Omaha Integrative Health Consults: Nurturing Health
What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine, beginning with a health consult, is a holistic approach guided by each person’s unique set of circumstances – physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental. Integrative medicine utilizes a wide array of treatments and modalities to treat illness as well as enhance wellness throughout the lifespan. Integrative medicine treatments complement conventional care and empower you to make positive lifestyle changes and utilize the integrative therapies that will help you live happy, healthy, and whole.
What is an Integrative Health Consult?
The consult is an hour-long appointment. Your practitioner will take a detailed history and review medications/supplements, diet, and lifestyle factors. You and your practitioner will decide how integrative therapies could be helpful to you and develop an integrative treatment plan.
Can I still see my other providers?
A fundamental principle of integrative medicine is collaborating with you and all professionals involved in your care. Your practitioner will communicate with your primary care provider and send a consultation note to providers involved in your care. For acute care and medical emergencies, you will need to see your primary care provider.
What is an Integrative Treatment Plan?
An integrative treatment plan is developed by you and your practitioner. It is based on your symptoms, history, and personal health goals. Recommendations may include conventional care as well as integrative treatments such as nutrition counseling, health coaching, integrative psychotherapy, therapeutic yoga, bodywork, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and other mind body therapies.
