What does ‘holistic’ mean?
Holistic means any form of medicine or health care that supports the body as a whole and promotes health and healing.
Holistic health care is all about supporting the entire pet patient from the ground up and allowing them to fix it as they’re their own best mechanic. We don’t actually have to know how to fix every problem because, at the end of the day, their own bodies are going to be the best at fixing those problems on their own.
Holistic medicine does not necessarily have to mean something that’s ancient or traditional. Holistic approaches in medicine can include acupuncture, herbal therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, stem cell therapy, and electromagnetic therapy to stimulate healing.
The goal is to support the body as a whole organism – in order to encourage healing.
