Your whole plant medicine alternative to opioid drugs includes food concentrates, or extracts of foods that can be clinically used by knowledgeable doctors as herbal medicine. Whole plant medicine contains the full spectrum of phytochemicals available in the plant. These include beneficial plant compounds like endocannabinoids, polyphenols, and flavinoids. Your natural clinical nutrition doctor uses whole plant oils such as organic cbd oil. High grade oils or extracts of medicinal plants may contain cannabinoids like cbd, terpenes, triterpenes, alkylamides, curcuminoids, or other naturally occurring medicinal compounds found in medicinal herbs. The key in whole plant medicine is the full spectrum of phytonutrients (plant nutrients) that are available; not just an isolated chemical (an isolate) derived from a plant.
Stop The Opioid Crisis, Now
Can a pill containing a combination of foods be your medicine? Drugs are never food. Food is never a drug, but food in clinical potency can be your medicine. You can let food be thy medicine, just as Hippocrates said. We use foods as medicines all the time, but it is not diet alone! Clinically, we use concentrates of foods, and whole herb extracts from plants. Full extracts of plant parts, like just the roots, are also what we use. These are not isolates, because the full compliment of nutritional compounds found in the roots are available in the extract, not just a single aspect.
Our herbal medicines are vegetarian whole food concentrates, or plant medicine, but extracts from whole foods don't always have to be from plants. There are valuable extracts that can come from the animal kingdom too, containing extracts from various tissues found in the animal kingdom. When we do our in-office holistic evaluation for you, we will be able to determine the best natural formulas for your specific needs.
Alternative to Opioids: You Never Have To Start On Opioids
The key to the opioid crisis is to never have to start on opioids in the first place. This is where the chiropractor, who has more formal training in nutrition than any other kind of doctor in the world, can make all the difference for you. Our approach is non-opioid. Chiropractors never treat with opioids like oxycontin, percocet, or vicodin.
Holistic chiropractors use whole food medicine and whole plant medicine with all the specialized chiropractic testing methods and techniques that make chiropractic doctors unique. When you notice that you are doing better, you won't need to manage your symptoms as much with conventional chemical drugs. Then you can become able to reduce your medicines and even eliminate those medicines. This could be your best path to getting off opioids/ opioid drugs or getting off medicines that you were told you would have to take for the rest of your life. So, with your medical doctor's OK, you would be able to reduce your current medications or finally eliminate your chemical medicines!
Herbal Medicine Doctor
Clinical nutrition is not about covering a symptom, but instead to help your body systems to function more optimally, so that your symptoms become unnecessary. It is very different than going to a doctor or a facility where you just tell the doctor what you want and the doctor just guesses that you are correct, and fills a prescription for you.
When you come to our Beverly Hills office, you get a detailed exam, and only the herbal medicine or whole food concentrates you really need, based on our clinical examination. We use a systematic holistic evaluation method that gives us great insight into what your body needs, right now, to help bring you to a higher level of health. Through this systematic method (and also with the information we can get from more traditional testing methods like blood tests), we can see the big picture of your health needs, and can construct an effective holistic, chiropractic, clinical nutrition program for you. Ours is a complete health empowering program including aspects of your body's structure, biochemistry, toxicity and emotions, designed specifically for you.
