Duke Integrative Medicine provides customized, patient-centered healthcare that combines conventional medicine with proven complementary techniques to motivate and assist clients to optimize their health. With an emphasis on prevention and wellness, we offer an array of evidence-based treatment modalities that address the whole person — mind, body, spirit, and community. Caring relationships, honest, open communication and focused attention empower our patients to fully engage the healing process and embrace lifelong wellness.
Integrative medicine avoids the false dichotomy between conventional and complementary medicine. New therapies are selected on the basis of their scientifically proven safety and effectiveness, regardless of their origin. The result is an array of services intended to tackle the complex dynamics contributing to your health. Often, the physical state is symptomatic of mental, emotional, social, spiritual, or environmental factors that only a comprehensive, personalized health plan can resolve.
At the core of integrative medicine is the concept of the partnership between patient and healthcare practitioner. With a preference for the least invasive and most natural therapies, the full range of the healing sciences is brought to bear on strengthening your innate healing response by physicians and providers trained in both conventional and integrative medicine. When you have recovered your health and vitality, we will help you maintain your wellness and prevent the onset or recurrence of disease.
