Integrative Medicine Q & A

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative MedicineThirty percent of adults in the U.S. use non-conventional medical treatments. Health care approaches outside of traditional, Western medicine are called “alternative” or “complementary.” Integrative medicine combines conventional and alternative therapies for a more innovative approach to health and wellness.

Integrative medicine has grown in popularity over the last few decades as patients look for care that addresses patients as a whole person, not just a body part, symptom, or condition.
