What is Holistic Health and Wellness?

Our bodies have the innate capacity to heal themselves. This core principle serves to guide the fundamental teachings and practices of a diverse array of systems of healing, including Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, chiropractic, osteopathy, homeopathy, naturopathy, energy healing, and shamanism. Conventional western medicine, however, remains the only field of medicine that has yet to embrace this core teaching as a basis for its medical education, training and practice. 

 

At Caldwell Pediatric and Wellness Center the art of applying the core principle that children have the innate capacity to heal is what makes the holistic approach an advantage for ultimate healing and the maintenance of optimal health.

 

Mind, body and soul...Holistic health focuses on the health and wellness of the entire person, instead of just the present illness or injury.    This means that our holistic practitioners will inquire about nutrition, lifestyle behaviors, stress management and other factors when helping parents determine the best plan of action for their child(ren)'s present and long-term wellbeing.  Our holistic practitioners often recommend the use of alternative and integrative practices to enhance wellness and/or prevent the need for more invasive therapies.  Preventive health behaviors are recommended and strongly supported by our holistic practitioners.
