to feel better using diet, natural remedies, stress relief, etc. But it can be overwhelming to try wade through all the health information yourself, that’s where an experienced holistic health practitioner comes in.

How do you diagnose a problem?  At Healing Insight, they look at all the symptoms you present and diagnose patterns that show up in the body

  • You might be surprised how many questions they ask in an intake: digestion, sleep, energy, hormones, respiratory, temperature, diet
  • Possible patterns: Heat, Cold, Deficiency, Excess, Damp, Dry
  • Connect your headaches to your digestive issues to your low energy

What treatment methods are used?

o    Acupuncture
o    Herbal formulas/cleanse program/probiotics
o    Food therapy
o    Cupping
o    Home remedies

How long does it take to heal?  It’s not a magic pill or a quick fix. They are bringing the body back into a state of balance by reminding it how to function.  It depends on how out of balance you are. The general rule of thumb is one month of treatment for every year you’ve had the problem.

What can holistic medicine treat?

  • Irritable bowel and colitis
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Allergies and asthma
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Medical test results are “within normal range” but you still don’t feel good
