Integrative medicine places the patient at the center of a holistic approach to medical care. Patient's individual needs, risks, and goals are the main driving forces of any integrative therapy. Physicians practicing integrative medicine emphasize that treatment of every aspect of a person's health is crucial to the success of the healing process.
Integrative medicine is a multi-discipline approach that combines the scientific advances and a variety of effective therapies to treat disease.
Integrative medicine combines conventional and complementary treatment options to achieve optimal health for the patient. It is based on the research which demonstrates that the human body has an innate healing mechanism. Illness occurs when the regenerative processes in the body are disturbed, and the body can no longer keep itself healthy.
Integrative medicine emphasizes the use of the least invasive treatment options necessary to bring the body to a healthy state.
Integrative medicine physicians focus on health optimization and often combine a variety of methods to optimize their patients' health:
Stress reduction and management
Weight loss support
BHRT for Men
BHRT for Women
Body and mind regeneration

Homeopathy is a therapeutic method that uses diluted substances to relieve symptoms. The active ingredients in homeopathic medicines include diluted plants, animals or minerals that relieve the same symptoms they cause at full strength (i.e., a micro dose of coffee bean helps to relieve nervousness).
Homeopathic medicines have been used for more than 200 years. They are manufactured in strict accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and drug Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Today, homeopathic medicines are used by millions of patients and recommended by health care professionals around the world to relieve many acute health conditions such as allergies, coughs, colds, flu, stress, muscle pain and teething.
Homeopathic medicines work naturally with your body without causing drowsiness or sleeplessness. There is no risk of overdose, and they do not interact with other medications. They work best when taken at the first sign of illness, so you can safely take them as soon as you develop symptoms. There is no need to wait until you are "sick enough".
Nutritional IV Therapy
A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish your body.
There are instances though, when the body has trouble obtaining these nutrients through natural digestive functions. Conditions such as stress, medical illness, or food intolerance can inhibit the absorption of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, or biotin.
In these cases, injecting those nutrients directly into the blood stream may be the best option to ensure that your body is getting what it needs. This is the goal of nutritional IV therapy.
Integrative Cancer Care & Survivorship
The purpose of integrative cancer therapy is to support you during every stage of your treatment and to provide you with emotional and physical strength to cope with your symptoms. If you need help dealing with cancer, reach out to one of our doctors.
Cancer treatments can save your life, but they also take a toll on your physical and emotional well-being. The focus of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiology is to remove tumors and prevent their return. Because of this, the other aspects of healing tend to be overlooked. At HealingSpace, we incorporate alternative methods of treatment such as nutrition, supplementation, energy healing, massage, meditation, and other holistic modalities as a multi-dimensional approach to healing the body, mind and spirit.
