Complementary (Alternative) Medicine

Within the medical field, there are several schools of thought that define  the type of care given to a patient, among these are Conventional and  Complementary Medicine.  Conventional Medicine (Western Medicine) is a system in which medical  doctors and other health care professionals (such as nurses, pharmacists, and  therapists) treat symptoms and diseases using drugs, radiation, or surgery.  On the other hand, Complementary Medicine (Eastern Medicine) is practiced using methods perceived to be more “natural” such as dietary supplements,  vitamins, herbal preparations, special teas, acupuncture, massage therapy,  magnet therapy, spiritual healing, and meditation.  At Leumit, we believe that by offering a combination of both Western and  Eastern practices, popularly referred to as holistic medicine, we can provide  our patients with a level of health care that is unparalleled in its ability to meet  their individual needs while maintaining the highest level of care.  In addition to the standard Conventional Medical practices, complementary medicine includes Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Tai-Chi, Shiatsu, Reflexology, Naturopathy, Yoga, Biofeedback and Chiropractic.
