Medicine vs Therapy

Medicine is used to cure physical diseases. In simple terms, medicine returns your body to its usual functions, when illnesses have caused it to function unusually. Therapy helps you to tackle psychological issues which are damaging your health.

In the past, therapy has often been dismissed as being inferior to medicine. Here’s why that’s so wrong. Let’s say you’re feeling depressed and go for a late night walk to clear your head, then slip over and sprain your ankle. A paracetamol might relieve the pain coming from your sprained ankle. However, it will not address the initial causes of your depression. For that you need a therapist to help you boost your self-confidence and increase your self-esteem.

Medicine and therapy often work hand in hand to not just make people feel healthier, but to give them a greater sense of wellbeing. Greater wellbeing makes people feel happier and enables them to get more out of every day as they live their lives to the fullest.

It’s important to be open to a mixture of different treatments. The perfect combination could change your life for the better forever. For more information about how therapy can help you, check out our YouTube Channel. Alternatively, please email or fill in the contact form me and we’ll have a chat.
