What Is Integrative Medicine?

According to JAMA Internal Medicine, 25% of American adults do not have a primary care physician. If you’re among this group and you’re seeking a more holistic approach to health care, consider the whole-person approach of integrative medicine.

At Concierge IV Nutrition in Beverly Hills, California, our naturopathic and integrative medicine physicians embrace an evidence-based, all-encompassing philosophy of health care. Integrative medicine emphasizes a partnership between doctor and patient in the quest for wellness in mind, body, and spirit.

Integrative medicine is personalized care

You are unique in your circumstances and we, as naturopathic and integrative physicians, take that into consideration when creating your treatment plan. We get to know you as a person who is part of a family and part of a community.

Based on your individual conditions, health goals, family history, and lifestyle, we help you achieve your best self — physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Integrative medicine is holistic

Grounded in research and science, the integrative medicine approach to your health and well-being acknowledges that you’re a whole person, not just a medical concern. In that vein, our integrative physicians view your body in terms of all its systems working together to keep you healthy.

So, when you experience a “dis-ease” in your physical body, we work with you to help you heal, taking into consideration your emotional health, your spiritual well-being, and your unique circumstances in your community.

The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Integrative medicine embraces these principles and therefore seeks to treat health concerns through a variety of traditional medical and complementary treatments.

We use all types of healing sciences to help reduce your pain, improve your health, and increase your overall vitality.

Integrative medicine takes the most natural approach

Whenever possible, integrative medicine seeks to apply the most natural, noninvasive treatments to your illness or health issue. Our doctors believe that conventional medicine is equally important to natural, alternative treatments and can therefore be prescribed together. These complementary methods may include:

An integrative medicine approach to wellness also focuses on helping you prevent illness and promote better overall health. We see the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership. In your journey of healing, you take steps to recover and stay well under our professional medical guidance and support.

When you embrace this holistic approach to your own health and well-being, you may notice that over time, you’re sleeping less fitfully, feeling more energetic, losing weight, and even finding that you’re better able to focus better at work. The advantages of integrative medicine are boundless at any age and stage of life.
