Integrative Medicine is a collection of therapies that are used to improve your health and well-being. These therapies are used along with your existing medical treatment to help you feel better and to heal faster. Integrative medicine is not just about treating your symptoms but also focuses on the root cause of the problem and helps you make positive lifestyle changes to prevent future problems.
What are the 5 domains of integrative medicine?
Studies show that patients who use integrative medicine strategies experience a more comprehensive approach to care and report improved overall quality of life and fewer health concerns. Among older adults who reported using integrative strategies, 81% found them beneficial (38% very, 53% somewhat). Most were using these techniques to manage pain or insomnia; for stress management; to support recovery from an acute illness such as cancer, an injury, or a chronic disease; or for relaxation and to enhance mental and emotional well-being.
A growing number of physicians are interested in the practice of integrative medicine. However, a physician who chooses to incorporate integrative medicine into his or her practice must have an in-depth understanding of the principles and practices involved. Additionally, a physician must be prepared to answer patient questions related to the benefits and risks of various approaches.
