Practicing Integrative Medicine enables me to give people these strategies. Medicine that is integrative is healing-oriented, as opposed to being focused purely on disease management. It also focuses on individuals as being more than just physical bodies, paying attention to the mental, emotional, spiritual, relational, even energetic aspects of who they are as well. Knowing a person this way, I can then devise tools to bring about better balance and wholeness in all of these areas.
Having an understanding of alternative therapies as well as conventional medical methods then allows me to look for treatments that might be more affordable, less toxic and just as or more effective than first using drugs or surgery. If we need them, fine. It’s my job to guide individuals through the maze of confusion and misinformation surrounding which methods to use. My training and experience allows me to discern the good from the bad so that I can help individuals find the right match of therapies, practices, vitamins, supplements and herbs, combining them with the best of conventional methods to move closer towards health and healing and ultimately feeling beautiful.
This column will give you some of that advice, and I look forward to helping you reach your optimum health and beauty.
