EMU Nursing Grad Leader In Holistic Medicine
Some medical service providers are turning to a new method of patient treatment amid growing concerns over healthcare.
Holistic medicine takes a more in-depth approach to treatment and examines the patient as a whole instead of focusing on their physical ailment. That, according to Justin Carpenter.
"In western medicine you're looking at just treating someone physiologically," Carpenter says, "so if you have a heart attack, you're just looking at the medications to get the heart back in order. You're not looking at the whole person, so you're leaving out a lot of what's going on with that person."
Carpenter says he believes holistic practices will grow in popularity as awareness increases.
