Our Core Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Rooted in our focus on participatory patient care, it’s our mission to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health for yourself, no matter where you are right now with our expert guidance.
Guided step-by-step by our care team, you will embark on an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the best of both Eastern and Western medicine, including smart lifestyle modifications that will significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms.
You’ll receive dedicated attention from our care team, including integrated practitioners, acupuncturists, health coaches and nutritionists.
During your exploratory consultation, you will review the course of care with one of our practitioners, and learn how our approach differs dramatically from conventional, routine forms of healthcare that rarely deals with root cause of illness.
The subsequent treatment will be charted by our care team based on your individual needs, which are very unique, case-by-case for each patient.
No patient is exactly the same, and yet there are many factors that affect your health from lifestyle to environment and diet and even mindset. Guided by our team, we will get to the root cause of your dis-ease – using diagnostic tests and other assessment tools that your current doctor is mostly likely unfamiliar with.
Our care is so effective because we focus on dealing with the catalyst of illnesses including toxicity in the home and work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, food as medicine, the role of hormone and even mindset that can all determine how healthy you are to date.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into the standard of care? At Integrative Therapies Wellness Center, our entire team is deeply committed to shortening that lag.
All our staff are life-long learners, continuously upgrading their wisdom through sharing best practices and seeking out innovative, out-of-the-box ideas to help our patients achieve their health goals.
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike traditional doctors, our care team always focuses on root cause resolution – isolating the key imbalance or imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Also known as functional medicine, we seek to give you solutions for illness instead of covering up the symptoms by using medications that also create more issues with harmful side effects. The key is to rebalance your body so it can heal naturally and safely heal.
Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting but we have discovered that using the power of community is one of the most effective ways to support you during your health transformation and beyond.
We leverage group structures for patient education, peer-to-peer support, and accountability – with both your care team and your fellow patients rooting for your success. We also harness the support of on-line communities to give you support remotely, as your make important changes that translate into lasting health.
