A holistic doctor is a fully-qualified doctor who takes a whole-body approach to healthcare, selecting from conventional medication and alternative therapies, when treating a patient. While Holistic doctors treat symptoms, they are also concerned with the cause of those symptoms and aiding lasting wellness.
Your holistic doctor will use a combination of traditional medicine in conjunction with a variety of natural options, depending on your condition. They can help you get to the root causes of your issues, build your immune system and even support you with weight loss issues to enable you to have better health.
Not all GP’s are holistic doctors, but holistic doctors are general practitioners who have completed additional training in nutrition and functional medicine.
Whether Medicare will cover your consult depends on your specific situation. Discuss this with your doctor.
