integrativeWhat is Integrative Holistic Medicine?
Integrative Holistic Medicine combines the best of conventional medicine and evidence based complementary medicine to achieve a natural balance that enables the healing process. It does not replace or reject “mainstream medicine” but rather takes a whole person approach to health, acknowledges the science of the mind body connection, views the relationship between physician and patient as a partnership and strives for wellness in contrast to the absence of disease.

The whole person approach accepts that there is a physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspect to not only health and wellness but to illness as well. Treatments of presenting issues are always offered in synergy with strategies for true prevention and wellness promotion. Patients are empowered with tools and strategies that allow them to take responsibility for their ultimate well-being.

From anxiety to fatigue, from premature aging of the body and skin to hormonal imbalances, from autoimmune disorders such as Hashimotos thyroiditis to type II diabetes, there are many factors that contribute to the development and fueling of imbalances in the body. To that end, we take a comprehensive lifestyle history;do a scientifically based nutritional laboratory evaluation combined with traditional laboratory evaluation to determine your unique individual needs. We then tailor your unique step by step “return to vitality plan”. Our goal is to help you to live your best life at any age by integrating the best of what holistic medicine and conventional medicine has to offer.
