Integrated medicine is a combination of alternative natural medicine with conventional biomedicine.
Some doctors and patients are unsatisfied using drugs or medications solely to treat or suppress a specific disease. Our goal is to help our patients become healthy and often times a combination of an integrative approach is necessary.

Treating the Whole Person with Integrated Medicine

Both doctors and patients alike are bonding with the philosophy of integrative medicine and its whole-person approach — designed to treat the person, not just the disease.

IM, as it’s often called, depends on a partnership between the patient and the doctor, where the goal is to treat the mind, body, and spirit, all at the same time.

While some of the therapies used may be nonconventional, a guiding principle within integrative medicine is to use therapies that have some high-quality evidence to support them. (source: WebMD)

The Appeal of Integrative Medicine

What makes integrative medicine appealing? Advocates point to deep dissatisfaction with a health care system that often leaves doctors feeling rushed and overwhelmed and patients feeling as if they’re nothing more than diseased livers or damaged joints. Integrative medicine seems to promise more time, more attention, and a broader approach to healing — one that is not based solely on the Western biomedical model, but also draws from other cultures.

“Patients want to be considered whole human beings in the context of their world,” says Esther Sternberg, MD, a National Institutes of Health senior scientist and author of The Balance Within: The Science Connecting Health and Emotions. (source: WebMD)
