What is Integrative Medicine?

Updated: Mar 12, 2020

Integrative Medicine is the heart of my practice. From my perspective, is all of the following tenets.

  • Prevention and healing oriented, rather than disease-driven.

  • Recognizes the innate capacity of the body to repair itself

  • Honors the doctor-patient relationship such that the patient is empowered to be their own best health advocate

  • Considers the whole person in the body-mind-energetic continuum

  • Envisions the ecology of health.

  • Open-minded as well as scientifically discerning

  • Uses natural, less invasive strategies whenever possible

  • Prescribes pharmaceuticals when necessary best practice
