Many patients feel as though their physician or family care provider does not see them as an individual. This often leads to non-compliance with treatments, medications or other recommendations. However, it is possible to receive quality health care that focuses on the individual as a whole. Holistic medical care addresses every aspect of one’s life, including lifestyle and personal beliefs among other things, when treating someone. This type of care is not a new concept. It has been recognized and used in the medical community for years to increase better patient outcomes. Contrary to widely held belief, some insurance companies will pay for holistic care. Those who provide these services are also licensed health personnel with proper training. A health care provider is not just treating a disease or condition, but treating a person with multiple concerns, beliefs and lifestyle choices.
