Integrative medicine is a whole person approach to healthcare. It focuses on your entire life and lifestyle, not just on treating your symptoms with a medication. Integrative doctors look at your entire life and help you find the root cause of the symptoms. Heartburn, for example, may be a result of many causes. Perhaps it is related to stress, diet, exercise or something anatomical like a hiatal hernia or H. pylori. We just treated your pain, the underlying cause would continue. However, as integrative doctors, we are able to help you overcome the reason that your stomach hurts so that you live pain-free without the need for medication. Integrative medicine can be applied to every patient’s complaint, whether it is pain, autoimmune disease or fatigue.
Problems like a stroke or broken bones are well suited for a conventional medical approach and we are very grateful to our hospital and surgical colleagues when this care is needed. However, for many chronic or recurring problems, an integrative approach can be more useful. Many patients would prefer to avoid taking a daily medication and often an integrative approach can help you get to the root of the problem, minimize medication use and side effects.
If you are not satisfied with the care and treatment you have received through traditional means, seek out the advice of an integrative medical doctor who is fully trained in Western medicine and safe and effective alternative options. With an integrative approach, the treatment options increase and you have more control over the types of care available to you, so you can take full advantage of the best of western and alternative medicine.
