Providing a science-based, natural way to become healthy again.
Peoples Holistic Therapy Center's health approach to healing focuses on, spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health. Unlike many modern remedies in which one medication or one treatment is expected to
fill a general need, Peoples Holistic Therapy understands that we are all individuals and must be considered as such in order to heal. Peoples Holistic Therapy Center's approaches health problems differently. Instead of masking the problem, our aim is to restore the body's natural functioning.
We are patient-centered holistic healing at its best. Instead of looking at and treating health problems as isolated diseases, we treat patients who may have bodily symptoms, imbalances and dysfunctions.
As the following graphic of an iceberg shows, a named disease such as diabetes, cancer, or fibromyalgia might be visible above the surface, but the cause lies in the altered physiology below the surface. Almost always, the cause of the disease and its symptoms is an underlying dysfunction and/or an imbalance of bodily systems.
Named diseases are just the tip of the iceberg. Below the surface are the real causes of a patient's health
problems. If health care treats just the tip of the iceberg, it rarely leads to long-term relief and vibrancy.
Identifying and treating the underlying root cause or causes, as Peoples Holistic Therapy Center does, has a much better chance to successfully resolve a patient's health challenge. Using scientific principles, advanced diagnostic testing and treatments other than drugs or surgery, Peoples Holistic Therapy Center restores balance in the body's primary physiological processes.
We listen compassionately. We research extensively. We explain thoroughly.
During the initial Holistic Assessment you will be asked for details about current concerns and symptoms but we will also ask in depth questions to gain an overall picture of you, your lifestyle, your habits, family history and outside influences which may be impacting your overall health. We will inquire about your current diet, medications, stress levels, as well as your long-term health goals. We will gather information about your past and present medical history. Your body naturally wants to be healthy. But things needed by the body to function at its best might be missing, or something might be standing in the way of its best functioning.
Peoples Holistic Therapy Center first identifies the factors responsible for the malfunctioning. Then we deal with those factors in a science-based, natural way specific to the patient's health condition, providing remedies and alternative therapies.
The initial Holistic Assessment is a 30-60 minute discussion covering your clinical history and any areas of specific health concerns, and past and current diagnoses. We will work together to find relief from your health concerns.
You will be provided with a customized holistic health care plan that you can take with you. The plan will give you a list of the products recommended in your specific Health Care Package and their directions for use, schedule and dosing.
We extensively research your conditions to incorporate remedies and alternative therapies to encourage and promote balanced healing for your particular health/medical issues. In addition, we will educate you about your condition to empower you to take charge of own health and ultimately lead to greater success in treatment. We work synergistically with your medical doctor to provide you the best health care possible.
Your personalized plan is specific for your conditions and gives you the information and tools you need to address your current state of health. Your plan will focus on your emotional, mental and physical health.
It's also important to note that treatment recommended by Peoples Holistic Therapy Center for similar symptoms might vary tremendously for different patients, according to their medical history and results of laboratory tests. Factors that can come into play in producing the same symptoms include toxic chemicals, pathogenic bacteria, parasites, chronic viral pathogens, emotional poisons like anger, greed or envy, and structural factors such as tumors or cysts.
Include products developed to specifically address your current state of health holistically. We use a combination of natural agents (supplements, herbs, nutraceuticals and homeopathy), nutritional and lifestyle changes, spiritual/emotional counseling, and pharmaceuticals necessary to prod a patient's physiology back to an optimal state. It is not a one-size fits all approach to your health care needs.
You will be educated about your condition to empower you take charge of your own health. This will ultimately lead to greater success in treatment. We work synergistically with your medical doctor to provide you with the best health care possible. In addition, your current conventional medications are reviewed and a medication therapy review will be provided.
Peoples Holistic Therapy Center's Laboratory testing has the ability to detect disease and help guide treatment decisions. We can access 130+ conditions and diseases associated with clinical laboratory tests used for screening.
It is recommended that routine health screenings be performed for some conditions and diseases. Getting routine tests performed even though you have no symptoms can help detect problems early and help you benefit from easier and more effective treatment. It can sometimes even prevent disease. It's easy to take these tests for granted, but their power to keep you healthier longer should not be underestimated.
Monthly reassessment sessions are available to re-evaluate treatment, therapy and assess current health care status.
Appointments will be scheduled at initial session end.
Dr. Peoples will spend time with you in order to develop a strong doctor-patient relationship. Initial consultations may be lengthy and subsequent appointments are longer than what you might anticipate from a medical doctor.
Unfortunately, we do not accept insurance for payment of our holistic health services. Holistic Therapy medicine is not covered by health insurance in Virginia at this time. The current medical model does not fully recognize the strengths of preventative holistic medicine. You may check with your insurance company to see if they offer out-of-network coverage for alternative or complementary care. Fortunately, those individuals with a HSA (health savings account) or FSA (flexible spending accounts) are often able to use these plans toward naturopathic care. In these cases, we can provide you with necessary paperwork and itemized receipts. You should check with your HSA or FSA Provider for more information and specific rules.
