‘Changing Times Call for Smarter Doctors’ (click to read article)

Andrew Weil, MD established the field of Integrative Medicine, which combines conventional treatments with alternative therapies. Here he spells out all of the questions we have in the labels that surround our field of medicine!

Here is a quick quote from the article:
“Integrative medicine has much broader goals than simply bringing appropriate complementary and alternative therapies into mainstream practice. In particular, it aims to:

(1) Restore the focus of medical teaching, research, and practice on health and healing;
(2) Develop “whole person” medicine, in which the mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of human beings are included in diagnosis and treatment, along with the physical body;
(3) Take all aspects of diet and lifestyle into account in assessing health and the root causes of disease;
(4) Protect and emphasize the practitioner/patient relationship as central to the healing process;
(5) Emphasize disease prevention and health promotion.

I believe that integrative medicine is the future of medicine and healthcare. Integrative medicine doctors, together with like-minded nurses, pharmacists, and others, are best positioned to improve health outcomes for patients and create a functional, cost-effective health care system that serves all of our citizens – one that shifts the focus of medicine from disease and treatment to health and healing. “

Acupuncture for Fertility

June 18th, 2011

Raleigh acupuncture | Raleigh acupuncturist | Raleigh naturopath | Raleigh alternative healthcare | North Carolina acupuncture | Meaghan Dishman, ND, L.Ac. | Bloom Integrative HealthWe all have dreams!

And for most of us, that dream involves creating a family. There are many women and men who face a variety of challenges with the process of conceiving and carrying to term. Here at Bloom Integrative Health we are here to help you actualize your dreams and to help ensure that your pregnancy remains as naturally healthy as is possible for you.

Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) and Acupuncture have centuries old traditions of treating fertility and addressing Endocrine (hormone) imbalances. Naturopathic Medicine involves stimulating the body’s innate ability to be in a state of health and optimal function within the organ systems, such as the reproductive and hormonal systems.

In modern times, acupuncture and CCM are gaining increasing use and support by western medical doctors due to an increase in success rates of pregnancy to term and healthy babies with or without hormone therapy or IVF in women and men who use acupuncture as a preconception modality.

Whether you are seeking to enhance fertility naturally or to increase the effectiveness of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) while minimizing side effects, Bloom’s Natural Fertility Program can help you!

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of primary health care – an art, science, philosophy and practice of preventing, treating and determining the cause of disease. Naturopathic medicine’s techniques include modern, traditional, scientific and empirical methods.

Steeped in philosophy, Naturopathic medicine uses a unique lens from which the physician views the patient. Treatments are geared towards restoring a patient’s vitality and optimal function. The foundation of Naturopathic medicine revolves around the philosophy that the body has an innate wisdom and ability to heal itself when the cause or imbalance of any disease and obstacles that hinder the ability to heal are uncovered.

Principles Of Naturopathic Healing

There are six principles of healing from the foundation for naturopathic medical practice. These include:

  • First Do No Harm
  • The Healing Power of Nature
  • Identify and Treat the Cause
  • Treat the Whole Person
  • Prevention is the Best Cure
  • Doctor as Teacher

Dr. Meaghan Dishman, ND, LAc, MSOM is currently the only Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor in Raleigh, who is also a Nationally Certified and State Licensed Acupuncturist. Naturopathic Physicians are board certified Medical Doctors and are currently licensed to practice medicine as Primary Care Physicians in 16 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Naturopathic Medical training consists of 2 years basic science training followed by Basic Science Board Exams, and a subsequent 2 years of clinic science training followed by Clinical Science Board exams.

On top of her Naturopathic medical training, she has also completed a 4 year Masters of Science program in Classical Chinese Medicine, which consists of 2 years western basic science and Chinese theory training followed by 2 years of Chinese clinical training and Chinese Clinical, Acupuncture and Herbal Board exams.

Acupuncture is currently the most well-known and scientifically studied component of the entire system of Chinese Medicine. It is a therapeutic modality that is grounded in thousands of years of successful clinical practice in the treatment and prevention of many disease conditions.

Acupuncture treatments involve manipulating specific points along meridian pathways on the body that cause an instant change in blood flow and body function.

The goal of Acupuncture treatments is to reestablish balance within the body in order to promote healing.
