Integrative Medicine treatments
Integrative Medicine (IM) focuses on the whole person, recognizing that the interactions of the mind, body, spirit, and community have a direct impact on wellbeing, and the importance of cultural traditions, personal preference, social circumstances, and lifestyle.
We combine conventional treatments with:
- Natural products
- Vitamins, minerals, botanical and herbal preparations
- Mind-body practices
- Meditation, yoga, massage, acupuncture, etc.
- Whole health systems such as ayurvedic medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, homeopathy and naturopathy
To get the greatest benefit from integrative medicine, it is important to obtain a full and comprehensive integrative assessment. This assessment looks at medical and family history as well as exercise, nutrition/diet, supplement use, environment, and spirituality.
Supplements, Acupuncture & Mind-Body Programs
The addition of certain supplements, acupuncture/TCM and mind-body techniques have been shown to enhance fertility treatment.
Supplements can help individuals facing fertility issues. It is important that each patient have their case evaluated and that recommendations on supplement use be based on their unique situation.
Mind-body programs may improve pregnancy rates and ease the stresses of treatment. We now have a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course available to all ORM patients.
