Holistic Medicine Q & A

What is holistic medicine?

Holistic medicine takes an alternative approach to health care by focusing on all aspects of wellness, including mind, body, and soul. It combines traditional and complementary treatments to help individuals achieve health and wellness.

Before entering private practice, Dr. Akamangwa attended Charis Bible College. There, he received extensive theological and pastoral training as well as his medical degree. 

Dr. Akamangwa combines the unique aspects of his education to facilitate a state of true wellness through God’s love and healing.

What services does holistic medicine offer?

At Charis Medical Center, Dr. Akamangwa offers various holistic medicine services, including:


Dr. Akamangwa firmly believes in the power of prayer. As a practicing Christian, he regularly communicates with God and asks him to provide healing and comfort. Following each appointment, Dr. Akamangwa sets aside time to pray on each individual’s behalf.

Nutrition counseling

The foods and beverages that you consume directly affect your energy levels, focus, and quality of life. If you eat a diet that’s packed with sodium, saturated fats, or sugar you’re more likely to experience serious health problems. Dr. Akamangwa uses nutrition counseling to encourage healthy eating.

Consuming a well-balanced diet containing fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole-grains can help your body function optimally. 

Vitamins and nutritional supplements

Sometimes a healthy diet isn’t enough to prevent nutritional deficiencies or hormonal imbalances. Instead of relying on synthetic medication, Dr. Akamangwa often prescribes all-natural alternatives like nutritional supplements and vitamins. 

Following a comprehensive exam and review of your health history, Dr. Akamangwa can make recommendations that align with your needs.

Healthy lifestyle recommendations

Achieving whole body health goes beyond routine doctor’s appointments and eating a healthy diet. You also need to exercise regularly, have a stress management plan in place, and participate in hobbies or other activities. 

Dr. Akamangwa can work with you one-on-one to develop a holistic care plan. By focusing on specific aspects of your life, he can help you achieve better health and happiness.

Who can benefit from holistic medicine?

Anyone who wants to improve their mental or physical health can benefit from holistic medicine. Dr. Akamangwa sets aside plenty of time to meet with each of his patients and works to understand their individual needs and concerns. 

Following an in-office consultation, he can develop a specific regimen that improves every aspect of your life.
