Major Difference....

Alternative Medicine is Holistic, Western Medicine is Reductionist

The Different Approach Of Alternative Medicine

The major difference between alternative medicine, or what I'll call holistic health, and Western medicine, is in approach. A Western doctor, or MD, sees his duty as searching out disease, diagnosing it, and treating it. If he does that correctly and effectively, he's done his job. Most often, this means the doctor prescribing a pharmaceutical drug or a surgical procedure to remedy the situation. The patients is passive in all of this

The Approach Of Holistic Practitioners

A holistic health practitioner sees his duty as an educator and a facilitator. He feels that the body can heal itself, and it doesn't necessarily need outside influences (drugs, surgery) to heal from an illness or to prevent an illness. In holistic health, the patient is an active participant. This is the best and the worst thing about holistic health! The patient is actively involved in the healing process. Everything you know about your body says that this is the right approach. It makes so much sense. That's the good part. The bad thing about this is that it is hard work for the patient

Change Your Lifestyle

In most cases, the patient must make changes to their lifestyle. Change your diet, do more exercise, stop using sugar, do these stretches, stop negative thoughts, meditate twice a day, etc. Making lifestyle changes is immensely difficult. The only time it's easy is when you are faced with a life-threatening disease. When you find out you have lung cancer, it's pretty easy to quit smoking. However, it's far too late by that time. Lifestyle changes need to come before the illness becomes manifest

Holism Versus Reductionism

Let's examine one of the big differences between holistic health and Western medicine: holism versus reductionism. This is a major shift in perspective. Taking a holistic perspective means that you cannot understand a single problem with a single part of the human body without looking at the whole person. We use the short-hand mind, body, spirit to refer to the whole person. This is not how a Western doctor is taught to see a patient. He sees the patient as the disease. This is an epileptic, it is not a whole person who has epilepsy. He feels that he can administer a drug or perform a surgery that will cure a person's liver without making any difference to the rest of the person. Of course, this is never possible, so when the inevitable complications arise, the Western doctor deals with those one at a time, often causing additional problems for the person, whether in body, mind or spirit

One Person Three Parts: Body, Mind & Spirit

Even those three parts of the person are treated by separate people in Western society. The body is the domain of the medical doctor. The mind is the domain of the psychiatrist. Spirit is left to the priest, rabbi or pastor. There is no overlap in roles, except for referrals from one to the other. In our bodies, of course, there is tremendous overlap. A loss of connection to God or the universe will cause no end of mental and physical problems. Mental stress causes many physical diseases, as we well know. Who can coordinate between these in the Western system? No one. Problems falling through the cracks between mind, body and spirit is a common failure of Western medicine. A holistic practitioner understands the interconnections between mind, body and spirit. They work on the connections, and, although the practitioner may not be an expert in all three, they focus on the overlaps rather than ignoring them

Conclusion

In my opinion, a holistic approach is better in almost every case for almost every person. Understanding the linkages between mind, body and spirit is essential to understanding how to stay well and how to heal. Western medicine can play a part within the scope of holistic health by offering emergency solutions to problems that arise quickly and need to be fixed immediately

"...The trick needed for self-healing is to increase one’s energy level, which can be difficult if one is experiencing health problems. As we age, blocks build up in the body due to tissue, ligament, muscle and bone adhesions as well as emotional trauma and also very important blockages are due to our repeated caricature-like body movements due to our particular personality expressions - and all become lodged in the body. Of course our identification with our thoughts, emotions and belief system are also major energy blocks, and one will need to deal with these first. I still think my technique described below will bring each block to the surface to be healed and dealt with, naturally in the order it needs to be addressed for one's system to gain the maximum amount of energy - awareness. So one doesn't have to decide what to do next, your wisdom can do it for you. All you have to do is surrender - easily said than done! The body will find a new path around the adhesions – you might not even know you have these blocks, but the new pathways won’t be optimal and eventually health problems will lodge into, around and behind the ..."  .... read more...

Alternative forms of medicine are growing in popularity as people try to find a more holistic approach to their health.

Types Of Alternative...

Types of alternative medicine are often confusing. Let's talk about functional medicine, antiaging medicine, holistic medicine and complementary medicine their differences and similarities

What's In A Name?

Medical terminology is confounding to the average person, and easily misunderstood. Some of it is used by doctors FOR doctors, and much is not explained to the average person.

With that said, let's look at some of these terms (in plain English) what they are really referring to, and why these new concepts are changing the way you will manage your health in the near future.

Types of alternative medicine have actually been around for thousands of years. They are time tested and they work, however with the advent of the immensely profitable pharmaceutical industry, these methods were pushed aside by the medical establishment. However they are currently making a comeback and becoming more popular, because they actually work!

Antiaging Medicine

Antiaging medicine is simply the intervention of medical science using all available medical technologies to delay, stop, or in some cases reverse some aspects of the aging process. The most important effect of antiaging medicine is prevention of disease and maintenance of good health!

Complementary Alternative Medicine

This term refers to a combination of conventional medical treatments and therapies, as well as alternative medical therapies. It uses the best of both approaches, usually starting with the least invasive, least toxic treatments. If these do not work to solve the problem, then more aggressive medical therapies are tried.

This approach is sometime referred to as “CAM” for short. Treatment combinations for example might be something like drug therapy combined with acupuncture, chemotherapy supported by nutrition, or the use of biofeedback in conjunction with medication to treat mental illness.

Complementary alternative medicine includes types of alternative medicine from conventional to holistic, functional, and antiaging medicine, in attempting to restore health to the patient.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is a term you will be hearing a lot more in the near future. In simple terms it is the attempt by a health practitioner to treat medical problems at their root cause rather than just treating the symptoms.

There are no “functional medicine doctors,” only doctors that use functional medicine as their primary approach or as part of the various medical therapies they use to treat their patients.

Functional medicine can involve using either conventional approaches or alternative ones, but tends to be focused on alternative therapies, because they are most often concerned with finding the root of health problems and fixing them. Bringing the body into balance is another component of functional medicine.

The philosophy behind functional medicine is a belief that disease results from imbalances in the body's systems, which when rebalanced brings the person back to good health.

Holistic Medicine

Holistic medicine has become a household word. It is one of the most well known types of alternative medicine, and recognizes that illness has both a physical, mental, and emotional component. You treat the whole person rather than simply treat the symptoms of disease.

If a person has a heart condition they are suffering from you can't just treat the heart with drugs or surgery. You need to decrease that person's stress improve their diet, and also address things in their life like relationships and environment.

Part of the reasons why conventional medicine is reluctant to embrace holistic medicine is that medical treatment is based upon which treatment the doctor can bill your insurance company for, and also what your insurance is willing to cover.

They also fear being pushed aside by new trends and unconventional approaches to health which they don't understand and were not educated to provide. It is in part fear of being made irrelevant that causes them to be hostile to holistic medicine.

The Winds of Change

If all of the above forms of medical treatment sound alike, it's because they are. They share a common philosophy which is that problems should be treated at their root cause, with a combination of therapies that are as safe, natural, and effective as possible.

Also, all of these forms of medicine can be components of an antiaging medicine approach. The emphasis in antiaging being the prevention of disease!

Types of alternative medicine all share this characteristic because it makes logical sense, is effective, and also prevents disease as well as alleviating it.

The bottom line is that medicine and health care is changing. Politicians insist of trying to legislate solutions to what they call our health care crisis, but these efforts will only make the problems worse.

What IS happening is that the way doctors treat their patients is evolving out of necessity because many more physicians realize the old approaches of drugs and surgery as the answer to every medical problem no longer appropriate.

Types of alternative medicine will eventually become the standard as we move toward a more cost effective, enlightened, and patient centered health care system.

"...Since virtually all pain is due to inflammation, it is particularly dangerous when that inflammation in the human body is stealth enough that it does not cause pain.

Why?

Because silent inflammation in the human body mostly means silent damage.

When your body is being damaged cell by cell and you don't even know it, that is, to say the least, not a good thing!

It's one thing when you have a chance to fight back against something that seeks to destroy your body. But when you don't even know the enemy is within you, how can you fight back?

This is precisely the danger of silent inflammation in the human body.

The good news is that you can reduce the level of silent inflammation...."   read more....

However when insufficient mineral consumption is in the diet, the body is forced to rob Peter (other body fluids) to pay Paul (the blood). In doing so, it removes crucial minerals, such as calcium, from the saliva, spinal fluids, kidneys, liver, etc., in order to maintain the blood at pH 7.4. This causes the de-mineralized fluids and organs to become acidic and therefore anaerobic, thus inducing not only cancer, but a host of other degenerative diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, lupus, etc..
