Many people can agree that they may have tried more things than most when it comes to dealing with symptoms of the body day to day. How many times can you say you have tried a herbal remedy that has fixed your friend, only to find you don’t get the same relief? How many times have you tried to take different supplements in your diet to improve certain aspects of your health, only to see no difference? This is because the biological terrain in our bodies differs from one person to the next, which brings us to terrain medicine.
At the Centre for Biological Medicine in Richmond Hill, ON, we focus on testing a patient’s terrain in order to tie in the environmental factors for each patient. We understand that each patient is unique, which is why we employ terrain medicine in our treatments. To learn more, contact us today and schedule a consultation!
What is Terrain Medicine?
Terrain medicine is based on the theory that your body, the germs, and the microorganisms within them are all the result of the environment that they are developed in. A tree, for example, has roots that grow in the soil that help to create the tree. Our bodies have the same mentality and approach.
When it comes to terrain medicine, it isn’t a case of looking at symptoms and trying to fix them. It is working out why those symptoms have developed, the environment in which they were created, and making the improvement based on that knowledge rather than just taking a “hope for the best ” approach by tackling the one symptom or issue head-on. The best way to describe it would be that a “terrain” refers to a landscape, and all of its features. So when we consider a biological terrain, we’re taking into account what is called “the environment within,” which is the landscape in which a sign, symptom, or diagnosis was granted permission to express itself. So instead of tackling the symptom, you are looking at the reasons as to why it has manifested in the first place, and looking to resolve and fix the issue there.
What are the Benefits?
Terrain medicine means going beyond treating symptoms; it is looking at a general landscape of your body to work out what underlying causes there are and then offering up treatments based on those findings. With this concept in mind, we can see that improving and maintaining the biological, chemical, emotional, and energetic landscape of the body involves focusing on health and well-being.
How Can It Help a Patient?
For a patient, this means our team at the Centre for Biological Medicine in Richmond Hill, ON is looking at the bigger picture rather than trying to mask the problem moving forward. As you can imagine, this can lead to a number of benefits. If you’d like to learn more, simply contact us today and schedule an initial consultation. We look forward to speaking with you!
