Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine combines the benefits of traditional medicine with evidence-based alternative treatments. The goal is to provide a holistic approach to healthcare that incorporate practices such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and more. By addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of wellbeing, integrative medicine creates a way to achieve optimal healing through a collaboration between the provider and the patient.


Benefits of Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is a unique way to address each patient’s need for personalized and holistic care. With this approach, providers and patients can work together to find the set of treatments that support overall wellbeing.

Personalized Care

At the heart of integrative medicine are individual treatment plans that take into account each patient’s unique health, lifestyle, and circumstances. This whole-person, individualized approach integrate, or combine, treatment approaches to achieve an approach that delivers health.

Enhanced Treatment Options

Integrative medicine expands the treatment options available to patients. As a result, patients can enjoy a more flexible approach to care and can explore treatments that may support their health, but that may have been unavailable through conventional medicine alone.

Prevention Focus

Finally, integrative medicine does not wait until illness strikes. Instead, it prioritizes preventive care, healthy lifestyles, stress management, nutritional support, and other approaches that can hold off disease, reduce the occurrence of chronic conditions and support a happier and healthier life overall.
