Integrative medicine (IM) is a healing-oriented approach that takes into account all aspects of someone's lifestyle, including their overall health. IM focuses on the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is rooted in research, and utilizes the full range of therapies available.
IM provides a practical framework for using the best of conventional and alternative or complementary health care practices. IM is effective in treating many common issues that people face, including pain management. IM encourages patients to take an active role in their own healing process.
Integrative medicine views the biological, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental, and other dimensions of each individual as a whole – and bases its treatments on this view.
Integrative medicine (IM) seeks to understand the individual as a whole and applies a variety of therapies to improve wellness, as opposed to functional medicine, which focuses on treating underlying causes of illness. Integrative medicine typically uses a combination of conventional and complementary therapies, while functional medicine is more likely to use only complementary therapies.
One of the main goals of integrative medicine is to prevent chronic disease by promoting healthy lifestyles. This includes diet, exercise, stress management, and sleep hygiene. Integrative medicine also seeks to identify and address any potential underlying causes of disease using traditional medical tests and procedures.
Complementary or alternative therapies—which include acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, meditation, massage therapy, naturopathy, therapeutic touch, yoga —are those practices that fall outside of the realm of conventional Western medicine. Integrative therapies may use some types of complementary and/or alternative therapies as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
Integrative medicine strategies include mind-body techniques, such as meditation and yoga, to help reduce stress. Chronic stress has been linked to various health problems, including obesity, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, depression, asthma, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, infertility in women—the list goes on.
