Integrative Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.
Our patients are treated holistically, we assess your individual needs and listen to your concerns and goals for well-being. Our practitioners are trained in both conventional and complementary therapies and offer a professionally guided whole-person approach to your health care.
A program will be customized for you based on your unique profile. At your initial consultation with the Integrative Physician you will discuss the assessments and protocol to best suit your biology and health goals for your individual program. Note that not all of the listed assessment and therapies will necessarily be a part of the comprehensive plan, because of the individuality of the patient.
You will receive a professionally guided approach that takes into account multiple aspects of your health and lifestyle. We combine a range of therapies to provide you with an integrative plan, especially beneficial for chronic and complex medical conditions.
A Health Coach will help you succeed in your journey towards health and wellness. Everyone needs support, and guidance at different points in their lives, and this can be particularly true during the time of a health crisis.

Your Health Coach will take the time to understand the emotional, mental, and physical sides of the health journey and will be there to coach and guide you on the way.

Digestion problems like bloating, pain after eating, gas, burping, constipation, and diarrhea are one of the main categories of symptoms suffered by almost all of us. These symptoms are often associated with ongoing inflammation affecting the intestine. The inflammation often leads to a disorder of gut permeability (“leaky gut”) which allows large protein molecules and bacteria to pass from our gut into our systemic circulation and to distant body parts where cascading inflammation can contribute to a variety of systemic inflammatory conditions.
We can no longer continue to diminish the benefits of natural medicine when people have experienced great benefits transcending time and geographical location. We must embrace a new paradigm in healthcare; there are new advanced biotechnologies and modalities for the analysis and repair of the human body. The body-field is the master control system for the physical body. It is the responsibility of the physicians to remain informed, scientific, researchers, advocates, and to do no harm. Patients often complain of not spending enough time with their doctors, not being ab0le to reach them in need, being placed on many medications, and not understanding the root cause of their illnesses. Let us return to the kind of medicine that places the patient at the center of the medical team.

Integrative health care brings conventional and complementary approaches together in a coordinated way. It emphasizes a holistic, patient-focused approach to health care and wellness—often including mental, emotional, functional, spiritual, social, and community aspects—and treating the whole person rather than, for example, one organ system. It aims for well-coordinated care between different providers and institutions.
