Holistic Medicine Q & A

What is holistic medicine?

Holistic medicine takes a whole-person approach to health care. Rather than just addressing symptoms of an underlying medical condition, holistic medicine takes into consideration all aspects of your life and their impact on your health.

Dr. Feiwel focuses on your physical health as well as your mental and emotional health to support the overall function of your body. A holistic approach to care can also reduce your risk factors for chronic diseases.

When should I consider a holistic medicine consultation?

You can benefit from the holistic medicine services available at the office of Nancy Feiwel, MD, if you’re looking to improve your health and increase your vitality and quality of life.

Dr. Feiwel also recommends a holistic medicine consultation if you’re managing an underlying medical condition and want to reduce your reliance on medication. 

Using a holistic medicine approach, Dr. Feiwel can address:

  • Weight loss or weight imbalances
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Gastrointestinal dysfunction
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Food sensitivities and intolerance

Dr. Feiwel can customize a holistic care plan if the medications you’re taking are no longer working well.

What can I expect during my initial holistic medicine consultation?

During your first appointment with Dr. Feiwel, you can expect to discuss any symptoms or preexisting medical conditions. She reviews your medical history, exercise routine, diet, and sleep habits. The more details you can provide, the more personalized your care plan will be.

Dr. Feiwel offers food sensitivity testing to identify foods that trigger an inflammatory response in your body and cause symptoms such as stomach pain, gas, bloating, diarrhea, and other uncomfortable gastrointestinal symptoms.

Based on your exam and test results, Dr. Feiwel customizes a care plan using holistic strategies like:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Stress management
  • Daily exercise
  • Healthy sleep habits

Over several months, Dr. Feiwel works closely with you, so you can implement the necessary behavioral changes for success. She provides ongoing guidance to help you make lifelong changes that support your physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
