Welcome to DrGascoigne.com
This Website provides services and information for patients, those interested in holistic methods of health-care and for holistic health-care practitioners.
My aim is to:
- Offer advice and treatment to people seeking relief from symptoms or those looking for methods to stay healthy.
- Support the practice of holistic medicine.
- Bring information about holistic methods of healing to as wide an audience as possible.
- Provide people with information so that they can choose the most appropriate method of health-care for themselves and their families.
The world of medicine is rapidly changing. People are more questioning of their health-care practitioners and as information becomes more widely accessible, this can be of great benefit in the search for relief from illness and to attain improved levels of health. There is a need for clearly presented information that is easily accessible and can be used by anyone.
Holistic, as applied to the practice of medicine, means ‘becoming whole’, ‘integrating ourselves into a healthy whole’. It necessarily implies encouraging and empowering people to heal themselves. As we progress along the path of healing, of wholeness, we become aware of the underlying issues that lead to symptoms and disease. Classically, holistic methods embrace Chinese medicine, homoeopathy, herbalism, osteopathy, chiropractic, massage and many other forms of ‘energy medicine’. However, any method of healing that considers the whole person and provides them with a path towards health, can truly be described as holistic.
I hope that you find something here of benefit to you and others. I welcome your suggestions, comments and feedback. This site is continually being developed. Please visit again.
