Integrative medicine combines conventional care with alternative medicine to improve patient care. Rather than practice one type of medicine, integrative physicians will often combine therapies and treatment approaches to ensure the best results for their patients. ACAM physicians do not shun western medicine, in fact they practice western care everyday. Our physicians are unique in that they incorporate appropriate and proven alternative treatment options.
Types of medicine employed by integrative medicine physicians:
- Western medicine
- Allopathic medicine
- Osteopathic medicine
- Regenerative medicine
- Holistic medicine
- Naturopathic medicine
- Functional medicine
Each physician is unique and may combine elements from one or all of these treatment approaches to ensure that you receive the best patient care.
