What is Integrated Medicine?
Integrated Medicine (also called Integrative Medicine) is a modern concept which refers to the combination of conventional medicine with complementary medicine, such as acupuncture, homoeopathy, reflexology, hypnotherapy or mindfulness, for instance. It emphasises on the combination rather than substitution. By combining different health care approaches, the side effects of medication can be minimised or even avoided and benefits are maximised.
Integrated Medicine focuses on you as a whole person and your individuality. Although we are all human beings, you have your own way to react to external influences such as virus, bacteria, toxins or even emotional conflicts, and you deserve an individualised therapeutical approach.
Integrated Medicine also values the relationship between healthcare professionals and patients. Communication, empathy, and attention are some of its most imperative requirements. Understanding your concern(s), and going to the roots of the problem(s) makes addressing the causes much more effective.
