WELLNESS

Get Well/ Stay Well

While many countries boast about the scope of medical treatments available to consumers, they often fail to acknowledge that high out-of-pockets costs and deductibles can make treatment prohibitive for many individuals. Thailand has more than two dozen JCI-accredited hospitals and clinics offering everything from routine health screenings to life-saving transplants and innovative therapies not available elsewhere. Comparable to facilities in any European or North American city, Thailand’s hospitals and clinics are equipped with cutting-edge technology, highly skilled physicians—many of whom trained and practiced in world-class institutions—and superlative patient care standards. A full-range of medical treatments across every specialty is available, including orthopedics, cardiology, oncology and neurology. Small boutique clinics serve those seeking anti-aging and rejuvenation treatments such as hormone replacement therapy, IV nutrient cocktails and chelation therapies. The quality, diversity and affordability of medical treatments available in Thailand empowers patients to take control of their health and quality of life.

Acupuncture treatment

Acupuncture is an ancient treatment originating in China that is at least 2,000 years old. It is one component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the other components being various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (Tui Na), exercise (Qigong), and dietary therapy. Thailand boasts some of the most popular acupuncture clinics in Asia. We even work with first class JCI Accredited Hospitals that offer acupuncture treatment.

Want-To-Get-Chiropractic-Care-Advice

Chiropractic Treatments are available in Thailand although it can be difficult to find a licensed chiropractic physician. Chiropractors are required to work under the license of another health care professional, most often a medical doctor or physical therapist.  There are at present less than 30 fully registered chiropractors working in Thailand.

Global Healthcare Options can introduce you to those chiropractors that have met the stringent certification criteria required by the Ministry of Health.

DETOXIFICATION

Detoxification treatments are available throughout Thailand, with Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui and Chiang Mai being the most popular locations.

In general, detoxification falls into two broad categories: natural and medically supervised.

Fruits & Veggies

Natural Detoxification

Natural Detoxification most often relies on embracing a simple or clean diet, occasionally with water or juice fasting, the use of enemas or colonics and taking a variety of natural or herbal supplements. Natural detoxification treatments are available most often in beach resorts and in small naturopathic clinics. The length of a detox program varies greatly, but in general between 3 and 21 days, with 5 to 7 days being the most popular.

Medically Supervised Detoxification

Medically Supervised Detoxification usually starts with a physician consultation and a careful evaluation of the individual's current state of well-being.  Before your physician prescribes a personalised detoxification program, she will usually conduct a number of laboratory tests to determine the presence of "stored toxins" and to evaluate how well your physiology can eliminate toxins from your body.  For example, a medical detox program may start with measuring heavy metals in the body or perhaps other industrial pollutants.   Other tests might measure the unique nature of your liver detoxification enzymes, your intestinal flora, your bowel transit time, and possibly even the presence of specific genomic variants that might make you either more or less susceptible to pollution of any type.

Medically supervised detoxification programs usually consist of some variation of the following components:

  • Clean Diet or Water or Vegetable Juice Fasting
  • Medically prescribed nutraceutical products
  • Specific physical activities
  • Infra-red sauna
  • Stress management exercises
  • Reinforcement of rational lifestyle alterations including adequate sleep, minimisation or elimination of smoking, alcohol consumption, and non-essential medications and or drugs
  • Some medical professionals recommend hydrocolonic or enema therapy followed by re-inoculation of the bowel with pro and pre-biotics

Global Healthcare Options, in alliance with our numerous service providers can create a highly personalised detoxification to meet your or your group's specific needs.
