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.
What is Integrative and Alternative Health Care?
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.
