Why choose Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine is a branch of medicine that treat patients as a whole person (mind, body, and spirit). It highlights the use of both conventional and alternative/complementary medicine to facilitate the natural healing process of the human body. This branch of medicine would always opt for a more natural and less invasive approach to health with the assurance that the treatment is scientifically backed. It also promises a better partnership between healthcare providers and patients during treatment.
Over the years, people are increasingly dissatisfied with the Western healthcare system that is perceived to be too focused on the disease and not enough on the patients’ wellness. Integrative medicine seem to be the answer to this dilemma that has been provoking both healthcare providers and patients. There are also many studies done to explore the evidence of the mind-body connection and the ways this will impact the treatment of patients. The inclusive nature of integrative medicine seem to point that this healthcare model is the way to go in the future.
