PHILOSOPHY

Integrative Medicine combines the diagnostic skills of traditional Western medicine with alternative and complementary therapies. A true holistic approach is centered on treating you, not your disease. It encompasses the emotional and spiritual, in addition to physical aspects of your well-being.

Each person is unique in genetics and biochemistry. To understand the source of your symptoms, together we must thoroughly understand who you are and the underlying causes of your condition. We evaluate the effects of unseen toxins: chemicals, toxic metals, infectious agents such as hidden viruses, and bacteria.

We explore various option in healing these conditions such as detoxification and nutritional balancing. Detoxification helps rid your body of substances that can be harmful to you. Nutritional balancing can help you to become healthier by restoring nutrients, relieving deficiencies, and eliminating foods to which you may be sensitive. By removing what may be impairing normal function and restoring nutrients, we can optimize your body’s healing ability.
