Different Types of Holistic Treatments

Written by: DrTonyWillcox | Apr 2, 2013

It’s unfortunate that many individuals begin to discover the different types of holistic medicine only if and after conventional medicine and treatments are unable to help them. It’s unfortunate not just because alternative medicine could have helped in the first place, but also because it can often be used together with conventional treatment to enhance the chance of a successful cure. Holistic principles by definition treat the root cause and improve physical and mental health, rather than just alleviating specific symptoms.

TCM includes a set of medicinal practices and concepts that date back to more than 2,000 years ago. It includes acupuncture, massages, diets, and herbal cures. Ayurveda is a form of traditional medicine, which makes use of natural elements to concoct medications. Homeopathy follows a rather interesting system that makes use of diluted quantities of a substance that can actually trigger a mild attack of the ailment in order to help the body understand how to fight back using its natural immunity and healing system.

Biofield, such as acupuncture and chiropractic, can be used for instant and short-term pain relief. Both acupuncturists and chiropractors are often called upon by patients who can find no way to get relief from back pain through conventional medication or surgery.  Energy therapy involves the use of crystals or magnets to affect the energy that surrounds and passes through the human body.
