What Is Integrated Medicine?

Integrated medicine is where the East meets West medically, combining conventional medicine with holistic medicine. Holistic medicine uses many modalities and was well known and used long before what we know as conventional medicine today. Holistic medicine encompasses the use of such modalities as:
Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Herbs (both Chinese and Western), Reiki, NAET, Electromagnetic medicine and many others.

Conventional medicine uses more modern technology as well as pharmaceutical and laboratory diagnostics. Holistic medicine looks at the body as a whole, rather than just symptomatic treatment. It is necessary to find the basic cause of the symptoms and treat from the basics. The body can and will heal itself if the cause is treated properly.

After several years of practice using conventional medicine only, I often found myself reaching a dead end without reaching a conclusion to the disease. There was no place to go. I finally decided 41 years ago to look into holistic modalities and found that I was able to further my treatments to a much better success rate. Some of the more common maladies treated successfully are:
Osteoarthritis, Hip dysplasia, Spinal problems, Allergies, Heart disease, Cancer and much more.

We often start to support the body long before critical symptoms arise.

Geriatric (chronic) problems often respond well to holistic modalities, thereby giving our four legged friends a much longer and happier life. It’s best to start out holistically with the young animal, however it’s never too late to start.

Proper nutrition is the key to success from the beginning. The old expression “you are what you eat” is extremely wise thinking. We try to keep this in mind throughout life.

90% of our animals die of either cancer or heart disease. The next most common causes are kidney and liver disease. Some of these may be genetic in cause, but environment plays an important role. Overuse of vaccines, poor nutrition and overuse of chemicals are also factors.

Although we should never overlook the benefits of using conventional (modern) medicine, integrating holistic modalities can lead to a longer and healthier life.
