  • What exactly is holistic "oriented" mean. Where I come from you are holistic or you are western medicine?

  • meaning ...when medicine is absolutely needed then it is prescribed but if there is a more natural way to clear something up then there is knowlegde of it. I find that many dr.s in western medicine don't even have the knowledge...therefore they prescribe too many antibiotics (etc., etc.,). There are times when antibiotics are needed but i find them to be abused in this society. Also- insurance is less likely to include a strictly holistic dr ( if you are forced to use "preferred physicians")sadly enough.
