What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative Medicine is a form of medical therapy that combines practices and treatments from alternative medicine with conventional medicine.
Integrative medicine and health 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 and lifestyle approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
Health care that emphasizes healing, self care, patient-provider relationship and exploring all factors that affect wellness are hallmarks of a growing field in health care called Integrative Health.
An Integrative Health practitioner uses all appropriate therapies, both conventional and complementary, to facilitate healing and promote optimal health. In the past several decades, the United States has seen a dramatic increase in morbidity from preventable illnesses such as obesity, heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
