Being healthy is more than the absence of disease. It is a sense of balance and fulfilment in the physical, emotional, spiritual and social aspects of our lives. Integrative medicine aims to address core imbalance issues, using tools and techniques appropriate to each individual.
The scientific model has led to great understanding of the pathophysiological basis of disease and brought enormous health benefits to all of us. Subspecialisation of medical care has facilitated the application of a wealth of new information successfully. Unfortunately, this approach does not work so well for chronic disease, that involves more than one single part of the body.
Integrative medicine is practiced across many disciplines and throughout history. As the pendulum of accepted medical practice swings from one extreme to the other, we are seeing a shift towards accepting the benefits of combining external physical and technological medical successes and cures with internal non-physical explorations of healing. Integrative medicine focuses on fixing the whole person, not just “fixing a part”, it is based on good science and neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative practices uncritically.
Integrative medicine uses the best possible treatments from both allopathic medicine and complimentary or alternative medicines, based on the individual’s needs and condition.

The World Health Organisation defines health as a state of “complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.
I invite you to lead your best healthy life with a combination of internal medicine and integrative medicine.
