What are the Benefits of a Integrative Medicine Consultation

Back

Our integrative health consultations can be life-changing especially if you have a condition that feels mysterious or intimidating to you. Oftentimes our experience with allopathic medicine can feel unsupportive, where we are told “nothing is wrong with you” despite lingering symptoms. Or being told, “this prescription/surgery is our only option”. This disconnects you from your body and makes you feel like you are not in control. In contrast, our approach is to help you understand what is going on in your body, explaining principles of physiology in easy-to-understand terms and pointing out patterns that help explain your symptoms. Most importantly, we help you create a plan that works for YOU to help you reach your wellness goals within the constraints of your unique lifestyle, budget, and schedule. We pledge to respect you as a whole individual, and to assist you as you manifest the life of wellbeing you deserve.

Your practitioner will help explain the physiology of your body in easy-to-understand terms that will provide you a deeper understanding of how your body functions ideally, as compared to any imbalances you may be experiencing. It is very empowering to learn possible sources of your symptoms, so you feel like your condition is less mysterious and more manageable. You will also be provided with a reasonable, easy-to-follow treatment plan designed to help you reach your wellness goals.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Any recent bloodwork, imaging, or test results can be helpful in your consultation but are not required. If testing is deemed appropriate, we are authorized to order a wide variety of tests through our office.

What can I expect from my treatment plan?

Our goal is to make wellness feel attainable for you. We will create a customized easy-to-follow plan of action that may include testing (such as micronutrient, food sensitivity, or neurotransmitters) which will help guide the treatment plan and ensure your interventions are appropriate. We may recommend targeted nutritional supplements, neurotransmitter support, or herbal medicine. You may receive dietary guidance or lifestyle suggestions depending on your situation. We will recommend any appropriate therapeutic modalities such as acupuncture, massage therapy, or energy work.
