Integrative Primary Care

What is Integrative Medicine?


Integrative Medicine is a personalized treatment plan that incorporates both modern medicine and ancient healing techniques in order to promote physical, spiritual and emotional well being.

Are these treatments proven?


Integrative medicine has been proven to be effective in multiple medical journals and articles. Despite this proof, the FDA remains reluctant in supporting alternative medicine and therapies because of their financial gain from the pharmaceutical industry. Growing public interest is concerned with less invasive, safer, and less damaging treatments for chronic and terminal illnesses. New research in favor of alternative healing emerges every day. The World Health Organization actively engages in campaigns supporting the regulation and formal research of complementary and alternative therapies. The American Cancer Society and Cancer Treatment Centers of America both recognize integrative therapies as important techniques that can prevent and improve the negative effects of chemotherapy. Integrative medicine aims to improve the quality of life without the negative or addictive effects of traditional prescription drug therapies.
