Integrative Medicine does not limit its definition of health to simply the absence of disease, but rather views health as the sum of your whole well-being ─ mentally, emotionally, and physically. It considers your lifestyle and environment and examines how they are influencing your health.
The integrative approach to wellness works with you to create an environment and lifestyle that will not only help in the recovery from disease, but will promote health through your entire lifespan.
Treatment options include traditional medicine practices, but alternative medical therapies that have evidence supporting their merit, are also utilized. Healing therapies such as acupuncture, therapeutic massage, homeopathy, or the use of botanicals and supplements are used to enhance well-being and standard medical care.

Integrative Medicine Physician Consultations
A consultation with an integrative medicine physician is different from a conventional visit with a physician. Integrative medicine evaluates all aspects of your lifestyle as part of diagnosing and prescribing treatment. A consultation would include a review of your medications and medical history, as well as examining your physical habits, emotional patterns, sleep, social life, spiritual life, stress, activity, and diet when diagnosing and prescribing treatment. Treatment plans may combine a wide range of both conventional and complementary therapies (yoga, acupuncture, botanicals, spinal manipulation, supplements, etc.) and address all aspects of your health and wellness ─ physical, emotional, and spiritual.
The goal is to help you recover from illness or disease, and most importantly, help you create a way of living that will promote your body’s natural healing mechanisms and sustain your health and well-being through your entire life span. Integrative medicine is a comprehensive approach that addresses the underlying causes of conditions such as: chronic pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, auto-immune diseases, inflammation, allergies, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, insomnia, fibromyalgia, insulin resistance, neurologic issues, headaches, ADD/ADHD, preconception and reproductive wellness, menopause, or anxiety/depression.
Initial Consult $250, $125 for follow-up visits
