Are you still not finding relief from your health issues, but have seen lots of doctors, specialists, therapists, and tried many treatments?
Integrative Medicine uses a ‘whole’ person approach, blending the best of traditional western medicine with holistic therapies including functional medicine, mind-body medicine, and natural treatments. We work together through a doctor-patient partnership, in order to understand your unique health history, and identify the root cause of your illness. Treatments and interventions are personalized and focused on treating the cause of the problem, instead of just masking the symptoms. All aspects of health are considered, including physical, psychological, emotional, social, spiritual, lifestyle, nutrition, and environmental factors.
During our work together, we will create a treatment plan that includes aspects of conventional medicine, complementary and alternative therapies. Treatments are tailored to your unique needs. Some people feel most comfortable starting with a more conventional approach, using prescription medicines, while working to integrate functional medicine, natural therapies, mind-body counseling, and lifestyle changes gradually over time. Others come to see me having spent years trying many prescription medications without success, and feel ready to try a new, more integrative approach, emphasizing natural treatments, counseling, and lifestyle changes. Over time, as needs change, we will continue to review your personalized plan and make adjustments, to keep you feeling good on your path to wellness.
Integrative Medicine services are available to people with complex, chronic health concerns, and for anyone seeking to improve their overall health and wellness. For clients interested in counseling and therapy services, integrative medicine is interwoven into sessions using a mind-body approach, and can be more or less emphasized according to your needs.
