Holistic Medicine Traditional Medicine. Traditional medicine is good at providing instant relief from pain and other symptoms, and it should be the first choice for serious matters involving surgery. However, holistic medicine strikes at the root cause of the ailment and is more focused on preventive care, healthy living, and fitness. Together, the two types of medicine can be used to offer maximum treatment for a condition.

Some of the advantages of holistic medicine include:
Holistic Medicine Traditional Medicine Most forms of holistic medicine, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda, have been around for thousands of years and are quite effective if the practitioner is well-trained and experienced. If holistic medicine is able to offer a cure for a disease, it will likely be permanent because the treatment offered helps restore the body back to its normal condition, rather than just injecting drugs that make the symptoms go away without treating the root cause.
For example, depression and stress can be treated by acupuncture combined with mind-body therapy and dietary therapy. The acupuncture offers immediate physical relief in the form of increased energy and a sense of well-being, while the other treatments allow the patient to get a good night’s sleep and eat healthily. The end result is a dramatic and permanent improvement in physical and mental health, which cures the stress and depression permanently.
