Optimal Health is much more than the absence of sickness. It is the conscious pursuit of the highest qualities of the physical, environmental, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of the human experience.
Integrative Medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – body and mind. The practice of integrative medicine integrates conventional and alternative therapies to prevent disease and, more importantly, to promote healthy ageing. It embraces the idea that the body is innately self-healing and attempts where possible to promote healing rather than suppressing symptoms. It emphasizes the therapeutic healthcare practitioner-patient relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative to stimulate healing.
