Integrative medicine is healing-orientated medicine that takes into account the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasized the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence and makes use of all appropriate therapies.
It neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically. Instead, we believe good medicine is based on good science; it is inquiry-driven and open to new modalities of healing.
Effective interventions are natural, less invasive, and more cost-effective and are used whenever possible.
