Integrative Medicine takes a patient-centered approach to support the healing process. It incorporates alternative practices into traditional medicine by viewing health and illness as part of a cycle in which all components of the human biological system interact dynamically with the environment. For patients, this results in a comprehensive assessment of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors so their body and mind is supported with exactly what it needs during the healing process.
Integrative medicine uses the most appropriate interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to heal illness and disease and help people regain and maintain optimum health. All causes of an illness are examined. Factors such as biological, behavioral, psychosocial and environmental influences are taken into account.
