Integrative medicine considers Total Health: mind, body, spirit

A “total health” approach to medicine

An all-encompassing approach, integrative medicine follows these core principles:

  1. Always consider the health of the whole person and that each person is unique;
  2. Use wisdom and best practices from multiple healing disciplines in determining how to help someone reach optimal health.
