What is integrative medicine? Dr. Adam Perlman shares three main concepts that form the basis of his definition of integrative medicine: patient-centered care, inclusive approach, and self-actualization.
According to Dr. Perlman, this means putting the patient at the center of their care, partnering with the patient, and removing patient labels. This allows for providers to help patients to look at their goals and desires for their optimal health.
The inclusive approach to healthcare means that providers utilize evidence-based approaches as well as complementary medicine modalities, therapies, and treatments. Integrative medicine providers have expertise in the research and literature so that they can effectively integrate different techniques when customizing a patient’s plan of care.
Integrative medicine providers do not simply focus on treating a disease but rather work with patients to help them achieve self-actualization (optimal vitality) and thrive.
