Holistic medicine differs from ‘traditional’ medicine in that it looks at each person as a whole and treats them as such. You’re not just an illness or disease. Treatment isn’t just about tossing a prescription at the symptoms of your ailment. Rather, holistic medicine recognizes that you are the sum of many parts, including your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual beings. An imbalance in one of those areas can manifest ailments in another. The whole person needs to be taken into account when looking at treatment.

Homeopathy is commonly used to treat toothaches and cold/flu symptoms like fever and sore throat. It is also used to treat some chronic illnesses including depression, arthritis, eczema and asthma.
