Integrative Medicine Consultation
An integrative approach is right for anyone who wishes to be proactive about feeling vital while using strategies that start with the least invasive approach. Our integrative physicians work in conjunction with your primary care doctor to create an individualized, truly integrative care plan.
We start by listening so we can better understand you need, working with you to create a customized, proactive, long-term health plan to address your particular health concerns and achieve your individual goals. This process respects the innate potential your body has for repair and healing.
An integrative consultation is usually an hour long appointment (any additional appointments are usually 30 minutes). Your practitioner will:
- Take a detailed history
- Review medications/supplements
- Review diet and lifestyle factors like sleep, stress level, and social support systems.
- Work with you to develop personal health goals together based on things that are most important to you.
Integrative modalities like acupuncture, massage, yoga therapy, and nutrition could be recommended to empower you to make positive lifestyle changes, usually in conjunction with other treatment plans, medications, radiation, and/or surgeries you might require.
Recommendations may include conventional care as well as integrative treatments such as:
- Nutrition counseling
- Yoga therapy
- Other mind-body therapies.
