Perspective

What Is the Approach of Integrative Medicine?
 

  • Patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.

  • All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.

  • Appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods facilitates the body’s innate healing response.

  • Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be used whenever possible.

  • Integrative medicine neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically.

  • Good medicine is based in good science. It is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.

  • Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.

What Does Treatment with an Integrative Provider Look Like

Integrative Psychiatry focuses on the whole person including  a person's broader concept of health, environment, and psycho-social history. Traditional psychiatry focuses primarily on symptoms and medication which leaves out the majority of factors contributing to mental health complications.

Integrative treatment may include:

Counseling

Nutrition

Lab Testing

Diagnostic Assessments

Medications

Mindfulness

IV Infusions

Lifestyle Counseling

Family Counseling
