What Is Integrative Medicine?
Health care models that seek to treat the whole person have had many names over the years. Holistic care, natural health care, and CAM are some example. Integrative medicine is part of this family of models and aligns excellently with our vision of wellness and restoring our patients to their highest level of health.
As noted by the Duke Integrative Medicine group, “Integrative medicine seeks to restore and maintain health and wellness across a person’s lifespan by understanding the patient’s unique set of circumstances and addressing the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect health. Through personalizing care, integrative medicine goes beyond the treatment of symptoms to address all the causes of an illness.”
Having your health care providers all in one place makes sense in terms of convenience and easy access. Therefore, Alpine Valley Wellness Center offers a team of primary care providers and other associates with expertise in a variety of fields. These fields include integrative health care, acupuncture, pain management, health coaching, naturopathic medicine, and integrative counseling. We also work collaboratively with numerous medical professionals, institutions such as Confluence Health, high quality diagnostic laboratories, and non-medical health care associates in order to provide optimal care for our patients.
