As our name suggests, at Desert Willow Holistic we believe that medicine is best practiced from a “holistic” perspective. This allows the doctor and patient to work collaboratively, making best use of all the wide range of options available. To better understand the meaning of holistic healing, I have developed the four steps to optimal health explanation. The following principles will help to contexualize these steps.

Principles of Holistic Medicine

  1. Treat the person, not the disease
  2. Address the underlying causes of disease in a curative fashion
  3. Promote optimal health drawing on all modalities of healing
  4. Timing, timing, timing

The Four Steps to Optimal Health

    We must clear the body of harmful influences. These consist of:
    • Heavy metals (mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, etc)
    • Xenobiotics
    • Allergens
    • Infection (virus, bacteria, parasites, mold, etc.)
    • Electromagnetic forces
    • Geopathic Influences
    • Unresolved psycho-emotional conflicts (UPEC)

    Treatment Examples: IV and oral chelation; Far infrared Sauna; Immune support; Spagyric Drainage remedies
    Living cells require a constant supply of nutrients. Those most necessary include the following:
    • Minerals
    • Vitamins
    • Essential fatty acids
    • Amino acids Hormones
    • Neurotransmitters
    • Probiotics
    Damaged and weakened cells require attention in order to facilitate optimal functioning. Repairing biological functions takes place with the administration of proper nutrients and remedies which promote healing and regeneration.
    Treatment examples: Seacure amino acid therapy; Homeopathic restorative remedies; Nutritional and botanical remedies to rebuild gastro-intestinal lining
    This level speaks to maximizing functioning of all living cells and tissues and maintaining this level of health through proper management of life style and a personalized nutritional plan including metabolic typing, blood type and allergy profile.
