What is Integrative Medicine?

At The Center for Health & Integrative Medicine we blend both conventional medicine and natural therapies for optimal health & well-being. Many of our patients come to us because they want a Medical Doctor who also understands and utilizes natural options for health conditions. We believe there are benefits to utilizing a variety of different types of healing modalities. Conventional medicine provides appropriate interventions to deal with acute health challenges, such as heart attacks, broken bones, and traumatic accidents. Prescription medications may also be very useful in these situations. On the other hand, chronic health issues such fatigue, digestive issues, heartburn, and even autoimmune disorders can often be helped by addressing areas such as diet, nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle. Integrative Medicine looks at the “whole person” and searches for the root causes of health issues, rather than just treating symptoms. By combining multiple modalities, Integrative Medicine blends the best of both conventional medicine and various natural approaches to create a truly synergistic healing paradigm.
