The integrative medical approach helps the whole person, not just one aspect or part. This means that the physician recognizes a patient's mind, body, and soul overlap and affect each other; therefore, they must all be treated and dealt with together, not in isolation. Through this holistic approach, the patient, doctor and family can work as a cohesive unit, both preventing and treating issues as they arise. In order to do this, the doctor looks at the whole patient, and even beyond at his/her family and environment. When applied to pediatrics, this can help set up a child for a lifetime of healthy living.
When a child is sick, the body is the first thing to suffer. Our integrative pediatric practice will help the body not only fix the symptoms, but also find causes and try to prevent further issues. This preventative step takes on many forms including:
- Use of Supplements
- Physical Fitness
- Allergies/Environmental Factors
- Fostering Good Body Flora
Of course, each patient will have different issues and problems. Our office can tailor a program to help any patient keep their body healthy.
