Holistic and Integrative Health Q & A

What is Holistic and Integrative Health?

Physicians who practice holistic medicine consider the whole person rather than a cluster of symptoms. They consider the connection between physical, mental, and spiritual health, acknowledging that all three must be kept in balance to maintain optimal health and wellness.

Integrative medicine combines conventional medical practice with nonconventional alternatives. Many therapies are available to help you prevent health problems and to heal from injury and disease, such as massage, relaxation training, coaching, and herbal supplements.

The heart of holistic and integrative health care is determining the true cause of the problem so it can be properly treated. If you have a headache, a pain reliever offers temporary relief, but pain will return if the headache is caused by stress or an untreated hormonal imbalance. When you struggle to lose weight, any number of hormonal influences can sabotage your efforts.

At MyMD Medical Group, your doctor considers your problem from every angle. Rather than simply trying to make the symptom disappear with a medication, your doctor spends time identifying every factor that contributes to the problem.

What Conditions are Treated Holistically?

The doctors at MyMD Medical Group approach every challenge you face from a holistic, integrative standpoint. This approach effectively treats physical and mental health problems because it gets to the root of the problem.
