Holistic care defines itself by its own nature.
It is the process of self-evaluation that begins with the patient wanting to take responsibility for his or her own well being.
This type of care is not reductionistic in nature. It does not break a person down into different pieces of dysfunction and try to fix the pieces one at a time. Instead, holistic caregivers strive to take into account the whole person on all levels simultaneously, by looking at the structural, emotional, nutritional, spiritual, and physical components of disease. Then, after doing so, they look for general patterns, that when corrected, will help resolve all levels of symptomology, regardless of which origin they may arise from.
This process also takes into consideration the natural process of healing, and the understanding that each person is an individual, and will, therefore, have a schedule of healing all their own. No two people are the same.
At Optimal Wellness Center we strive to be aware of this process from the beginning. We address the individual and the natural process of healing in the way we design our space, by how we greet our patients, by providing only the highest level of staff, doctors and therapists, and by offering the best nutritional products available, etc.
Most importantly, we support this process by maintaining a constant, loving, caring environment in which people can feel safe and comfortable while utilizing all our services. Holistic care is not any one thing; it is the process of self healing that one does for oneself because one feels it is important to be all they can be in their life.
