Holistic & Integrative Optometrist Q & A
What is holistic or integrative healthcare?
Holistic integrative medicine is a modern approach to medicine that aims to unite what’s become an overly fragmented system of medical treatment. The holistic health method considers the entire man, woman, or child as a complete entity rather than focusing on an isolated disease, symptom, or body system.
Throughout her medical training, Dr. Brisco saw the need for a more integrated approach to treating vision problems and promoting eye health. As a mother and optometry patient herself, Dr. Brisco appreciates the option to treat conditions without medications or surgery whenever appropriate.
Dr. Brisco goes above and beyond a standard eye exam. She carefully considers all aspects of your life, including stress levels, diet and exercise habits, and occupation. This thorough evaluation allows Dr. Brisco to recommend the most effective treatment to help you achieve your maximum potential rather than simply covering symptoms.
What treatment modalities might integrative optometry include?
In addition to being a Doctor of Optometry, Dr. Brisco is a Certified Clinical Homeopath who provides a greater scope of treatments to the men, women, and children she sees at Hollywood Vision Center, Optometry, Inc.
In addition to homeopathic options, Dr. Brisco may recommend one or more of the following treatment modalities for your eye condition:
- Chinese Medicine
Dr. Brisco continues to use prescription corrective lenses, pharmaceutical medicines, and other conventional Western treatments but gives you alternative treatment options whenever appropriate. Depending on your condition, she may recommend using a combination of holistic and conventional treatments.
What are the benefits of holistic integrative vision care?
Homeopathic medicine triggers your body’s natural healing abilities by stimulating your immune system. Boosting your immune system not only benefits eye health but also improves the overall health of your body.
By offering a multidisciplinary approach to eye health, Dr. Brisco treats a broader scope of eye problems with a greater variety of treatment options. Instead of masking symptoms, she aims to discover and improve the underlying condition, preventing or reversing eye damage whenever possible.
