The Wellness Way

Acute-Care vs. The Wellness Way

 

The system of medicine practiced by most physicians is oriented toward acute care, the diagnosis and treatment of trauma or illness that is of short duration and in need of urgent care, such as a broken bone or appendicitis. Physicians apply specific prescribed treatments such as drugs or surgery that aim to treat the immediate problem or symptom. Much like needing to call "911" when your house is on fire, we've been taught there isn't a problem until it's an emergency.

 

Unfortunately, the acute-care approach lacks the proper methodology and tools for preventing and treating complex chronic disease. In most cases it does not take into account the unique genetic makeup of each individual or factors such as environmental exposures to toxins, and the aspects of today's lifestyle that have a direct influence on the rise in chronic disease in modern Western society. Just like hiring a carpenter to remodel your house before it burns to the ground, you can practice health and change through The Wellness Way.

We Don't Guess—We Test

 

The Wellness Way approach addresses the underlying causes of disease using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an expansion in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more individual-centered set of symptoms. Our practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, we are supporting the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
