Holistic healing means taking an holistic approach when seeking treatment for imbalances and choosing to live a more balanced lifestyle. Dr. Beth Laughlin has expanded the Holistic Medical Clinic with the goal of providing quality care in a compassionate and friendly atmosphere. We can go for traditional medical treatment, or natural medicine, alternative medicine or holistic medicine. The mission of the AHMA is to support practitioners in their personal and professional development as healers, and to educate physicians about holistic medicine.
When seeking treatment from a holistic practitioner, it is important to ensure that they are properly qualified. Integrative medicine combines modern medicine with established approaches from around the world. A key feature is our Integrative Medicine Clinic, which provides a rich scope of services and educational opportunities rarely found in traditional medical centers.
Our nationally recognized practitioners include nurses, physicians, massage therapists and chiropractors with expertise in pediatrics, nutrition therapy, Chinese medicine and many other fields. To be accepted into a program for holistic studies or alternative healing, schools usually require at least a two-year degree or bachelor’s degree.
I think people will benefit greatly from that emerging awareness and acceptance of the benefits of alternative medicine. Many of my clients are from the ‘Christian school’ and use homeopathic medicine with great results on an ongoing basis. Holistic healers in the public sector such as hospitals, clinics, and universities make more than those who are self-employed.
Therapies within our holistic approach are supported by high-quality evidence and recognized by the National Institutes of Health. Many holistic physicians employ techniques found in Chinese herbal medicine as a basis of their therapy. At the Center for Natural & Integrative Medicine we strive to become your partner in health.
