Integrative Medicine designs a healing plan based on the whole person, working from head to toe, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.
How you can use integrative medicine! When your body is out of sync, you may find a list of chronic nuances. These include things like acid reflux, headaches, joint pains, constipation, IBS, sore throat, allergies, congestion, or waking up in the night. Maybe you think these little ailments trite.. You may have lived with these complaints for years and only want to focus on more important things like heart disease, inflamed gallbladder, high blood pressure or cancer.
All those “little irritations” are a sign that your body needs an adjustment. Integrated medicine understands the imbalances and creates a personal plan to resolve underlying issues and the root of your chief complaints.
For anything to grow and thrive, it needs the right conditions!
Before western medicine, humans lived off the earth. We survived by basic primal principles. Back in the no mad days, if we were running hot, we knew the cool herbs and foods to balance the heat. Every food has an energetic property. Our body has an amazing way of healing. We just need the right tools.
Always be an advocate for your health and your life. Take the tools you learn from an integrative physician and find what works with you to make the strongest body you can have.
Integrated Medicine includes:
Looking at blood work and if necessary ordering the right nutritional work up you need.
Reviewing each organ system and asking all the questions… who… what…. when… where… why. This includes your sleep, pain, digestion, emotions and lung capacity.

Mary Devereaux’s first acupuncture experience!
My journey into the world of acupuncture began as a last resort. After enduring years of chronic pain and failed attempts with conventional treatments, I found myself searching for an alternative solution. Skeptical yet desperate for relief, I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Little did I know that this decision would change my life forever.
Walking into the acupuncture clinic, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of apprehension. Like many others, I had an aversion to needles. However, as soon as the acupuncture session began, My preconceived notions vanished. The needles used in acupuncture were unlike any I had ever encountered. They were incredibly thin and delicate, causing minimal discomfort upon insertion. I realized that the fear of needles had overshadowed the incredible healing properties of acupuncture.
To my astonishment, the acupuncture therapy provided me with the relief I had been desperately seeking. The pain that had plagued me for years gradually diminished, allowing me to regain a sense of freedom and vitality. The transformative power of acupuncture inspired me to delve deeper into the field. Driven by my personal experience, I embarked on a remarkable journey of becoming an acupuncture physician, dedicating myself to helping others discover the healing potential of this ancient practice.
My story is a testament to the profound impact acupuncture can have on one’s life. It serves as a reminder that, despite initial reservations, being open to alternative approaches can lead to unexpected breakthroughs. The needles used in acupuncture may evoke apprehension, but they are far from the painful experiences associated with conventional injections. My personal journey is a testament to the remarkable healing properties of acupuncture, and my dedication as an acupuncture physician embodies my passion for sharing this transformative therapy with others in need.
