Holistic Healing Q&A
What is holistic healing?
Holistic healing is a unique approach to medical care that focuses on whole-person wellness. As a holistic medical care provider, Dr. Ha considers your child’s body, mind, and spirit all equally important in their health and wellness.
The holistic healing philosophy holds that only through ideal body balance can anyone attain the highest level of wellness. All of your child’s many interconnected body parts must be at individual peak function to enjoy true full-body health.
How do you diagnose illness using holistic medicine principles?
Holistic medicine recognizes that physical or mental illness is often related to hidden problems within the body. When these root causes of illness are identified and properly remedied, it can often heal the illness at its source.
That's why Dr. Ha often starts the diagnostic process by doing a full analysis of your child’s diet, exercise, sleep, and other lifestyle habits.
In some cases, Dr. Ha may also perform specific health screenings or tests to help make a diagnosis, especially if your child is at risk for certain conditions or illnesses.
Essentially, Dr. Ha looks carefully at every aspect of your child's body, mind, and spirit to make a diagnosis so she can identify the true root cause of the illness.
How does holistic healing work?
Holistic healing is highly individualized according to your child's needs. It's very different from traditional medical care in which a doctor may simply write a prescription for medication. As a holistic healer, Dr. Ha sees your child as an individual, not an illness.
She partners with you and your child to improve all aspects of your child's life by correcting the problems causing an imbalance in your child's life.
This often includes making nutritional changes, such as adding supplements that improve nutrient absorption, enhance digestion, boost brain health, increase immune function, and more.
Homeopathic medicine, in which your child takes tiny diluted amounts of a symptom-causing natural herb or substance, can also help your child build resistance so they can overcome a variety of illnesses.
Treatment may also include other lifestyle changes or adjustments, as well as natural complementary therapies like meditation, massage, yoga, acupuncture, and chiropractic care.
As a medical doctor, Dr. Ha also has full access to allopathic medicine approaches, including prescription medication if needed. Your child may need a blend of alternative and allopathic medicine therapies for best results.
