What is integrative medicine?
Integrative medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes into account the whole person, body, mind and spirit. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative.
What makes the integrative medicine program at Baylor unique?
The Center for Integrative Medicine is a collaboration of health practitioners whose intention is to provide quality care employing both complementary and conventional medical approaches in a healing environment.
Our philosophy of integrative medicine is one of holism: the physical, emotional, social and spiritual states of an individual are all important determinants of wellness. Our approach to each patient is individualized and patient centered, with suggestions for treatment based on the unique health status and goals of each patient. We employ complementary techniques and lifestyle recommendations as integral aspects of care, in addition to traditional therapies.
