What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine incorporates evidence-based healing modalities, nutrition and behavioral medicine techniques to enhance conventional medical therapy. It acknowledges the individual's concept of illness and well-being, and through listening and education, engages the individual as an active participant in his or her own healthcare.
