About Our Practice

Many Disciplines…ONE patient

In the spirit of Naturopathic Medicine, a primary goal of  Integrative Medical Consultants is to provide our patients with a broader understanding of health and a more lasting sense of well-being. 

Instead of the traditional disease-centered focus of conventional medicine, IMC applies a patient-centered approach that addresses the whole person rather than simply his or her symptoms.  

Simultaneously, while we treat the symptoms we are investigating the underlying source of the symptom.

 

We do this by combining the disciplines available from modern science with the wisdom of ancient healing.  We utilize the knowledge of several disciplines including osteopathy, acupuncture and homeopathy, healing touch, massage therapy, psychology, internal medicine and more. This means is that patient, loved ones and provider work together to develop an integrated diagnostic and therapeutic plan that will best address the whole person in their healthCARE and wellness pursuits.

Some of the Disciplines From Which we Draw

Internal Medicine / Family Practice

Internal medicine is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of nonsurgical conditions for the entire family.

Osteopathic Medicine

Osteopathy places greater emphasis on the relationship between the organs and the musculoskeletal system as well as on treating the whole individual rather than just the disease.

Homeopathy

Homeopaths heals by administering tiny doses of harmless animal, plant or mineral substances.

We Follow the Six Principles of 

Homeostasis

Support the healing systems inherent in the body and mind by using methods, medicines and techniques that are in harmony with natural processes.

The Healing Power of Nature

Preference for noninvasive treatments which minimize the risks of harmful side effects. Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.

Identify the Causes

Every illness has an underlying cause, often in aspects of the lifestyle, diet or habits of the individual. Naturopathic Physicians are trained to find and remove the underlying cause of a disease.

Treat the Whole Person

View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.

Provider as Teacher

Educate patients in achieving and maintaining health.

Prevention

Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.
