What is integrative medicine?

default

Integrative medicine combines conventional medicine with evidence-informed complementary medicine and therapies to achieve the optimum health and wellbeing of the patient. Focusing on a holistic, patient-centred approach to healthcare, it takes into consideration the patient’s physical and psychological wellbeing and treats the whole person rather than just the disease.

Conventional practitioners, who practise integrative medicine, advocate the use of evidence-informed lifestyle, complementary and traditional approaches combined with conventional medicines to provide an integrative approach. Complementary medicine and therapies can include anything from acupuncture, yoga, massage, aromatherapy, herbal medicine, nutrition, exercise along with many more approaches, tailored to the needs of the individual.
