Integrative Medicine at Livingston HealthCare
What Is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine is healing-oriented and takes into account the whole
person—mind, body, and spirit—including all aspects of your
lifestyle. This form of and approach to medicine emphasizes the therapeutic
relationship between the practitioner and the patient and makes use of
all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative.
For example, stress can increase inflammation in the body, worsening conditions
such as arthritis, skin conditions, gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, and
heart disease. Integrative medicine supports your body's ability to
heal itself and can help you achieve health and balance by engaging you,
as the patient, in the healing process.
When Should Integrative Medicine Be Used?

can be used for a broad range of medical needs and conditions, including
but not limited to:
- Preventive care
- Skin disease
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Heart disease
