Integrative Medicine is defined as an approach to care that seeks to incorporate the best of Western scientific medicine with a broader understanding of the nature of illness, healing, and wellness. It treats the whole person by examining lifestyle, relationships, diet and state of mind while offering treatment options that support the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Integrative Medicine emphasizes patient empowerment and prevention by better controlling symptoms such as anxiety, stress, pain, nausea, insomnia and fatigue and offering dietary and lifestyle changes that can relieve or even reverse the effects of chronic diseases.
True healing is not limited to physical recovery, but must also include a recovery of mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
The number of Americans using Integrative Medicine has steadily increased over the past decade. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine estimates that approximately 40% of Americans use some form of Integrative Medicine. Evidence exists to suggest that, when delivered in combination with your regular medical care, Integrative Medicine can benefit people with the following ailments:
· Heart disease

· Irritable Bowel Syndrome
