Holistic medicine evaluates patients from their overall wellness as a whole. These include the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects that define wellness. Conventional medicine focuses primarily on the mechanical, biochemical and bio-physiological aspects of health. In Holistic medicine, when one aspect of the three components (physical, emotional, spiritual) is not functioning optimally, it can create imbalances with the other two, thus causing health issues.In addition to treating symptoms, Dr. Kokayi performs a thorough analysis to detect the systemic causes of illness such as autoimmune disorders. He believes in looking at the whole health picture and making the necessary adjustments to all factors that affect it.
