combines the wisdom of ancient healing with the discipline of modern science. It combines the best of conventional and complementary health care in order to maximize the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The combined knowledge of new and old healing modalities is ultimately superior to a single model approach. Integrative medicine focuses on the whole person, it utilizes all therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
Integrative health care recognizes the healing responsibility as a true partnership between patient and practitioner, addressing healing at all levels, especially lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, stress management, quality of sleep, relationships and work. Health is a personal responsibility, often the simple principle of holistic health maintenance which have been tried and tested for centuries, can yield the best and most cost effective results towards a prolonged and healthy life.
Integrative medicine does not compete with conventional healthcare – rather, it complements and enhances it.
It is important to understand that our humanity is made of four dimensions namely the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual . For people living with chronic or life threatening illnesses, it can transform these dimensions. It is also valuable to those who are not ill but wish to understand and prevent health related problems.
