WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE?

Integrative Medicine is a comprehensive and individualized practice of medicine. It has gained popularity in recent years due to it’s success in treating many chronic conditions. It treats each person as a whole instead of concentrating on specific conditions. The great majority of the chronic diseases we are facing today are really symptoms of an underlying problem. Integrative medicine utilizes specialized lab tests as well as lifestyle assessment to detect underlying deficiencies and dysfunctions and provides a personalized treatment plan. 

Integrative Medicine uses holistic and naturopathic remedies as well as prescription medications (but to a much lesser degree and only as a last resort) to restore the body’s own healing abilities.
Integrative Medicine treatments are gentle, yet extremely beneficial and powerful. It is important to mention that “cure” is not always possible, however healing is. Integrative medicine understands that healing from chronic disorders can occur only when the bodily balance is restored, deficiencies are replenished and knowledge is gained. This journey is different for everyone.
