Integrative medicine is a field of medicine that emphasizes the use of BOTH conventional and complimentary treatments to improve health and well-being. Examples of complimentary therapies would include nutrition, exercise, mind-body practices like stress reduction and relaxation techniques, herbal products and other supplements, attention to spirituality, and physical modalities like osteopathic manipulation and massage. Integrative Medicine emphasizes prevention and helps people look at all factors in their lives that may influence health, wellness and disease, including body, mind, spirit and environment. Physicians who practice integrative medicine consider the use of ALL potentially useful practices and therapies to improve health and wellbeing, offering a blend of the best of traditional western medicine and complementary or alternative therapies, focusing on the safest and most effective treatment options.
