Integrative medicine is a holistic medical discipline which takes into account the lifestyle habits of a patient. The physician works to treat the whole person rather than just the disease. The mind, body, and soul of a patient are taken into consideration to promote healing and well-being. Integrative medicine uses a combination of modern healthcare practices to diagnose and treat a patient.
After diagnosis and treatment, an Integrative Medicine patient can expect that his or her symptoms will diminish in severity. In addition, he/she will be able to enjoy a renewed sense of well-being and a significant increase in health and vitality.
In addition, educating patients about their conditions empowers them to take charge of their own health, ultimately leading to greater success in treatment.
