Unlike modern medicine, holistic health treats the entire body, and not just the symptoms.
All modern doctors want to do is to gather all the symptoms and treat each one individually. Holistic health maintains that if you treat the entire body, the symptoms will fade. I wanted to talk to a Dr. who would treat me holistically, and who I could discuss holistic medicine with. I searched all over the Internet to find purveyors of holistic health in our local area. I found several doctors that specialize in pain management, but I didn’t associate the two of them together. It wasn’t until I talked to a pain management doctor, who said he believed in natural medicine, and not chemistry based medicine. He started talking to me about the difference between natural and chemical medicine. He said the best natural medicine he knew of was herbs. One of the best known herbs for healing was marijuana, which had been used for centuries. He asked me if I was interested in learning about holistic health, or if I was interested in it for a health reason. I had a couple of reasons for wanting to discuss holistic health and the use of marijuana. Even though I was still in my early 20s, I was suffering from macular degeneration. I was told that marijuana could help with the pain and slow down the progression of the macular degeneration. However, I was also interested in learning about holistic health, and I wanted to know how to get a degree in holistic health so I can help others.
