Medycyna holistyczna - izopatia
Holistic medicine - isopathy. Traditional medicine focuses on identifying and treating specific symptoms and diseases. Traditional treatments can be very effective but often cause undesired side effects. In holistic medicine, both examination and treatment focus on the patient as a whole, reducing the probability that treatment of one symptom or disease will create a problem in a different part of the body. Holistic medicine includes acupuncture, acupressure, chiropractic treatment, herbs, homeopathy, isopathy and other. Each of these techniques is aimed at restoring balance within the body and stimulating the body to heal itself. Because holistic medicine treats the patient as a whole, it can sometimes succeed where traditional medicine has failed.
