Integrative Medicine has been called the “new medicine” but in many ways, it is a return to the original practice and philosophy of medicine. It emphasizes the relationship between the doctor and patient, the innate healing ability of the body and the importance of addressing all aspects of an individual’s life to attain optimal health and healing.
Our complementary physicians and practitioners consciously blend the very best of conventional medicine, cutting-edge diagnosis and treatment with appropriate therapies. We strive to include therapies backed by scientific evidence to improve health and promote healing, while minimizing any side-effects or harm. All factors that affect health, wellness and disease are considered to promote optimal healing of the mind, body and spirit in all their complexity.
At Northwestern Integrative Medicine, we provide a unique healthcare experience. As soon as you walk through the entrance, you are welcomed into a gentle healing environment. Your visit may begin with a board-certified internist who performs a thorough evaluation of medical conditions and suggests an array of integrative treatment options. Specially trained complementary medicine practitioners also are available to provide a full range of therapies from diverse healing traditions. Physicians and practitioners work as colleagues and work in partnership to benefit your health.
Our physicians have training in both conventional and integrative medicine and are devoted to fostering integration of care between these diverse fields.
