Integrative Medicine Not only for Cancer Care

May 30, 2014 06:04PM

The Integrative Medicine Program at Baylor Health combines multiple approaches to help patients become as healthy as possible.“Integrative medicine is basically opening up your toolbox,” explains Carolyn Matthews, M.D., a gynecologic oncologist and medical director of integrative medicine at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas. “It’s using lifestyle medicine, as well as some aspects of ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, along with traditional allopathic medical care.”While the Integrative Medicine program operates out of Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center, patients with conditions other than cancer can also benefit from an integrative approach to medicine.

Matthews says, “The program makes recommendations from a 360-degree viewpoint.” With a focus on disease prevention, integrative medicine provides a personalized approach based on each patient’s needs.Some might walk away with instructions to exercise more vigorously, while others might get a prescription for yoga or tai chi, as well as advice for additional medication or sleep studies.”
