Holistic Treatment Definition

published by Dr. Marcantel on February 4th, 2010 Print this page

Holistic care considers the patient as a whole, including his physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, environmental and cultural needs.

Dr. Marcantel works with patients to identify and treat not just the symptoms of their complaints, but the root causes of illness. These often lie in unexpected “connections” with various facets of a person’s emotional and physical state.

As an example, lower back pain may be attributed to stress brought on by financial worries. By discovering the true source of the problem, it is often possible to eliminate the problem rather than just simply mask the symptoms with pain medication.
