What is integrative medicine?
Integrative medicine is a blend of evidence-based medicine and alternative
medicine. Integrative medicine is designed to treat a person, not just
a condition. It is a holistic approach. We provide treatments such as
IV therapies, which bring great relief to many patients. Our integrative medicine approach
also includes a
healthy baby project, aiming to reduce and minimize the chances of childhood illnesses. We
nutritional consultation for advanced health issues, targeting common issues such as obesity and
elevated blood sugar levels. Another area that requires specific holistic
bio-identical hormone therapy. Our Rejuvenated You Therapy (RYT) includes hormones identical to that
of which your body produces, not synthetic or hazardous products.
At Optimal Health Dimensions, we don't just treat your body, we treat
your mind, body and spirit. We understand that a health condition can
adversely affect all aspects of yourself and your life, which is why we
don't believe in a cookie-cutter approach. We evaluate each person's
sickness and situation and treat them accordingly. While we may use some
unconventional treatments, we use therapies that have received high-quality
support. We do not replace mainstream medicine, we simply use alternative
treatments alongside of more traditional approaches. To quote from WebMD,
What makes integrative medicine appealing? Advocates point to deep dissatisfaction
with a health care system that often leaves doctors feeling rushed and
overwhelmed and patients feeling as if they're nothing more than diseased
livers or damaged joints. Integrative medicine seems to promise more time,
more attention, and a broader approach to healing -- one that is not based
solely on the Western biomedical model, but also draws from other cultures.
Integrative medicine follows the below principles:
- A partnership between patient and practitioner
- A blend of conventional and alternative treatments
- A consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease
(mind, spirit, body and community)
- A recognition that good medicine should be open to new paradigms
- A use of natural and less-invasive treatment whenever possible
- Encourages health and wellness alongside of treating disease
Optimal Health Dimensions employs state-of-the-art, conventional medical
treatments with other therapies that have been shown to be effective and
safe. Studies conducted at Duke Integrative Medicine shows that patients
who participated in integrative medicine programs realized more profound
health benefits than patients who simply received conventional treatment only.
In our experience, patients are looking for physical strength, comfort,
vigor, vitality and a strong immunity (all physical aspects of good health),
as well as cheerfulness, confidence, calmness, resilience to stress (all emotional
aspects of good health), insight, awareness, good memory (all mental aspects
of good health), wisdom, compassion (all spiritual aspects of good health),
fellowship and harmonious relationships (all social aspects of good health).

Statistics on Who Uses Integrative Medicine
According to research done by the National Center for Complementary and
Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), approximately 38% of adults (about 4 in
10) and approximately 12% of children (about 1 in 9) are using some form
of complementary and/or alternative medicine (CAM). The most commonly
used CAM therapies include deep breathing exercises, chiropractic and
osteopathic, meditation, massage therapy and yoga. Natural products (such
as herbal treatments) are also a big component of CAM treatment.
Complementary and alternative medicine has been used to treat or prevent
such conditions as diabetes, cancer, back pain, Fibromyalgia and functional
bowel disease. It's growing popularity has been described as a "hidden
mainstream in American medicine."
In the words of Discovery.com, "For those suffering from debilitating
pain or a condition doctors can't seem to treat, alternative medicine
may offer some form of relief or simply help patients deal with life-changing
health problems. Even healthy people may participate in practices like
yoga and homeotherapy to try to manage their health more holistically
or avoid the chemicals used in standard drugs." Many Americans also
turn to CAM because they are disillusioned by the current healthcare system.
One study found that 60% of respondents who used CAM for back pain said
they perceived a great deal of benefit. Another study of veterans with
chronic non-cancer pain found that more than 80% reported using CAM. A
study of individuals struggling with back pain and headaches who turned
to CAM for solutions found that "nearly all patients with previous
experience with CAM currently use CAM in both conditions (93.6% in headache;
100% in lower back pain)."
Integrative medicine is the best of both worlds because it combines proven,
conventional medicine with complementary and alternative medicine, which
strives to support the mind, body, spirit and community and promote healing,
going beyond simply treating an illness and treating a person as a whole.
