Integrative medicine is a healing approach that works alongside traditional medicine and compliments the conventional approach, yet makes use of a much broader selection of therapeutic approaches inclusive of all natural elements to achieve optimal health and healing. In addition to allowing us to offer patients a much broader range of healing options, integrative medicine utilizes specialized diagnostic techniques and testing. Integrative medicine attempts to account for the individual being in its entirety, taking into careful consideration all bio-psycho-social factors that play into ones illness, with the absolute goal of optimizing the life experience.
