Integrated Medicine (also called Integrative Medicine) is a modern concept of complementary and alternative medicine which refers to the combination of conventional medicine with complementary medicine, such as acupuncture, homoeopathy, reflexology, hypnotherapy or mindfulness, for instance. It emphasises the combination rather than substitution. By combining different health care modalities, side effects of medication can be minimised or even avoided and health and healing are maximised.
Holistic Medicine focuses on you as a whole person, your individuality and includes your body, mind and spirit. 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 holistic therapeutical approach.
Integrative 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.

Integrated medicine is an evidence-based CAM using a holistic health approach, unlikely conventional medicine that addressed your symptoms and not the underlying causes.
A whole person is a combination of physical, mental and emotional facets. Our bodies are like clocks, with the different parts working synergistically. If one part malfunctions, the rest are being affected. In addition, our mind and our emotions also have an impact on our bodies. This is why holistic medicine might be the answer you are seeking. Integrated medicine is the integration of conventional medicine together with complementary approaches. It may also be called holistic medicine, since it looks at the person as a whole. Holistic medicine will explore the mental, emotional and physical states of you and help you to regain the missing balance in your life.
I am an integrated medicine practitioner and I provide consultations in holistic treatments and Integrative medicine.
From my medical experience, I realised that a healthy person requires a holistic approach to include mind and body, which led me to become a fully trained integrated medicine doctor. This integrative approach brings real and lasting health benefits as it focuses on the cause of disease, rather than just the superficial removal of symptoms.
As an integrated practitioner, my ultimate goal is to help you to enjoy your life to your fullest capacity, where your entire wellbeing is restored to the natural state it was created in.
Our integrated medicine clinic is located in central London and therefore is easily accessible by public transport. In our Holistic healthcare clinic, I use an integrated approach to provide you with the best health and wellbeing support, tailored to your specific needs.
It is very easy to book an integrated medicine appointment in our clinic. You can request an appointment by filling in our appointment form or call us to arrange a suitable time.
Although both approaches are categorised under alternative and complementary medicine, functional medicine is not the same as Integrated Medicine. The integrated approach is evidence-based combining traditional medicine and complementary care. You can read more on our blog here.
Many people seek help for their health issues using healthcare approaches developed outside conventional medicine. When people are referring to these approaches, use the terms alternative and complementary medicine interchangeably. These two terms, however, have different meanings.
Complementary medicine is a treatment being used to complement current conventional medicine and therefore can be combined or integrated with the current medical treatment, and therefore it is called integrated medicine or integrative medicine.
Alternative medicine is a treatment being used in place of conventional medicine.
So with the above definitions, complementary medicine is not alternative medicine.
Going back in time, in the 1970s and 1980s, various healthcare approaches provided as an alternative to conventional medicine became known collectively as “alternative medicine.” Slowly, however, alternative medicine started to be used alongside and combined with conventional medicine. “Complementary” therefore describes this relation, which can explain some of the confusion that surrounds the subject.
