Holistic Doctor and Integrative Family Physician in Maryland
Dr. Paul Beals, MD, is a holistic doctor and an integrative physician, certified in family medicine, who has been practicing both conventional and alternative medicine for 30 years. His private family practice, located in Stevensville, MD, allows him to treat patients from Annapolis, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Dr. Beals’ goal is to restore each patient to health while providing the patient with the best possible healthcare.
Holistic and Conventional Medicine: The Best of Both Worlds
Practicing both holistic and conventional medicine allows Dr. Beals to offer his patients “the best of both worlds.” As a holistic doctor, Dr. Beals is motivated by successfully helping patients who have not responded to conventional medical treatment and who are looking for non-toxic options and a doctor who will listen, respect, and work with the patient as a team. As an integrative family physician, Dr. Beals has the ability to prescribe antibiotics and other prescription drugs as necessary. He is also a certified clinical nutritionist who believes that food and dietary supplements can be used in the healing process. According to Dr. Beals, “practicing alternative medicine means that I go above and beyond for your health, testing for things that a conventional physician doesn’t know to look for, such as: heavy metal toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, chemical imbalances, yeast, hormonal issues, and more.”
What does it mean to be a holistic doctor?
As a holistic doctor, Dr. Beals strongly believes in educating the patient on all of the treatment options available and appropriate to the individual’s needs and health. Dr. Beals believes that the patient is in charge of his or her own healthcare and should be an integral part of the decision-making process, every step of the way.
“As a holistic doctor, I care enough to go the extra mile to get the patient better. It is important for me to get to know the whole person as well as diagnosing the disease.”
Employing the best techniques of both conventional and alternative medicine, Dr. Beals creates a treatment plan after examining the “whole patient.” Using a results-based approach and working with the patient as a team, he uses lab tests, nutrition, and the patient’s own history of symptoms to put together an individual treatment plan. Then he meets regularly with the patient to ensure that the treatment is working and to conduct retests.
