Here is the bottom line: staying healthy is cheaper and more enjoyable than getting sick!
Health care and health insurance is getting costlier for many of us. At the same time, there is widespread concern that our choices under the current system will be limited. Consider the following:
- the cost of doctor visits
- the cost of missing work
- the loss of productivity
- the cost of spreading illness to the rest of your family, friends, and co-workers
- the problems that can arise from the side-effects of prescription medications (for example, there are over 100,000 deaths in the U.S. per year from properly prescribed prescription medications).
- prescription medications can be very expensive, even after insurance coverage
- problems can arise from hospitalizations, like hard-to-treat infections
A holistic practitioner’s view is “how well are you”. A conventional doctor’s view is “how ill are you?” Conventional doctors too often no longer have the time to get at the root cause of a person’s symptoms. Patients often complain they do not have time to explain their symptoms and concerns to their doctor, and doctors complain they don’t have time to listen to all of them.
Not addressing the root causes of ailments over time can lead to serious illness. Not addressing the root causes can result in symptoms that drag on and on, a very frustrating and even scary situation.
Dr. Cathie Lippman is a medical doctor who recognizes these problems. She takes the time to discover what causes are creating the symptoms. Then, using tools of holistic alternative medicine she provides a program for you to improve your health and overall wellness while alleviating your symptoms. Dr. Lippman utilizes painless ways to determine where the problems are and what would assist your body in reducing them or healing them altogether. Whether your problem is allergies, rashes, heartburn, insomnia or joint pain, prescription medications might reduce some of the symptoms yet do not get rid of the problem. The medications often cause painful or problematic side effects. Dr. Lippman would prescribe nutritional supplements, herbs, and/or homeopathic remedies to treat the problems.
Here is what Dr. Lippman says: “For more than 30 years, my practice is founded on the belief that you need and deserve an individualized program just for you. What works for one person might not work for another. The holistic treatment programs I recommend are designed to eliminate your symptoms and to improve your health and well-being. That will keep you feeling and looking younger longer so that you can enjoy more of life and all it has to offer.
