Integrative Medicine is based on the following beliefs:
Health is more than managing disease but is a state of complete mental, physical & social wellbeing.
Our bodies are our autobiographies and tell the story of our everyday lifestyle choices.
Open minded, critical appraisal of the scientific evidence behind any healing intervention (western medicine, complementary medicine), wellness strategy (lifestyle medicine, culinary medicine) or biohack.
Healthcare providers & patients work together to co-create a lifestyle prescription.
Healthcare providers are also working on their own lifestyle prescription.
