Chances are if you have landed here, you are already somewhat savvy to the practices of Integrative Medicine and Holistic Healthcare. But, for the sake of discussion please read on.

While you are likely familiar with the practices of integrative medicine, and may already have experienced holistic healthcare, here are three things you may not know:

holistic healthcare1. Holistic Medicine is the art and science that addresses the whole person: body, mind, and spirit

These philosophies are the foundation on which The Center for Health and Wellbeing (CHWB) is built.  Combining conventional Western medicine with integrative and holistic complementary treatments, such as naturopathic and oriental medicine, acupuncture, massage, chiropractic treatments, IV therapies, diet and nutrition, all in the effort to treat the whole person.

2. Integrative Medicine combines conventional Western medicine and complementary therapies 

Each Provider at CHWB shares the idea of incorporating integrative therapies into their conventional treatment plans and help patients maintain or regain optimal health and happiness. We help you recognize the significance of lifestyle choices, and understand environmental effects on your health, nutritional choices, the importance of managing stress and quality sleep, having healthy relationships, and getting enough physical activity.

3. The term complementary is used to emphasize that holistic treatments are used with mainstream medicine, not necessarily as replacements or alternatives

Patients with complicated medical problems frequently choose integrative internal medicine because they are seeking to reduce their medications, avoid side effects of medications, or supplement their care in some capacity.  In many cases, integrative medicine can relieve symptoms that weren’t alleviated through conventional medicine alone. Most of the patients that visit CHWB come seeking a preventative, holistic approach to their health.

The best part of all of this is CHWB accepts most health insurance plans, unique for a practice like ours. If you have wanted to explore a different approach to your healthcare, give us a call. We will be happy to see you! 619-814-5500
