Chasing illness or empowering wellness?

the most import ingredient you can have for good health is hope”

The primary difference between traditional Western medicine and alternative approaches is attitude and philosophy. Debates will rage on over technology and protocols but the true difference is really about objectives.

Western medicine is still relatively new in both practice and concept with most advances occurring in a matter of decades. Alternative medicine is based on traditions that are based on centuries of practice and application.

Western medicine focus is on symptoms and overcoming disease. If something doesn’t work properly, remove it, either by surgery or by pharmaceuticals. Much as I love the TV show “House” the forensic focus is on tracking down symptoms in a Sherlock Holmes fashion. The attitude is one of eliminating disease.There are times when this is the perfect approach but often it is not because in order for your doctor to be a detective they are reliant on information that only you can give. The old saying “physician heal thyself”, to me means that each of us must be our own physician. Ultimately, we are the ones who bear the responsiblity for our own health care, even the when, where, who, and how of the care “we” initiate is dependant on our decision making process. The public service ad of recent years encouraging people to ask questions of their doctor is key to what I’m communicating about who has the responsibility for your health care.

Alternative medicine at it’s best has a holistic approach that looks at the entire person. Rather than focusing on the disease or malfunction, the focus is on bringing the body back into balance. The attitude is one of empowering wellness. Homeostasis is the state of being harmonious with wellness. It is based on the belief that the body wants to function in a state of wellness, therefore, the treatment is about assisting the healing process.

Massage is a treatment that bridges both approaches. Injury massage is about addressing malfunction caused by trauma. Therapeutic massage is all about assisting the bodies healing process. Massage is an effective companion modality for both approaches and represents a tool you can utilize no matter what your healthcare approach is.
