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.
