What you eat, how you manage stress, your physical activity, sleep quality, and your relationship with others and your community all play a role in determining life-long wellness as much (and sometimes more!) than inherited causes of disease.
Much of Western medicine aims to fix problems once they arise, but researchers are beginning to realize that healthy habits set early in life reduce the risk of diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and dementia. Perhaps you consider yourself healthy and want to remain so. Or maybe you've already been diagnosed with high cholesterol and want to know what else can be done besides taking a statin.
your health is the most valuable asset you have
You've established a career, maybe started a family, or are caring for aging parents. Maybe these and other life changes have made you realize the need to engage a financial planner to assure future fiscal stability. Why wouldn't you do the same when it comes to your health?
Integrative Medicine comes alongside conventional healthcare, helping you maximize your innate healing potential now and for your future.
ONE size does not fit all when it comes to your health
The amount of information available with a swipe or click is overwhelming. How do you sort out what mindfulness practice is right for you? What supplements are helpful, and which ones only drain your bank account while offering no benefit--or worse, might even harm?
We are your trusted partner, and together we'll chart a course for you that is personalized, cutting through the hype and hyperbole. Care that begins in relationship between you and your Integrative Medicine provider leads to lasting, actionable changes tailored to your needs.
HOW INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE CAN HELP
Integrative medicine is particularly effective because it employs the use of multiple modalities to intervene before ill health takes hold.
What you eat affects your mood. How you sleep impacts the immune system. A balanced autonomic nervous system leads to reduced risk of chronic disease. By engaging with an Integrative practitioner, all these factors are brought to light, empowering you to live a healthier life.
And, if your primary care physician is already treating you for things like high blood pressure, thyroid dysfunction, digestive diseases, or early diabetes, then we can talk about how Integrative techniques support your conventional treatment.
HOW WE HELP
a tailored wellness plan
You're interested in practices that can improve not only your current state of health, but can decrease the risk of developing cancer, or diabetes, or Alzheimer's dementia years from now. A single comprehensive Integrative Medicine assessment and care plan may be enough to set you on the right track.
Or maybe, realizing it takes time to set new habits, you're ready to embark on a longer journey. We can partner with you over six months or even a year, helping you enact your comprehensive care plan and chart a course for improved health both now and into the future.
