What is integrative medicine?
Integrative medicine is an emerging medical field offering new hope for patients when conventional treatments alone haven’t worked. According to the National Institutes of Health, this exciting new field involves the use of nontraditional therapies to complement more traditional medical care.
At InteCare Medical Clinic in Fairborn, Ohio, we like to think of integrative medicine as using those nontraditional, evidence-based, complementary therapies to treat the whole patient – mind, body, and spirit – along with addressing other factors that can affect a person’s health and well-being.
