Holistic Medicine Q&A

What is holistic medicine?

Holistic medicine is a branch of health care that focuses on natural, non-surgical, and non-pharmaceutical treatments. Its main objective is to offer an alternative to other forms of medicine that emphasize pharmaceutical medications.

At Ahearn & Associates Medical Center, the holistic medicine team takes your whole person into account rather than just one organ, system, or disease. They consider multiple factors affecting your health, including your mind, body, and spirit, as well as your environment.

The team keeps these factors in mind while creating your holistic treatment plan, which won’t include medications or surgery. Instead, they prioritize natural remedies and safe supplements to restore balance to your health and wellness.
