One thing that really caught my attention was the talk about Integrative Medicine.

What Is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine, which is also called integrated medicine and integrative health in the United Kingdom,combines alternative medicine with evidence-based medicine. Practitioners claim that it treats the “whole person,” focuses on wellness and health rather than on treating disease, and emphasizes the patient-physician relationship.

Integrative medicine has been criticized for compromising the effectiveness of mainstream medicine through inclusion of ineffective alternative remedies, for claiming it is distinctive in taking a rounded view of a person’s health.

Experts explore new ways to treat the mind, body, and spirit — all at the same time.
Many people have never heard of integrative medicine, but this holistic movement has left its imprint on many of the nation’s hospitals, universities, and medical schools.

Treating the Whole Person
Both doctors and patients alike are bonding with the philosophy of integrative medicine and its whole-person approach — designed to treat the person, not just the disease.

IM, as it’s often called, depends on a partnership between the patient and the doctor, where the goal is to treat the mind, body, and spirit, all at the same time.

While some of the therapies used may be nonconventional, a guiding principle within integrative medicine is to use therapies that have some high-quality evidence to support them.

Conventional and Alternative Approaches

Integrative Medicine is a classic model of integrative care. It combines conventional Western medicine with alternative or complementary treatments, such as herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, biofeedback, yoga, and stress reduction techniques — all in the effort to treat the whole person. Proponents prefer the term “complementary” to emphasize that such treatments are used with mainstream medicine, not as replacements or alternatives.

What makes integrative medicine appealing? Advocates point to deep dissatisfaction with a health care system that often leaves doctors feeling rushed and overwhelmed and patients feeling as if they’re nothing more than diseased livers or damaged joints. Integrative medicine seems to promise more time, more attention, and a broader approach to healing — one that is not based solely on the Western biomedical model, but also draws from other cultures.

Patients want to be considered whole human beings in the context of their world.

The Mind-Body Connection

A researcher who has done groundbreaking work on interactions between the brain and the immune system, says technological breakthroughs in science during the past decade have convinced even skeptics that the mind-body connection is real.

Physicians and academic researchers finally have the science to understand the connection between the brain and the immune system, emotions and disease. All of that we can now finally understand in terms of sophisticated biology.

That newfound knowledge may help doctors to see why an integrative approach is important. Visit them  at UG11, CPT Condominium, Calle Estacion, Makati City (In Front of PNR Pasay Road Station).
