Integrative Medicine


What is Integrative Medicine?

An individualized approach to healing and achieving the best possible health outcomes.

The terms “complementary” and “alternative” medicine are often used interchangeably but may refer to different types of medicine for different people. Together, they are sometimes referred to by the acronym CAM. Integrative medicine, as defined by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, “combines mainstream medical therapies and CAM therapies for which there is some high-quality scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness.” Integrative medicine treats the whole person with a combination of functional, naturopathic, orthomolecular, and allopathic medicine practices. It is a partnership between the provider and patient to discover the root causes of illness together.
