Integrative medicine focuses on a whole person and not just the illness or disease. While it seeks to understand the underlying cause of one’s symptoms or condition, it does so by looking at the complete mind, body and spirit. Integrative medicine uses an evidence-based approach to improve one’s health and wellness.
Integrative medicine believes one’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs affect the health. It believes those needs rely on each other and affect one’s entire well-being. There are many different aspects to address, so integrative medicine uses a combination of therapies and lifestyle changes.
