5 reasons to see an integrative doctor

  1. HOLISTIC APPROACH. Integrative practitioners see the integration between physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of health. They take into account relationships, social interactions, environmental factors and past events to have a complete view of all the factors involved in health and disease.


  1. INTEGRATED CARE. An Integrative medicine physician has learned the appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods, facilitating the body’s innate healing response. The provider will identify what natural methods, supplements or medications are more convenient for your case, having in mind evidence-based knowledge and avoiding negative herb-medicine interactions. 


  1. FIND THE CAUSE. Integrative and functional medicine are focused on the root of the disease, not just alleviating the symptoms. Many negative factors influence the body and progressively cause imbalances. If not treated on time, those imbalances can lead to diseases and generate symptoms as a final sign of attention. Treating the symptoms only addresses one aspect of the disease; finding the cause and correcting as many negative factors identifiable will create the appropriate foundation to regenerate the body and reestablish a good level of health. 


  1. LIFESTYLE ORIENTED. Adopting new healthier habits may protect you from health problems as obesity and diabetes. An integrative doctor will help you create a plan to make minor changes in your lifestyle to get a major benefit for your health. Eating healthy, regular physical activity, mindfulness, and others strategies can make a difference in your health. 


  1. WORK AS A TEAM. An integrative physician is your teammate in the path of getting your best health score. Instead of giving you just a prescription, the integrative practitioner collaborates with you during the ups and downs of the process, giving you advice, changing strategies, adapting to new environments that will provide you with the confidence to a successful outcome.
