5 Reasons to Choose an Integrative Doctor for Primary Care

Posted by on Tue, Jan 27, 2015

A primary care provider is a family physician, internist, or nurse practitioner who coordinates all of the health care a patient receives. The holistic primary care model offers not only traditional primary care but also incorporates the best of complementary and alternative healing therapies from around the world to help you achieve optimum wellness, not just freedom from disease.

Our holistic primary care providers will be your partner and guide in helping you achieve your health goals.

Top 5 Reasons for Integrative Medicine

1. We treat the whole person

The mind, body and spirit all contribute to your health status and wellness. An integrative MD or Nurse Practitioner will develop a treatment plan that addresses your medical needs as well as your emotional and nutritional well-being. Stress management, diet, and lifestyle factors all play a role in your overall health.

2. Integrative medicine treats the cause of imbalance, not just the symptoms

You are not just a collection of your symptoms.  We look for the root cause of your imbalance or illness and develop a plan, with you, to remedy the cause. We can test for factors which may be contributing to illness or imbalance, and work with you to correct the underlying cause.

3. We partner with you to develop a plan for optimal health

Integrative medicine is patient-centered. You are your own best advocate, but it is nice to have a partner with the same goal of getting you to a better state of wellness. Since integrative medicine works to address the cause of illness, it may take longer than a "quick fix" often expected with prescription medication. This is to be expected, but with a longer appointment the practitioner is able to listen and work with you to keep you moving in the right direction.

Have You Tried Everything to Get Rid of Carpal Tunnel?

Posted by on Mon, Jul 16, 2012

Wrist braces, physical therapy, rest, ergonomic work stations. 

You may have tried them all with little to no success for relief from carpal tunnel syndrome. The reason why it is not working is because most people, and even health practitioners, don’t understand where carpal tunnel comes from.  All people know is that their wrist hurts or their hands are going numb and they want it fixed because it greatly affects their lives.
