Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is a multimodality approach to healthcare that combines conventional Western medicine with TCAM (traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine therapies) to provide holistic treatments and address the cause of disease not just the symptoms.

 
This approach emphasizes the importance of patient - practitioner relationship and takes into account the physical, mental, emotional, social, and environmental influences that affect health.
 
Here are some key aspects of integrative medicine:
 

1) Holistic Care: Considers the person as a whole and addresses different aspects of life including diet, exercise, lifestyle, rather than focusing solely on the disease in the body.

 
2) Personalized Treatment: Treatments are tailored to the individual's unique needs and preferences.
 
3) Combination of Therapies: Integrates conventional treatments (like medication and surgery) with complementary therapies (such as Ayurveda, homeopathy, acupuncture, cupping therapy, yoga, naturopathy and the use of natural herbal and mineral preparations).
 
4) Prevention and Wellness: Emphasizes prevention of disease and the promotion of healthy lifestyles to maintain wellness and prevent disease.
 
5) Patient-Centered Care: Involves patients in their own care, encouraging them to participate actively in their treatment plans.
 

Integrative medicine practices include the use of Ayurvedic Medicine, Medical Cupping (Hijama), Chinese and Japanese acupuncture, meditation for stress reduction, dietary natural supplements for nutritional support.
