Are you or a loved one struggling with an illness or chronic pain and don’t feel as if you’re getting any better by utilizing traditional western medicine practices? If so, you may be interested in a variety of alternative medicine practices provided by our team here at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center. Instead of masking your symptoms with unnatural medicine and chemicals, we take a more holistic and balanced approach to identify any underlying causes and address them to replenish you both from a physical and spiritual perspective.
What is Alternative Medicine?
Alternative medicine is simply a method of using treatments methods such as chiropractic care, acupuncture and even meditation, among other less traditional forms of treatment for chronic pain and certain diseases. Many of these treatments date back thousands of years and focus on taking a larger, more integrative approach to your health. This is in contrast to traditional medicine that is often more focused on simply prescribing a medication that may make your symptoms improve in the short term, but likely won’t actually solve the underlying issues that could be causing the condition in the first place.
Why is Alternative Medicine Beneficial?
There are a whole host of benefits to taking a more alternative approach to your health and well-being, a few of these include:
- Being sick for prolonged periods is tiring – If you’ve been dealing with pain or chronic illness for a long period of time, your body has likely taken a toll, but so too has your mind. Extended periods of illness can lead to bouts of depression, which is why holistic medicine can help you to ease your physical pain so you can begin to focus on strengthening yourself mentally and spiritually as well.
- Many medications are addictive and have harmful side effects – Many of today’s most commonly prescribed medications have horrible side effects and can be extremely addictive. Look at the opioid crisis that is literally ravaging our nation. With holistic medical practices, you can focus on more natural ways to deal with pain and disease that don’t rely on these highly powerful medications.
- Build a stronger relationship with your providers – At St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center, you are not just a patient, you are a friend and part of our larger family. We want to work with you to develop a highly individualized treatment plan that helps you now and molds with you as your health needs change in the future.
