Integrative Medicine is the blending of complementary and alternative therapies with standard treatment options. The goal is to provide a holistic approach to your overall care and treatment. Our Integrative Medicine practitioner is a licensed MD who works closely with the Women's Health specialists to prescribe herbs that can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and provide alternatives to interested patients.
Acupuncture, a type of alternative therapy, is an ancient healing art that harnesses the body's natural energy. It helps to balance the body's energy and restore the natural energy flow. Acupuncture has been found to relieve nausea and fatigue caused by chemotherapy. Counseling on lifestyle, diet and activity are also available to help maintain wellness.
