A HH counselor uses non-invasive healing methods that help the patient reach a state of balance and wellness. At the Center for Holistic Medicine we use many different therapeutic approaches including; mild hyperbaric oxygen, medical acupuncture, frequency specific microcurrent as well as traditional and functional medicine to treat a range of conditions from Autism Spectrum Disorders to Zinc deficiency.
Whereas the primary aim of a conventional doctor is to diagnose the patient’s illness by taking note of signs and symptoms like pain, swelling, rashes and so on, the first objective of a holistic practitioner is to find out as much as possible about the patient’s background – not just their medical history, but also their lifestyle, diet, mental outlook, ambitions, creative drive and so on. Disease – and vulnerability to infection etc.
It is almost impossible to design a double-blind study to find out whether combinations of those different elements: colon cleanse, kidney cleanse, liver/gallbladder cleanse, dietary supplements, exercise, meditation, exercise, massage, acupuncture, oxygen therapy, juicing, love, support, etc, really cures cancer because double-blind studies are designed only to determine whether one or few therapies work.
Students who earn a B.S. in Health Sciences with an integrative holistic medicine concentration may find positions in communities and medical systems that are opening holistic care centers, initiating patient-oriented practices and adding complementary methods to augment traditional care.
From physicians and nurses trained at the country’s most prestigious medical centers to our full spectrum of licensed and certified practitioners in allopathic and alternative medicine, the center’s specialists are at the forefront of integrative medicine.
