FEATURE TOPIC:
“THE FOUNDATION OF hEALING: FIRST WE MUST TEST”

As we have noted often in the past, the practice of medicine is both art and science. It’s a process that begins with testing: gathering critically important information in order to determine the source of a health problem. With that information in hand, patient and practitioner can choose the treatment path most likely to produce the desired healing outcome. Those choices are also shaped by testing—data gathered to determine how the patient will respond to different treatment options. 

In the October issue of Health&Healing, we will focus on the “science” of medical practice—on what data are gathered and what tools are used to gather them. The range of testing mechanisms is tremendous; valuable information is revealed by many tools, including—to name just a few—X-rays, blood tests, saliva tests, electronic stress assessments, thermography, allergy tests, genetic testing, neurofeedback, and, of course, hands-on observation and evaluation.

Advances in evaluation technology—increasing the sensitivity and precision of these tools—make possible much more accurate diagnoses and more individualized treatment plans. Perhaps the most significant of these advances is in the field of genetic testing, where an analysis of a patient’s genes may guide the most effective treatment program for that individual.

In the October issue of Health&Healing, we will invite our gifted practitioners to focus on two critically important questions: What tests are most useful and efficient in discerning the source of a patient’s health issues? And what evaluation tools do they use to determine the best treatment(s) for a given individual?

You are invited to join this conversation about effective ways to promote health and healing.

OTHER VOICES, OTHER CHOICES ARTICLES

A special section of the publication—Other Voices, Other Choices—provides a forum for area practitioners to submit articles related to the feature topic. In this section, we invite health care/health service providers who have a special connection to the feature topic to write articles about their work.

Testing/evaluation is, as the October feature topic notes, the foundation for all healing practice. Therefore, it is true that all health care providers have a “special connection” to this topic. So, in this issue, we hope practitioners will share what’s new in evaluation technologies; the tests they find more effective in pinpointing the source of problems; and, especially, how they use tests to design an individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To join the conversation, see information about the Other Voices, Other Choices section in Advertising in Health&Healing, and contact us at 919-967-6802.
