Our current medical system has very efficient and wonderful answers when it comes to acute conditions such as infectious diseases and accidents.
However, the ever-growing list of chronic health issues seems to somehow show its limitations. Yes, we have developed medications for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and so on, but often at a high financial cost and with a lot of side effects from the treatment itself.
And yet, each one of us have a powerful genetic heritage which has carried our race through time, through the harshness of our migrations all over the world, through ice ages, famines and plagues.
The ancestral approach to health claims that many of our currents ailments are diseases of civilisation. Chronic diseases are brought on and made worse partly by a mismatch between our modern lifestyles and our billion-years evolution.
In addition, modern medicine focuses on treating symptoms. In contrast, integrative healthcare puts the patient at the centre and addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. Treating the whole person addresses both the patient’s immediate needs as well as its long-term. This process enhances the ability of individuals to not only get well, but most importantly, to stay well.
Natural health leverages the healing mechanisms of the body to provide lasting benefits while minimising or removing side effects. It doesn't reject mainstream medicine, but works alongside it. Natural health is based on well known biological mechanisms, is science-based and is effective at what it does.
