Freely Choosen Medicine
We believe that as American citizens, we should have the liberty to freely choose our medicine and source of health and well being. In addition to conventional medicines that places its emphasis on physicians, science and chemistry, we believe that individuals should have access to an integrative approach to healing that emphasize nature and the individual. There are a myriad of therapies that support the bodies natural ability to heal and address the whole body, not just symptoms.
Common therapies and brief description of their focus/intent as provided by the Minnd.org Handbook:
Nutrition assess and analyse individual needs and develop personalized nutrition plans using nutrient therapy, dietary and life style approaches.
Naturopathy treats the patient’s mental, emotional and physical state, by supporting the body to repair itself with nutrients, diet, and a range of natural therapies.
Chiropractic Treatment assumes that the body is a self regulating organism and that good health is dependent upon a normally functioning nervous system, especially the spine and nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body.
Osteopathy treats the whole person and places emphasis on the relationships between the body’s structure, framework and function appreciating the body’s ability to heal itself.
Homeopathy recognizes that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient who needs treatment not the disease. Emphasis is placed on supporting natural immunity. . Acupuncture uses hair thin needles and/or electrodes to redirect obstructed energy through the meridians, resulting in a positive shift in the energy of organ systems and its overall function, thereby restoring health. Kinesiology uses the muscle feedback system to determine how the nervous system exerts control over organ systems and helps the body to heal itself by normalising its internal functions.
Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on energy healing technique gently mobilizing spinal fluid within and around the central nervous system which is believed to create a vital body rhythm.
