Medicine at Levity Health Medical Centre
We define Holistic Medicine as an approach that looks at all aspects of the person.
This includes the primary reason they have come in to see us (a particular pain or disease) but also includes other aspects of their health to help them address the core cause of the dysfunction and improve their overall levels of wellness.
Our Medical practitioners work with a combination of East and West principles, a combination of mind, body and spirit.
From a “body” point of view, our practitioners look at how you go through your daily life and how it may be affecting your health. We asses your exercise program, your diet and things that may be affecting the structure of your body such as the movements you need to perform in your everyday occupation. We also investigate further into the foundations of health by looking at gut health, adrenal function, allergies, sleep, thyroid function and possible exposure to toxins.
From a “mind” point of view, we take a look at how a you perceive the world around you and what you feel causes you stress, because your perception will affect your physiology, hormones, immune function and the way the body produces energy.
During consultation, we take a comprehensive health history followed by appropriate examination and investigation. Treatment may involve a wide range of therapeutic interventions ranging from acupuncture to osteopathy to dietary changes, oral or intravenous supplementation, herbs and relaxation techniques; and if necessary, prescribed medications.
Our Medical Doctor has been trained at a postgraduate level through ACNEM (Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine). For more information please see the ACNEM website at http://www.acnem.org/
