The traditional and the alternative healthcare are both essential though their ideals have been at odds for many decades. Therefore, it is critical that you look at each approach and make an informed decision for the correct healthcare approach at the right time. Indeed, your very life may depend on it. Let’s start by examining each one.
What is Traditional Healthcare?
Originally, traditional healthcare held medicines and surgeries as a last resort when nutrition, hydration and other less drastic measures failed. What we now call traditional healthcare is actually a new form of healthcare. It is a healthcare system with the goal of detecting and managing diseases primarily with medicines and surgeries. In this area, the United States ranked as the 35th country for Lancet’s Healthcare Access and Quality Index. Iceland, Australia, Switzerland, Spain, Netherlands, Japan and Ireland all ranked significantly better than the United States. All of these countries have universal healthcare policies that make healthcare free or very close to it for all of its citizens.
What is Alternative Healthcare?
Alternative healthcare is a form of healthcare that uses nutrition, hydration and other less drastic measures to aid the body in adjusting itself in order to heal and correct health issues. This is what is practiced at Optimum Health. We leave the curing brought on by medicines to the physicians and focus on assisting your body with healing. This means that we try to ensure that your body has what it needs to restore its own health and then we get out of the way and watch as your body brings itself as close to its optimum health status as possible. This is a small difference but it has a huge impact. SEE TESTIMONIALS

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEALING AND CURING?
Optimum Health ask:
“TO CURE OR TO HEAL?“
THAT IS THE QUESTION
Curing and healing, what is the difference? At times, curing can be the same as healing. Curing is a legal term that only the medical establishment is to use. Legally, one must reserve curing to an appearance of normalcy brought on by medicines. In contrast, there are no real implications for the term healing. Anyone who helps the body to restore health by any means available can use the terms heal and healing.
