Integrative Medicine is a healing-oriented approach that takes the whole person into account, including all aspects of lifestyle. It combines cutting-edge, conventional medicine with evidence-based, complementary and alternative approaches.

Whether treating chronic issues or exploring preventative wellness options, the overall goal of Mercy's Integrative Medicine Center is to identify and address the root of the condition, as opposed to only treating symptoms.

Integrative medicine goes beyond just getting your blood pressure in a certain range, for example. Although important, the Integrative Medicine Center focuses on the root issue affecting your whole being and the cause of high blood pressure. This could be a combination of stress, lack of exercise, poor nutrition, or relationship or spirituality issues. These core areas are addressed and appropriate therapies applied to the mind, body and spirit.
