What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine brings together traditional medicine and natural medicine rather than just implementing only one of these modalities/perspectives. There are several fellowship programs available for health care providers interested in Integrative Medicine. Integrative Medicine practitioners appreciate that each branch of medicine has something to offer and there are times when a blend is appropriate and other times when one modality may fit more than another. Additionally, they view the relationship between patient and physician as a partnership and seek to evaluate and treat the whole person (mind/body/spirit).
