What Makes Integrative Medicine Different?
If you feel increasingly dissatisfied with the traditional model of healthcare, you’re not alone. More Americans than ever are frustrated by doctors who don’t have the time to listen to their needs, and prescription medications that seem to cause more problems than they solve. For many people, integrative medicine is a more natural and personal alternative to healthcare. Doctors who practice integrative medicine focus on the whole person, which encompasses the mind, body, spirit, and community at large. This is a radically different approach than traditional medicine that only treats injuries and diseases one symptom at a time.
By the time people reach mid-life, their bodies are undergoing radical hormonal changes. For women, progesterone is the first hormone to start declining followed by estrogen. While these two hormones are out of balance, women can experience a wide range of symptoms that make their lives less enjoyable. These may include insomnia, migraine headaches, mood swings, weight gain, and decreased interest in sex. Men, who start losing testosterone around age 30, experience many of the same symptoms. Unfortunately, doctors who practice traditional medicine aren’t likely to offer you anything that brings lasting relief.
