For more than a decade, Gundersen has offered many alternative or complementary medical services for patients. While preventing illness is important, Holistic Health focuses on reaching higher levels of wellness. In looking for other options, people are turning back to the holistic approach to health and healing. Because many health professionals do not diagnose or treat disease, we honor all health professionals in this work, and you will notice that we intentionally put health first — in front of medicine — to emphasize our focus on health first.
Far more expensive drugs that come with greater risks and more side effects have failed to do as well in altering the trajectory of the disease and Holistic Medicine providers have been stressing on the use of natural herbal holistic medicine supplements and minerals.
Our vision of the holistic leader means somebody who acknowledges and honours their own complexity, who recognises that we all co-create our world, and who takes responsibility for their own part in this process. Naturopathic medicine is a form of alternative medicine based in special vital energy that guides bodily processes such as metabolism, reproduction, growth and adaptation seeking prevention or improvement of health conditions.
Optimal health is the primary goal of holistic medical practice, deriving from the conscious pursuit of the highest level of functioning and balance of the physical, environmental, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of human experience.
At the Center for Holistic Medicine we use many different therapeutic approaches including; mild hyperbaric oxygen, medical acupuncture, frequency specific microcurrent as well as traditional and functional medicine to treat a range of conditions from Autism Spectrum Disorders to Zinc deficiency.
