Integrative & Alternative Medicine Q & A

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is a unique approach to health care. At Indus Healthcare, your provider uses an integrative approach to deliver top-quality care. Your provider first considers all factors that can influence your well-being. They take a holistic approach to diagnostics and perform thorough screenings.

Once your provider identifies the problem, he or she reviews your treatment options. Your integrative medicine provider could suggest a combination of conventional and alternative therapies.

Conventional medicine includes prescription drugs, surgery, and other established treatments. These treatments are often supported by medical literature and preferred by many physicians. But alternative medicine, alongside conventional treatments, can offer additional benefits.

What is alternative medicine?

Many alternative therapies have been used for centuries. Alternative treatments include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Tai chi or yoga
  • Dietary supplements
  • Herbal medicine
  • Biofeedback
  • Hypnosis

These remedies might not be right for everyone. But many physicians find that alternative treatments boost the effectiveness of conventional medicine.

Before starting treatment, your Indus Healthcare provider considers your diagnosis and medical history. Next, your provider explains your treatment options. You receive the support you need to make an informed decision about your care.

How can integrative and alternative medicine improve my health?

Integrative and alternative medicine often emphasizes the importance of:

  • A healthy diet
  • Physical well-being
  • Emotional well-being

Your diet can have a significant effect on your overall health. Changing your diet or using supplements can relieve some of your symptoms. Receiving the right nutrients can also encourage your body to heal. Your provider can help you explore the benefits of dietary changes.

Your physical well-being is also essential. If you struggle with chronic pain, massage, and chiropractic medicine could help your body heal. Acupuncture or acupressure can also relieve pain and boost healing. Your provider might recommend these treatments after an injury or surgery.

Your emotional state can often affect your physical health. Stress, anxiety, and depression can prevent your body from healing. But hypnosis, biofeedback, and meditation can help you manage your symptoms. These treatments can improve your mood and help you relax.

What other health care services are available?

At Indus Healthcare, your provider creates a personalized treatment plan. They work with you to managing any long-term health concerns. Along with alternative therapies, your provider can prescribe medication or recommend surgery.
