The holistic health approach takes the broadest possible view of illness and disease, identifying multiple causes (both internal and external), and offering multi-dimensional “healing,” as opposed to specific “cures.” It is as concerned with one’s propensity towards disease as it is with its transmission. Why does one person get colds or infections more easily than another, or at different times? Can we render ourselves more hardy and disease-resistant before medical intervention is necessary, and more resilient when illness does occur? Our Calgary integrative clinic embraces the philosophy of treating the whole person.
Lyme Disease Clinic
We have dedicated a majority of our practice to helping people suffering from Lyme Disease. Dr. Risk has first hand experience with this illness and is determined to help others overcome this terrible affliction, this is why we have made this lyme clinic. We have many resources and information on lyme on this website, including a forum, where you can ask questions and post your stories. We have developed a unique treatment protocol by combining the best of available natural treatments for lyme, as well as Dr. Risks own personal experience in Chinese Medicine. Treating lyme naturally has many advantages, as I can be significantly cheaper, more effective and more gentile on the body when compared to traditional antibiotic therapies currently offered by medical establishment.
Both natural doctors and patients alike are bonding with the philosophy of integrative medicine, its whole-person approach and holistic health concepts in general — designed to treat the person, not just the disease. IM, as it’s often called, depends on a partnership between the patient and the doctor, where the goal is to treat the mind, body, and spirit, all at the same time.
While some of the therapies used may be nonconventional, a guiding principle within integrative medicine is to use therapies that have some high-quality evidence to support them.
The team of natural doctors and other practitioners in our holistic health clinic is united by a commitment to quality patient care to ensure the best outcomes. Meet with us and refine the way you see health today!
