About Integrative Medicine
Integrative Medicine emphasizes a partnership between physician and patient. It considers all factors which influence health, wellness and disease. This includes mind, body, spirit and community. Integrative Medicine believes in using the least invasive therapies first, allowing the innate healing process of the body to function maximally. It does not reject conventional therapies, and does not accept alternative therapies uncritically. It is inquiry driven, and emphasizes prevention and health promotion.
