Integrative Medicine – A Guide to Living Well and why it’s worth some consideration…
Integrative medicine is guided by the integration of the science-based ancient approaches and wisdom of Eastern approaches to healing with the ever-growing technological advances of Western medicine.
Although conventional medicine is backed by valuable research and strong scientific evidence, it usually characterizes patients by their symptom or diagnosis rather than the person who happens to have the disease. The complexity of who they are, the uniqueness of their life and biology are, more often than not, sadly left out of their treatment plan. Integrative medicine addresses not only the many available modalities that can be used to treat the patient, but also who the patient is in relation to the dis-ease that they are presenting with.
WHY Integrative Medicine?
Our society is experiencing a sharp increase in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, and autoimmune disorders. The system of medicine practiced by most physicians is oriented toward acute care, the diagnosis and treatment of trauma or illness that is of short duration and in need of urgent care, such as appendicitis or a broken leg. Unfortunately, the acute-care approach to medicine lacks the proper methodology and tools for preventing and treating complex, chronic disease.
There’s a huge gap between research and the way doctors practice. The gap between emerging research in basic sciences and integration into medical practice is enormous particularly in the area of complex, chronic illness. Most physicians are not adequately trained to assess the underlying causes of complex, chronic disease and to apply strategies such as nutrition, diet, and exercise to both treat and prevent these illnesses in their patients.
integrative medicine has come such a long way that we now have a branch of it at the Federal level. Refer to National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health
Start Living The Code
If you are not satisfied with how you look and feel or struggling, it is not too late for you to take control. Cracking the Metabolic Code is about the interrelationships between everything you do in life and how those interrelationships affect your metabolic health. Your metabolism is not merely your caloric intake
We have partnered with Dr. James LaValle, a founder of LaValle Metabolic Institute to offer the Metabolic Code (MC) platform to our patients. MC is a method for determining the state of your overall vitality and wellness, considering all experiences, exposures and lifestyle habits that could cause a slow metabolism. Metabolism is not just your caloric intake and expenditure. There are many interconnected components that could be disrupting your metabolism such as:
- Diet and Food Intolerances
- Drug History
- Acute and Chronic Stress
- Disease History
- Essential Nutrient Status
- Environment and Detoxification Potential
Some signs or symptoms of a slow metabolism may be:
- Fatigued; Tired all the Time
- Body Aches and Pains
- Uncontrollable Food Cravings
- Increased Belly Fat
- Short Term Memory Loss
- Foggy Brain
- Can’t Lose Weight
- Easily Gain Weight
If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of a slow metabolism our Metabolic Health Assessment Report is the key to getting your metabolic health back.
