Integrative Medicine provides a comprehensive approach where all root causes and treatment options can be evaluated in relation to the patient. Some of the approaches that are combined with Integrative Medicine are Nutrition, Functional Medicine, Ayurveda, Bioregulatory Medicine, Chinese Medicine, Herbalism, Naturopathy and Orthomolecular Medicine.
Integrative Medicine looks at the person as a whole, not just at the symptoms that are being presented. Therefore even if a patient does not have a diagnosis but knows that something is not right in their body an Integrative Health Practitioner will still be able to help evaluate possible root causes and therapy options.
