Holistic Medicine Q & A

CoraMed Healthcare

How can holistic medicine help me?

Many ailments can be treated with medication, but prescription drugs don’t always get to the root of the health issue. Holistic medicine incorporates the belief that if you keep your body in balance, it has the ability to heal itself.

As a holistic practitioner, Dr. Costello evaluates your diet, stress levels, mental health, and physical activity levels. He can help you pinpoint imbalances in your body that may be causing your health problem. After a full evaluation, Dr. Costello can develop an individualized wellness plan to help your body regain its balance, so you feel energized and healthy.

What’s a wellness plan?

A customized wellness plan is basically a manual that helps you manage all aspects of your life. Dr. Costello’s customized wellness plans are a lot like journals. He gives you goals and timeframes for working on them. For instance, if you spend most of your time working and taking care of your family, Dr. Costello might discover that you’re not sleeping well and feel run down.

To help you get a better work-life balance, your wellness plan might include hiking alone once a week or taking a recreational art class once a month. These types of activities help you focus on you and get your mind, body, and spirit back into balance. When Dr. Costello gives you a wellness task to accomplish, even if it’s just 20 minutes on the treadmill, you’ll be more likely to do it. The ultimate goal of a wellness plan is to achieve balance and prevent future health problems.

Do I have to stop taking my medications?

No. A holistic wellness plan can certainly incorporate prescription medications. When you follow an individualized wellness plan, though, your need for certain types of medications may diminish.

If you’re overweight and just started taking Type II diabetes medications, for example, Dr. Costello may ask you to increase your physical activity. As long as you follow your wellness plan, you should start to lose weight. Getting your weight back on track may minimize the effects of Type II diabetes, lessening your need for medications.
