Dr. Justin Hoffman says- Treating the root cause of illness requires a “Whole Body and Whole Person” approach! – This is true integrative medicine.
Integrative physicians that are trained extensively in Naturopathic medicine, think of symptoms as the leaves of a tree- if you trim the leaves back, and let the roots stay intact, the leaves will grow again! Dr. Hoffman treats the root cause of illness allowing patients to truly and effectively heal.
Dr. Hoffman individualizes each treatment plan to meet patient’s specific and unique needs as a whole person. Dr. Justin Hoffman specializes in the science of disease prevention and health management to help you thrive, reclaim your vitality and sense of well being.
In the last century, western modern medicine has made great strides in its ability to understand disease. The techniques that physicians utilize in their treatment of disease, have become quite sophisticated. For example, there have been very innovative advances in imaging such at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), which assist physicians in identifying possible problems. Moderns medicine has dedicated a great deal of money and research towards advancements in treating chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer, as well as acute disease with medications or surgery.
However, there are two significant drawbacks to modern medicine. First, it divides all diseases into individual systems, rather than seeing the body’s systems as functioning in cooperation together. Dr. Hoffman does not ignore the important truth that one symptom can have complex causative factors which may involve many body systems. Second, modern medicine’s quest is to fix disease (cut it out or numb it out) rather than preventing it from developing in the first place! While modern medicine is very well suited for the treatment of acute disease requiring surgery or medication, it is poorly suited for preventing and treating many of the most common chronic diseases.
As a holistic primary care doctor, Dr. Hoffman does not just manage chronic illnesses with medication alone, but also focuses on integrative and natural approaches to health. Dr. Hoffman understands the importance of proper nutrition, maintaining proper weight, regular exercise, effective stress management, emotional well being, balancing the mind -body connection, healthy lifestyle practices, as well as avoiding things like alcohol, tobacco and food addictions.
