Integrative Medicine is a term used to describe a treatment approach that combines standard western medical knowledge with an array of complementary strategies aimed at improving health.   The combination of standard medical knowledge and complementary approaches frequently provides an improved opportunity for success when treating patients with difficult or chronic disease states. 


Often, a chronic state of illness is perceived by the patient as having a diminished sense of well being or lost capacity for normal ease in activities of daily living.  Integrative approaches are aimed at improving health on all levels—body, mind and spirit—and to get patients “back on track” with their lives.


As a physician involved with Integrative Medicine, my responsibility first and foremost is to evaluate each patient as an individual with their own unique constitutional physical and emotional makeup.   Furthermore, consideration of environmental, nutritional and lifestyle factors are necessary when employing an integrative approach.  Every patient is evaluated as a unique individual with attention to their own situation. 


Most people know when their bodies have made a change for the worse.  Most people don’t know why. I will take the time to help figure this out and will work with each patient to find a solution for their health concerns.
