About Integrative Medicine
Integrative medicine considers all of you–body, mind, spirit, and community–in creating your unique picture of health. The result is an intelligent combination of conventional and alternative medicine, taking the best from both worlds to keep you healthy and thriving. Conventional medicine has long been an excellent choice in urgent or catastrophic situations. It is often driven by technology and pharmaceutical solutions that may or may not help you achieve true healing and optimal health. Alternative medicine offers treatment via natural remedies, such as nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, massage, biofeedback, meditation, and yoga, but may lack high-precision diagnostic tools or evidence-based solutions. Integrative medicine selects the best diagnosis and treatment available based on both effectiveness and reduced invasiveness.
