What is the main difference between wellness care and standard medical care? Wellness care seeks to stimulate our natural healing ability. Wellness care does not add something to the system, rather it removes anything that may interfere with normal function. Where standard medical care seeks to treat a symptom by adding something from the outside - a medication, a surgery or procedure - wellness care trusts that the body would knows what to do when nothing interferes with it.
If a patient has high blood pressure, a standard medical approach is to choose and prescribe a drug designed to lower it. Although medicines may indeed lower the blood pressure, it ignores the underlying cause, and runs the risk of side effects complicating recovery. Medication may decrease the blood pressure, yet leave the root cause of the of high blood pressure symptoms unaddressed, whether it's a nutritional issue, faulty control by the nerve system or a manifestation of stress.
Wellness is a state of optimal conditions for normal function... and then some. The wellness approach is to look for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments would optimize the conditions for normal function. That environment encourages natural healing, and minimizes the need for invasive treatment, which should be administered only when absolutely necessary. When the body is working properly, it tends to heal effectively, no matter what the condition. When the body heals well and maintains itself well, then there is another level of health that goes beyond "asymptomatic" or "pain-free" which reveals an open-ended opportunity for vitality, vibrant health, and an enhanced experience of life.This is true for mental and emotional health as well as physical health. While some people may suffer psychological disorders, creating an atmosphere of mental and emotional wellness will address all but the most serious problems
