Holistic Medicine

What is holistic medicine? 

Holistic medicine is an approach to health care that focuses on the whole person, not just their symptoms. Holistic care appreciates that there are many possible causes for any given illness and that quality treatment must move beyond only physical manifestations of the disease.

As a primary care physician who practices holistic care, Dr. Gaskill utilizes a wide range of methods for treatments, including traditional and alternative therapies. Holistic plans of care may include:

  • Medications
  • Preventive medicine
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Restorative medicine
  • Stress management
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Emotional or spiritual support
  • Naturopathic medicine
  • Anti-aging therapies
  • Sexual health therapies
  • Hormone replacement
  • Addiction support

Holistic treatment plans rely on complete assessments that evaluate every part of a person: body, heart, soul, and mind. Accurate diagnosis depends primarily on getting a comprehensive picture of your whole self and striving to put vital pieces together.  

What does a holistic medicine assessment entail? 

When you have symptoms of illness, disease, or pain, Dr. Gaskill takes time to understand the full range of possible underlying causes. Aside from a complete physical exam, your holistic assessment may include information regarding your:

  • Lifestyle habits
  • Stress level
  • Hormone status
  • Life circumstances
  • Sleep habits
  • Environmental or toxic exposure
  • Emotional and mental health
  • Personal support system
  • Nutrition and diet
  • Family history
  • Reproductive and sexual health
  • Weight loss history

Holistic medicine appreciates the role that things like grief, poor nutrition, stress, worry, anxiety, lack of sleep, and lack of physical activity can play in a person’s overall health and wellness.
