Pain can be a very challenging symptom to manage because it can affect one of any or all perspectives – physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. If only the physical is being addressed, it may not resolve the pain.
Coming from a Holistic perspective, each one of the 4 areas are investigated during a consultation.
Since we feel the pain physically, we have been taught to turn to Western Medicine to find relief. However, when the pain lingers after many attempts of trying to alleviate the pain, without resolution, the other arenas need to be investigated as well.
We check for toxins that may be residing in the area/s of the pain. According to Chinese medicine and other alternative medicine philosophy, there may be an emotional, mental, or spiritual imbalance that may be affecting the area as well. All arenas are investigated to see where imbalances may be. Then if there are imbalances in ANY of the four areas, we address them as needed. We screen/test for homeopathic remedies, herbal remedies, tinctures, and/or creams made with natural products to assist in eliminating the pain.
