Philosophy & Principles
The Integrative Medicine Philosophy
Integrative Medicine holistically embraces conventional medicine and complementary therapies that are based in science. It focuses on the whole person – body, mind, and spirit – with a strong emphasis on the patient/provider partnership. The integrative philosophy believes that health is more than the absence of disease, a person is more that their symptoms, healing requires a whole-person approach and empowered patients make long-term and lasting changes that support healing and optimum health.
Ten Principles of Patient Care
- First do no harm; utilize the most natural, least invasive, and least toxic treatment possible.
- Identify and treat the cause; use the symptoms of disease as clues to identify and treat the underlying causes of illness.
- The healing powers of nature; embrace the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.
- Treat the whole person; approach the body as an integrated whole which includes mind, body, and spirit.
- Doctor as partner; collaborate with your patients, help guide them and personalize their journey to optimal health.
- Doctor as teacher; educate patient on lifestyle changes to achieve and maintain optimal health.
- Prevention; focus on promoting health & wellness now as a way of preventing disease later.
- Patient centered healing; personalize care because it’s about the patient!
- Create a healing environment; provide a calm sanctuary for the patient that both heals and models a healing environment that assists optimal health & wellbeing.
- Embody a caring approach; treat the patient in a loving way which in itself is a very powerful healing force.

“This is my favorite place the get medical attention. Dr. Humiston doesn’t just treat you symptomatically. He treats you holistically. His treatments changed my life. I feel healthier than I did in my teens and twenties. I have high levels of energy, I sleep well, and I don’t feel depressed or have anxiety attacks anymore. He spends quality time working to find the best approach to helping you. He’s genuine and it’s obvious he cares. So if I have to wait a little longer, I’m okay with that since I know he is devoting himself to another patient the same way he will me.”
“When I moved to San Diego more than 10 years ago, one of the first things I tried to find was an integrative medicine practice and I definitely lucked out with CHWB. Dr. Gray always has an accomplished team of practitioners!
You can tell from the minute you walk in this place is top notch. Zee and the rest of the staff always make me feel as if i’m visiting family!”
“I have been a patient of Dr. Grays for many years and can’t say enough great things about her. Very compassionate and caring.”
“This practice offers both traditional medicine and natural medicine. I see Leslie Karr, FNP who brings a functional medicine style, and has a compassionate approach. She helped me with hormone balance, thyroid balance and nutrition, as well as epigenetics! This practice offers it all! Definitely recommend!!”
“I currently went for neck and back pain that I had from an accident and saw Dr. Corey. I left feeling great, both my back & neck stopped hurting.
Ana and the Manager Zee were a big help, they assisted me with all the paperwork that had to be done and attended to me the entire time I was there. Most definitely would go back!”
