How Integrative Medicine Fights the Effects of Aging

How Integrative Medicine Fights the Effects of Aging

July 30 2019
Ever notice how when you look good, you tend to feel good? That’s because wellness occurs when we are in balance. It takes a holistic approach to achieve wellness, and integrative medicine is the approach that looks at all aspects of your life to help you meet that goal, which is why Helen’s Haven is an integrative medical spa.

Conventional medicine has been the standard approach in the Western world for centuries. Although we’ve achieved amazing and life-saving breakthroughs throughout the years, many physicians are frustrated when conventional medicine falls short, especially regarding prevention. 

Integrative medicine combines the power of conventional medicine with techniques and products that were formerly called alternative medicine to optimize wellbeing, treating both symptoms and the underlying causes of disease. Some of the principles of integrative medicine include:

  • Partnership. The physician and patient work in partnership to promote wellness.
  • Holistic. Your mind, body, spirit, and community all contribute to your health and well-being, so integrative medicine taps into nutrition, hormonal effects, and environmental and lifestyle factors to achieve well-being holistically. 
  • Healing. Whenever possible, interventions that are natural, non-invasive, and promote the body’s ability to heal itself are used to promote wellness.
  • Scientific. Techniques, products, and treatments used are proven by scientific inquiry to be effective.
  • Prevention. Preventing disease is as important as curing illnesses.
  • Personalized. Everyone’s treatment is different because it takes a personalized approach to holistically address illness and its underlying causes. 

Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine is based on the principles of integrative medicine, also known as functional medicine. It promotes a sense of balance that allows you to look and feel your best, turning back or slowing the clock to restore your skin and muscles to a younger look and condition to help you look and feel your absolute best.

As a holistic approach, integrative medicine might include massage, acupuncture, or other wellness and anti-aging techniques, as well as conventional therapies, to achieve your optimal wellness. Everyone’s treatment plan will be unique, because we all have different needs.
