Integrative Medicine Q & A

Integrative medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit) including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, including conventional and alternative. It is a philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically. It recognizes that good medicine should be based in science, be inquiry-driven, and open to new paradigms. Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible is the goal. 

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is an approach to supporting and treating your health that uses traditional medicine, naturopathic medicine, and alternative treatments to prevent, treat, and heal illness, disease, and addiction.  

Holgistic views illness as an imbalance in the dynamic, complex systems of your body. Their integrative medicine-based care appreciates that the body can and will heal itself when it has adequate support and personalized treatment.

Integrated medicine assumes biological, behavioral, psychosocial, and environmental factors all have a significant influence on your health. The providers take a comprehensive assessment of each of these areas before developing your customized care plan.

What does an integrative medicine assessment involve?

To get a complete picture of your health, Holgistic assesses a wide range of possible underlying causes for your symptoms and reasons for increased risk for illness. Your comprehensive evaluation may include:

  • Nutritional status

  • Health history
  • Family history
  • Genetic testing
  • Advanced diagnostic testing
  • Laboratory testing
  • Stress evaluation
  • Mental health assessment
  • Emotional health assessment

They also take inventory of lifestyle or environmental factors that may affect your health. Holgistic uses this information to develop a long-term plan to lower your risks, prevent diseases, support healing, and improve your overall wellness.
