Integrative Medicine Overview

Integrative medicine is a comprehensive, science-based approach to medical care that draws on the best of many different specialties: natural medicine, allopathic (or conventional) medicine, diagnostic testing, nutrition, metabolism, detoxification, nutritional supplements, customized diets, acupuncture, chiropractic, and massage, among others. In integrative medicine, natural medical therapies are preferred as a way to mimic and enhance the body’s natural, healing abilities while minimizing unwanted side effects.

The focus is to address the underlying causes of illness, not just the symptoms, and to promote health of the whole person- mind, body, and spirit. If you are looking for a different approach to solving many of the medical issues and symptoms that plague millions of people around the world on a daily basis, then consider Progressive Medical Center.

The principles of integrative medicine:

  •     A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
  •     Investigate and address the underlying causes of illness, rather than treating only the symptoms (via diagnostic testing)
  •     Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
  •     Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, body, spirit, and community
  •     A philosophy that critically evaluates and selects conventional medical and alternative therapies based on clinical outcomes and known side effects
  •     Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms
  •     Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible
