Holistic medicine attempts to combine not only the body/mind/spirit into one but also the idea that multiple symptoms are probably the result of one or two issues. At Bio Energy Medical Center, we extend that Holism to include the use of all elements available to healing—whether it be herbs, medications, diet, nutrients, exercise, acupuncture, detox programs, meditation, or lifestyle changes.
We are always looking at the underlying cause of a patient’s symptoms. Using advanced biochemical testing of blood, urine, stool, hair, and saliva along with genomic testing where indicated, we start with a much more complete view of a person’s health. Is that hypertension a simple matter of genetics or is it a result of metabolic syndrome? Knowing that answer makes a big difference in treatment options. This approach is particularly important with any chronic conditions. Understanding the underlying cause(s) gives a patient the opportunity to change and heal.
Dr. Neuenschwander does prescribe medications where indicated. The idea is to treat the underlying condition so that medications are not needed. Most medications simply mask the symptom, rather than treating its cause. Heart disease is caused by inflammatory injury to the lining of the arteries leading to the heart, and not form a lack of a statin drug. Understanding that diet, lifestyle changes, and nutrients can make a significant change in that inflammatory injury will result in the chance for a better outcome.
So many patients with these syndromes have over activation of their immune systems and dysfunction of energy production. Part of the holistic approach is to identify the cause of that over activation and energy dysfunction. Is it a hormonal issue? A chronic stealth infection? A nutritional issue? A reaction to the diet? The result of an environmental toxin? All of these questions can be answered with this approach.
