What is Integrative Medicine?

So…Could you please tell me What is Integrative Medicine?

To me Integrative Medicine means creating a partnership with the patient and myself. It means that my focus is on the patient’s health and healing rather than focusing on that person’s symptoms or disease. Each person is different in the way they treat their body, mind and spirit. Integrative Medicine’s focus is to be proactive in helping a patient become the healthiest they can be right now and in the future.

Integrative Medicine does not ever rule out using conventional medicine. The goal is to use methods that will be effective for the patient in making them healthy over their life span and not just overcoming a particular sickness or disease. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.
