Coastal Natural Health
A Holistic Health Resource
Welcome to Coastal Natural Health!
Many people recommend that you treat your health like one would a retirement fund - invest in it now so that is available to you later.
There are many different ways to approach taking care of your physical and mental health. Holistic health is characterized by the treatment of the whole person. Rather than simply trying to treat the symptoms of a problem, a holistic approach to health takes into account a body’s systems as whole systems, and attempts to treat both, a patient’s mind and their body.
Branches of medicine
There are many different branches of medicine and treatment philosophies that take a more holistic approach to patient care compared to more traditional and standard treatments people receive through Western medicine. Many people who would not typically go outside of the mainstream, now see acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths, osteopaths, herbalists, homeopathic doctors and massage therapists for everything from general management of health to serious health issues and problems.
More and more, people are trying to lead healthier and cleaner lives. More and more, people are taking proactive steps to create chemical and preservative free environments for themselves and their families. Nowadays, more and more people have access to organic foods and products, and look to these to make positive changes in the way they live their day to day lives.
“Alternative” medicine and lifestyles are no longer just for, “alternative” people.
Many people approach their health with a sense of responsibility and ownership, and take an active role in researching ways to improve their own holistic health.
