Integrative medicine (IM) harnesses the best of both conventional and alternative approaches to address the biological, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of health and illness. IM offers a personal approach to health by combining complementary therapies that have been proven safe and effective with conventional medical approaches.
There are so many diets and advice to choose from but what are the best healing foods? How do they specifically relate to your illness?
When is it appropriate to take a vitamin or mineral or herb? Will it be effective?
Should you detox and how should you detox safely and effectively?
Are there effective and in-expensive anti-aging strategies?
How can you improve your emotional wellbeing?
How can we improve the physical and emotional health of our children?
Would you and your family like to be healthier and happier?
Integrative healthcare should not just be about blending therapies; it should be about applying strategies that will improve your health.
Integrative medicine incorporates elements of complementary and alternative medicine alongside conventional, mainstream methods of treatment and diagnosis. Integrative healthcare is especially appealing to proactive patients who have done their research and want to be full partners in their own healthcare.
Each patient is unique. Therefore, diagnosis and treatment plans should be specific to each individual’s needs. Consequently, a personalized treatment plan that incorporates effective biotyping methodology as the cornerstone of therapeutic intervention is essential.
Identification of mind-body constitution through genomics and other health history information allows the practitioner to formulate an integrative treatment plan that addresses the distinctiveness of each patient.
Apple A Day RX uses a tried and trusted comprehensive body-typing system that takes into account your inherited traits such as body frame, eye colour, digestive capacity, climate likes and dislikes, and emotional balance to name but a few. This methodology provides one of the most comprehensive treatments in preventive medicine and treatment of ailments. This is vital in order to create effective healthcare outcomes for all patients.
In addition, the key to any effective treatment is ‘targeted therapy’. Targeted therapy is a rationally designed therapy that uses a biological rationale and a predefined mechanism of action from complementary, conventional and alternative medicine systems.
As Medicine trends into a new era of system biology for a holistic understanding of diseases, this body-typing formulation provides the least invasive and most affordable form of assessing an individual’s susceptibility and prognosis. Furthermore, it provides accurate and sustainable dietary recommendations and an insight into the therapeutic interventions for each patient. This treatment protocol involves a strategic integration of therapies, pharmaceuticals, medicinal foods and nutritional supplements.
As an experienced CAM practitioner, I use an integrated approach, creating a strategic healthcare plan that is customised to suit the needs of each individual, providing a complete system of care. This integrated approach includes one or more of the following in order to suit the needs of each patient:
- Ayurvedic Medicine
- Clinical Nutrition
- Western Herbal Medicine
- Yoga Therapy
- Bioregulatory Medicine
- Naturopathic Medicine
- Chinese Herbal Medicine
- Personal Development Program (emotional and spiritual wellbeing)
Creating holistic healthcare solutions for you and your family are at the forefront of what we do at Apple A Day RX. We are all about providing the best outcomes for our patients; that’s why the use of integrative healthcare which harnesses the best of complementary, conventional and alternative medicine is the best course for families seeking to improve their overall health and wellbeing.
