What is holistic medicine?

Holistic medicine is a whole-body approach to health. It considers all aspects of the whole person, including physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual wellness. 

With holistic medicine, you work closely with your health care providers to create healthy life changes using primarily natural approaches.

  • Naturopathic medicine
  • Chiropractic care
  • Acupuncture and acupressure
  • Massage
  • Aromatherapy
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Energy therapies like Reiki

At Natural Health Specialists LLC, Dr. Fischer is a naturopathic doctor (ND). He also incorporates aspects of other branches of holistic medicine, such as integrative medicine, to ensure you get the most complete care.

What is naturopathic medicine? 

Naturopathic medicine is a branch of holistic medicine that uses a bodywide approach to healing and wellness. As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Fischer focuses on treating you as a whole person, looking at all aspects of your life to find the root causes of illness and dysfunction. 

He helps you improve your health by harnessing the healing power of nature. Dr. Fischer recommends treatment approaches, including research-based targeted nutritional therapeutics and custom herbal formulations. 

One of the key aspects of naturopathic medicine is physicians acting as educators. Dr. Fischer provides detailed health education and customized lifestyle counseling to empower you in your health and wellness journey. 

Naturopathic medicine also focuses strongly on the prevention of acute and chronic diseases through making healthy choices, balancing your body systems, and improving your nutrition. 

Generally, naturopathic medicine involves combining techniques to maximize your results. Dr. Fischer may also recommend traditional approaches along with alternative naturopathic ones. 

For example, Dr. Fischer works with your primary care provider to identify any nutrient depletions resulting from long-term use of prescription medications. Additionally, Dr. Fischer identifies possible supplement, botanical medicine, and drug interactions and helps you avoid them.

Natural Health Specialists LLC offers a subscription-based service (6-month commitment required). You’ll have a monthly half-hour visit with Dr. Fischer to help guide you in getting healthy. All visits are telehealth, giving you expert naturopathic care from the privacy of your own home.
