Natural Health Care

Natural Approaches 

At Home Health Works, we do not advocate the use of psychiatric medication for behavioral or mental health problems. Often elderly people have pronounced nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of problems such as insomnia, depression, and anxiety.

Rather than a quick patch to cover up the real problem, we believe that a thorough medical evaluation with pertinent laboratory testing will exactly define the cause of the problem so that it can be corrected. This precise scientific approach will give an accurate diagnosis, which then will lead to a true solution to the problem.

Side Effects of Drugs

Statistically, too many patients are on unnecessary medications. Often these medications cause so many side effects that it becomes impossible for anyone to know what is really happening in the patient. We find that most situations in which prescriptions are given can be better handled with natural, non-toxic solutions.

If you are interested in learning more about these natural solutions, our director of nursing can refer you to a professional whose specializes in safe and effective alternatives to prescription medication. Natural alternatives may include diet changes, nutritional supplements such as vitamins and minerals, or even ordering a backrub at bedtime to promote restful sleep.
