What is a Holistic Practitioner?
It has been estimated that 90% of the chronic diseases that plague people and our pets may start in the gut.
Food is environmental exposure on the inside.
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. ~Hippocrates
The simple answer is that the holistic practitioner looks at the whole patient including the mind, body and environment. Traditional western, or modern, medicine focuses on symptoms, diagnosis and disease separating these from the whole. The holistic approach looks at the whole, attempting to restore balance and assist the body in doing what it does best, heal itself.
In my practice, my focus for your pet will include lifestyle with a large emphasis on nutrition. I will use diet, nutritional and herbal supplements and help you remove as many environmental healing obstacles.
I examine all information from your veterinarian and look for common root causes for what may appear to be unrelated symptoms. The focus of therapy will be on that root cause while improving comfort.
