The modern medical world has become incredibly confusing for many Americans to navigate, especially at a time when chronic conditions have become alarmingly epidemic. As we grapple with a challenging diagnosis we are often faced with the difficult decision of where to turn to for the help and guidance we need.
Healthcare is continuing to shift away from a system based on treating symptoms and instead focuses on getting to the root cause of disease, in which many patients are finding support and healing from integrative practitioners.
What truly defines Integrative Medicine?
An “Integrative doctor” has been trained in allopathic medicine but has undergone additional education in the use of complementary therapies. Their aim is integrate both conventional and alternative methods of healing as they see the gifts and value in each type of medicine. So while using allopathic tools, an integrative doctor might also recommend other alternative healing modalities such as acupuncture, massage, or yoga. They often utilize herbal and nutritional supplementation and perform advanced testing that will help them get to the root cause of each patient’s issue.
An integrative practitioner also strives to help each patient learn how to balance their mind, body, and spirit in order to promote their overall health and well-being. They often spend more one-on-one time with their clients while they do a more in-depth analysis of their health goals and needs. The world of integrative medicine understands that instead of focusing on healing individual systems of the body we must support the healing of the body as a whole.
