Integrative Medicine is the integration of conventional medicine along with complementary and alternative medicine or traditional whole body systems of healing.

We work with patients to create individualized treatment plans, using the best possible treatments from both complementary and alternative (CAM) and allopathic medicine based on patients individual needs, the condition, and the scientific evidence for these approaches.

Integrative medicine involves:

  • Removing barriers that may activate the body’s innate healing response.
  • Using natural, less invasive interventions before costly, invasive ones when possible.
  • Engaging mind, body, spirit,and community to facilitate healing and creating optimal healing environments.
  • Maintaining that healing is always possible, even when curing is not.
