Integrative Medicine Physician & Hormone Replacement Therapy located in Honolulu, HI

Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex and chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and autoimmune disorders. Unfortunately, the acute care approach of conventional medicine is ill-equipped to address complex chronic diseases. As grateful as we are for modern medicine, jumping in with drugs does not succeed in helping with chronic ailments. The good news, though, is that most health issues can be successfully treated as long as the correct underlying cause is identified. Give us a call at Holistic Medical Center today to see how Dr. Tapryal can help you!

Chronic Disease

Traditionally, a medical doctor uses drugs as his tool to deal with dysfunction or disease. They diagnose a disease and match it with a corresponding drug. This model works well for acute diseases, infections, traumas, etc. However, it fails miserably in the care of chronic diseases.

The body has the ability to heal given the right factors and conditions. To function, the human body must have nutrients, however, often times the nutrients needed by your body to function are missing. Add back what's lacking and the body can be nudged back to optimal functioning.

At Holistic Medical Center this is the approach we use. Instead of masking the problem with drugs, our aim is to address the root cause and restore the body to its natural function.

If you are tired of quick fix prescriptions, then a different approach is what you need.
