Finding where you are on the map of health/disease and then charting a course to where you want to be is the prevue and super power of Integrative Medicine approaches.
There is a vast world of diagnostic procedures, studies, tests, and history-taking skills that help health practitioners to define where the underlying cause of disease lies. The world of Integrative testing is vast and supported by science and research. Doctors who understand this type of testing, interpretation, and treatment of such results receive CME credits (Continuing Medical Education credits through the medical certification board) for their attendance at conferences where they learn these practices. Don’t allow uninformed doctors or friends to convince you there is “no research” on these approaches and testing. It is simply untrue.
Because of this vast world of scientific testing and treatment, Integrative Doctors have more tools in their tool belts to help you define where you are and chart a course to where you want to be.
Often, people feel lost, confused, and unclear on how to improve their health. Most people with chronic diseases such as cancer, autoimmune disease, and brain diseases have even been told they have no good options for treatment. But nothing could be farther from the truth!
If you are lost in the vast acreage of Yosemite Park, no one would say that you should just sit there and take a chill pill and get used to being lost. No! But you also can’t chart a course to safety if you don’t know where you are.
So the first step is defining better what is causing the imbalance that is leading to the symptoms of disease in your body. That’s why we almost always start with specialty tests.
Once we’ve better defined the underlying causes of disease, the way to health seems much less frightening and more clear.
I look forward to helping you find yourself on the map of disease/health and charting a course for your ideal health and well-being.
To your health and wellness,
