Health as defined by the World’s Health Organization (WHO) is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The process of achieving health can be complex when viewed through this definition since disease does not simply occur for solitary reasons.
That is why I have created Integrative Health and Medicine, a multifaceted and multidisciplinary approach to helping you overcome the obstacles to health and wellbeing.
Integrative Health & Medicine
Reclaiming personal authority over your health and wellbeing.
Achieve true health through use of a fully integrated medical approach and specialized preventative care options. Foundations of preventative care include education, advocacy, support, and self-care. Integrative health care builds upon these foundations by helping you find meaning behind your condition(s) so that meaningful solutions can be utilized to discover and create the health that your desire. In addition to attending your health care needs we also stress the importance of self-care practices related to:
- Physical health
- Mental and emotional health
- Environmental health
- Spiritual health.
