Holistic Medicine

Many of the alternative and natural therapies deal with the mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of health, in addition to the physical body. This is where natural treatments have a huge benefit for women with Endometriosis - because this disease affects the whole person, not just the body.

The name ‘Holistic Medicine’ comes from the connection between mind and body. Holistic practitioners treat the whole person as opposed to the individual organs where symptoms occur.

What is alternative and natural medicine?

Alternative medicine is made up of a rich variety of techniques and medical systems that for the most part, are still unfamiliar to the majority of the public.  They are therefore, an ‘alternative’ to what most people are using when they need health care.

Much of what is labelled alternative medicine comes from other cultures or from ancient healing traditions.  The use of herbs as medicine is an ancient practise found all over the world.  Acupuncture comes specifically from ancient China and has been documented as being in use as early as 2697 B.C.

The World Health Organisation estimates that between 65 and 80 percent of the world’s population rely on traditional medicine as their primary form of health care.

What is the Difference between Alternative and Conventional Medicine?

Generally speaking, most high quality alternative medicine is founded on six core principles and practises that differ from the principles and historical practises of conventional medicine.

The main differences are:

  • The healing power of nature first, with technique and technology second
  • Patient centred rather than physician centred
  • Do no harm - many alternative medical systems are rooted in the principle of ‘always use the least drastic harmful therapies first’.  This means that alternative medical providers, in general, choose techniques and therapies which are the least invasive or harmful to get the desired result 
  • Results generally take longer - but this ensures long term health and not a quick fix it 
  • Use of natural and whole substances
  • Higher standard of health
  • The whole area of alternative medicine is becoming more main-stream in western society as a means for people to take care of their health, for reasons including:
  • The realisation that, contrary to previously held beliefs, conventional medicine (the medicine of antibiotics, surgery, chemotherapy etc.) cannot solve all of societies health problems  
  • The growing acceptance that health is more than just ‘the absence of disease’ and involves more that just the physical body 
  • The increasing body of scientific research, as well as public awareness, that many alternative medical treatments are more effective, more economical, and less invasive and less harmful than conventional medical treatments
