Since the very beginning of her career as a healthcare professional, Dr. Juli Mazi ND has remained a firm believer in the benefits of both conventional and holistic medicine. Having received her doctorate in naturopathic medicine, Dr. Mazi has seen first-hand the healing power of holistic treatments such as herbal medicine, medical nutrition, and homeopathy. However, she also maintains that treatments such as these are often effective when utilized in tandem with the modern advances of conventional medicine.
Dr. Juli Mazi ND explains that many of holistic medicine’s biggest proponents often tend to distrust conventional healthcare. By the same token, many of those who put their trust in conventional medicine often write off holistic treatments as “snake oils” and “voodoo medicine”. According to Dr. Mazi, though, the choice between conventional and alternative medicine does not have to be an either/or decision. Using both methods is known as, “Integrative Medicine,” and naturopathic doctors, like Dr. Mazi, are experts in this realm.
Rather than competing with one another, Juli Mazi views alternative and conventional medicine as two complementary methods. According to Dr. Mazi, the best approach to treating any number of diseases and conditions can often be a combination of both conventional and holistic treatments.
As the popularity of alternative medicine continues to skyrocket, more and more healthcare providers and patients alike are starting to adopt this same viewpoint. While the advances of modern medicine can certainly make it easy to overlook the importance of holistic healthcare, Dr. Juli Mazi contends that holistic treatments such as those that she offers in her practice can work to make conventional healthcare treatments all the more effective.
According to Dr. Mazi, the disconnect and separation between conventional and alternative medicine is something that often prevents patients from receiving the best possible treatment for their condition. In an ideal world, Dr. Juli Mazi ND says that patients would be able to combine both types of treatments, when necessary, trusting in the unique benefits of each one. The goal is to find the most effective treatment protocol, with no negative side effects.
Dr. Mazi recognizes that many people trust only one form or medicine or the other, but she is encouraged by the recent growth of Integrative medicine and the growing trust in the benefits that holistic treatments are able to provide. Now, Dr. Mazi plans to continue promoting the benefits of holistic treatments in order to work toward a healthcare system that provides patients with the least invasive and yet, the most effective possible combination of modern advances and timeless natural remedies.
