Integrative healthcare manifests as:


  • Healing-oriented medicine that takes into account the whole person: body, mind, spirit, family, community and environment


  • Openness to combining conventional and complementary medical approaches based in good science 


  • Active participation by patients in their own healthcare


Integrative medicine promotes optimal health and disease prevention by focusing on diet and lifestyle factors, as well as carefully selected complementary therapies, alongside appropriate conventional care.
