Licensed chiropractor James Sheehan, MD practices holistic medicine at Woywood Integrated Medicine in Live Oak, Texas. Holistic medicine is a natural approach to healthcare that evaluates your entire body, both mental and physical, to identify the root cause of your health issues.
The medical practice most people are familiar with is one that focuses on treating symptoms, which is self-limiting and rarely produces true healing. Holistic medicine seeks natural ways of helping your body heal itself.
For example, if you’re having trouble sleeping, traditional medicine will most likely prescribe you sleeping pills and send you on your way. Holistic medicine explores why you’re not sleeping well and evaluates all the angles.
The solution might be as simple as avoiding caffeine after a certain time of day so your natural circadian rhythm can do its thing. Or it could be something deeper, like needing to address stress and anxiety so your mind can calm down enough to sleep.
Woywood Integrated Medicine utilizes holistic therapies like IV nutrition, lifestyle management, natural medicine, herbal medicine, and more.
IV nutrition therapy involves administering a therapeutic dose of various nutrients via IV drip. It’s faster than eating, guarantees 100% nutrient absorption, and comes in various nutrient combinations that can match specific health needs.
Our two most popular IV therapies are the Myers cocktail and vitamin C. The Myers cocktail contains a blend of vitamins and minerals with a focus on B vitamins and vitamin C. Patients get this blend for a variety of needs, including allergies and migraine. The vitamin C most often used to nutritionally support your immune system.
Lifestyle management is a big part of holistic medicine because it’s the most natural, non-invasive way to address health issues. A healthy lifestyle, including good food, regular exercise, quality sleep, and giving your mind time to unwind, can make a big positive difference. There are so many health issues you can correct just by adjusting your lifestyle, including managing optimal blood sugar and blood pressure.
Natural medicine utilizes whole food supplements and dietary choices to address specific conditions. Just one nutrient deficiency can throw your whole body out of whack. We make supplemental recommendations based on blood work and the root cause of your condition.
Herbal medicine utilizes herbs in the form of tea, extracts, powders and more to nutritionally support the body in myriad ways, from weight loss to immune function. One of the amazing things about nature is that it provides all the nutritional tools we mere mortals need to achieve and maintain optimal health and vitality. We offer many herbal remedies to aid in treating various conditions.
Dr. James Sheehan’s whole person approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and making whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that will optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Sheehan is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.
