Our Model of Healthcare
Archive »Recent Articles
For over 50 years it has been our unrelenting quest to provide the highest quality of health care to our patients. We maintain a firm belief that our patients are not just a set of symptoms and problems, but real people with real needs.
Here at the Peterson Clinic, we practice in accordance with this belief and maintain an approach that is patient-centered, wellness-oriented, and supported by a functional-medicine model. We believe that optimum health is not merely the absence of disease, but also the ability to function and enjoy life at optimal levels. This integrative bio-psycho-social approach has been a long time tradition in both Chiropractic and Naturopathic medicine. It allows us to not only treat the disease but to also explore the underlying roots of particular problems that arise and that have a way of disrupting our body's innate ability to heal itself when given the opportunity.
Most non-traumatic, non-genetic health problems stem from the accumulation of choices that have been made over the years. These choices revolve around what we call the triangle of health. The triangle of health is an expression of the balance that exists between the physical, biochemical and perceptual sides of a triangle. If any one of these sides fails, then symptoms of ill health will begin. Every disorder contains all of these components, to some degree.
You, the patient, are the expert on your life and how you feel.
Therefore, it is important for you the patient, to take the next step of discovering the cause of your
problem and how to bring about healing. Like the old saying goes, To alter the course of your disease,
you must alter the course of your life. As the patient, you are not just a recipient of procedures; you are
a vital part of the healing partnership.
