Integrative medicine looks at each patient as a whole person and seeks to understand:

  • The cause of health problems
  • How lifestyle choices may tip the body out of balance and into a state of illness
  • How eating habits might contribute to poor health or imbalance
  • How a feeling of belonging to a community can affect health

Integrative medicine specialists use a number of approaches to help stop illness and promote healing. These approaches are based on results and research.

The Polyclinic offers integrative medicine to pediatric patients from birth to age 25. We work closely with your child and respect their own healing skills. We also use treatments that are more natural and less invasive whenever possible.

  • Our integrative medicine specialists take a holistic approach to health and healing. We look at your child’s unique qualities, family history, lifestyle, social structure and medical issues. Then we create a personalized care plan.
