INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE

The field of integrative health and medicine reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals, and professions to achieve optimal health and healing. Simply put, integrative health and medicine offer best practices for optimal health and healing.

Integrative care seeks to develop a therapeutic relationship between the doctor and patient. This specialized form of medicine emphasizes the bio-psycho-socio-spiritual aspects of a person to improve health. The therapeutic relationship between the doctor and you results in longer in-depth appointments. During the appointment, the doctor discusses all aspects of your life and creates a customized treatment plan. Personalized care is offered based on the patient’s unique set of circumstances, including dietary choices, community, and family history, and lifestyle choices. This is because there are many things that influence health, including body, mind, spirit, and community. A variety of tests may be ordered, including blood tests, saliva tests, and more.
