"The essence of integrative medicine is to restore the focus to health and healing"
Dr. Andrew Weil
WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE?
Integrative and functional medicine combines the best of conventional medicine with evidence-based holistic therapies. It views the body has an interconnected system and values the relationship between lifestyle, nutrition, mind and spirit to physical health. We use advanced speciality testing to determine root causes and individual treatments to promote healing.
Dr. Andrew Weil, arguably the father of Integrative medicine defines integrative medicine as,
"Integrative Medicine (IM) is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies."
