The Benefits of Integrative Medicine
Integrative medicine combines Western medicine and alternative therapies to focus on the whole person to promote healing and good health. Combining therapies offers more avenues for physicians to identify the best treatment options for various illnesses.
Integrative medicine acknowledges the value of patient and practitioner relationship in improving the patient’s overall healthcare journey. Coordinating all of a patient’s care is a vital component of the integrative medicine approach. At KadileAtric Power Principle®, we want you to understand the benefits of integrative medicine.
Benefits of Integrative Medicine
Focuses on the Cause of Illness — Traditional medicine doctors will treat the symptoms you have at the moment. Yes, you’ll get relief, but the problem is masked, not solved. Practitioners of naturopathic medicine will also treat your symptoms to comfort you, but it doesn’t stop there. They’ll diagnose and manage the source of your problem by looking beyond the symptoms.
Partners in Health — Traditional doctors may render a diagnosis, prescribe medication, and not really include you in the process. Integrative medicine doctors know that to heal you, they need to know you. The doctor and patient become partners in the patient’s long-term healthcare.
Addresses Chronic Illnesses — People with chronic health issues may suffer because traditional medicine can’t identify the actual cause of their illness. The integrative medicine approach is to repair imbalances and return the body to proper function. Most times, the results are a reduction or elimination of symptoms because the body is now in balance.
Personal Care — Traditional doctors rarely get to spend much time with their patients. They set their schedules up to move them quickly from patient to patient. Integrative medicine requires a more personal approach, and the extra time and attention often yield faster results for the patients.
Patients seek integrative medicine practitioners for different reasons. Many find it aligns with their beliefs about living a higher quality of life by achieving optimal health.
