Are You Sick Of Just Managing Symptoms And Want To Get To The Root Of Your Health Challenges?
Integrative Medicine looks at the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) and applies healing based medicine from this big picture perspective.
Many people turn to Integrative Medicine once they’ve hit a wall in treatment with their GP.
Integrative Medicine emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative. This approach looks at the whole picture and gets you on a fast track back to health.
The principles of integrative medicine:
- A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process.
- Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response.
- Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, spirit and community as well as body.
- A philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically.
- Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms.
- Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible.
- Use of the broader concepts of promotion of health and the prevention of illness as well as the treatment of disease.
- Training of practitioners to be models of health and healing, committed to the process of self-exploration and self-development.
