What Does Dr. Arnold use for Treatment?
Botanical medicine- the medicinal use of plants and plant substances; Botanical medicines can be taken in many different forms- tea, food, extract, pills or capsules, and when dosed carefully and correctly, they can demonstrate potent healing characteristics.
Homeopathic medicine- the energetic use of plant, animal, mineral substances; Homeopathic medicines or “remedies” gently stimulate a person’s inherent healing ability. The entire range of mental, emotional and physical symptoms is considered with each patient. A single remedy is then chosen which addresses the complex pattern of a disease or dysfunction while taking into account the uniqueness of the individual.
Clinical Nutrition- the therapeutic use of foods, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to biochemically correct imbalances in the body and heal illness; The concepts of food as medicine and a healthy diet as a critical component in healing are fundamental to natural therapeutics, optimal health and whole-person healing.
Physical medicine- the therapeutic application of water, cold, heat and touch; Hydrotherapy, the therapeutic use of water, increases blood flow and improves organ function. It stimulates, relaxes and detoxifies. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, noninvasive hands-on technique (of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the craniosacral system, which is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord). CST works by helping the body’s natural healing mechanisms dissipate the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system. CST is effective for a wide range of medical conditions associated with pain and dysfunction.
Lifestyle management and counseling- promotion and maintenance of an individual’s state of optimal health through stress management, behavioral modifications, various exercise methods and mind-body techniques.
Treatment is selected upon the basis of patient individuality.
