Integrative medicine is the amalgamation of several different medical fields, all working together. Integrative medicine differs from traditional medicine in that it aims to treat the whole person, rather than just the symptoms. This is beneficial, as when treating the symptoms, medication is often prescribed that causes side effects that requires more medication to treat. This is clearly problematic, and leads to many unwarranted health problems that could otherwise be avoided.
With integrative medicine, doctors take into account the patient’s mind, body and soul, and how they are interconnected. With this objective, doctors can more accurately diagnose, treat and prevent future problems from arising by getting to the root of the problem, instead of applying a topical solution.
