What is Functional & Holistic HEALTH?

Functional Medicine: 

Medical practice or treatments that focus on optimal functioning of the body and its organs. A systems biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. 

 

Holistic Medicine: 

A form of healing that considers the whole person -- body, mind, spirit, and emotions -- in the quest for optimal health and wellness. In this way, if people have imbalances of these components in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health. It's a way of viewing the body as one interconnected system.

Would you agree that:

Your heart pumps blood everywhere in your body 

Your brain controls your heart

You feel pain & sensation everywhere because your nerves are everywhere

Your nerves are connected to your brain 

Your lymphatic vessels are located throughout your entire body

Your immune system is largely located in your gut 

Your gut produces more serotonin than your brain

 The same nerve from your brain to your heart innervates your gut

...much more...


HEALTH:  

The focus of the practitioner should be finding health, not focusing on medicine. While medicine has a function in healing, it is relied on too often in today's society. 

 

Whole Human Being is committed to evaluating you from this perspective.

 

The problem might not be exactly where you are experiencing symptoms. 

 

Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs), also known as chiropractic physicians, practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes a holistic patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling as well as therapeutic activities and rehabilitative exercises. DCs may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging, and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate. DCs undergo a rigorous education in the healing sciences, similar to that of medical doctors, which includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other health care providers.
