Integrative Medicine

Advanced integrative medicine encompasses conventional and natural medicine, to make available all possible instruments for healing for the patient. This is not to belittle the potential of natural medicine, accepting turn the enormous role that conventional medicine has had in improving the quality of life and survival of the population.

This type of integrative medicine serves the global aspects of the individual; physiological, psychological, nutritional and social. Importantly, the disease often appears as a result of poor eating and behavioral habits that cause a weakening of our immune system. Keep the body detoxified and a healthy and strong immune system is the most effective way to prevent disease.

Integrative Medicine can address patients with chronic diseases that hitherto received merely a palliative treatment, instead of healing. The integrated approach, combining conventional treatments with complementary therapeutic alternatives, greatly enhances the results.

What is Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine is different because it is medicine oriented to the restoration of health, which is a comprehensive analysis of the causes of a particular pathology. This new health care model provides the possibility of reducing the traditional medication (anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-anxiety pills, among others) by incorporating orthomolecular supplementation that allows us to use natural active ingredients at therapeutic concentrations.

Integrative Medicine highlights the fundamental role played by nutrition in producing improvements in patients through individualized and adjusted to their illness nutritional program.

Integrative Medicine places the patient at the center of the holistic approach to health care. Needs, risks and individual patient goals are the driving force of any integrative therapy. Doctors who practice integrative medicine emphasize that treating every aspect of a person’s health is crucial to the success of the healing process with a focus on aspects concerning:

  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Social
  • Environmental
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual

Integrative medicine is a multi-disciplinary approach combining scientific advances and a variety of effective complementary therapies to treat the disease. It is based on research showing that the human body has innate healing mechanisms. Diseases occur when the regenerative processes in the body are disturbed, and the body is no longer able to heal itself.

Integrative medicine emphasizes the use of less invasive treatment options to bring the body to a healthy state.

Physicians specializing in integrative medicine focus on optimizing health, combining a variety of methods

  • Lifestyle modification
  • Reduction and stress management
  • Coaching in fitness and exercise
  • Weight loss support
  • Nutritional planning
  • Detoxification
  • Vitamin supplements
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Hormone therapy
  • Bio-Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for men
  • Bio-Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) for women
  • Treatment for sleep disorders
  • Acupuncture
  • Spiritual balance
  • Meditation and prayer

Northeast Integrative Medicine

Medical professionals of integrative medicine center are orthodox physicians with additional training in other models of medicine and techniques and procedures merged into one. They specialize in treatment of chronic diseases (intestinal, rheumatologic, endocrinological, allergic, autoimmune, oncologic ….)

They perform diagnostics and treatments based on:

Rigorous clinical history
Medical history remains an essential element in medicine. A good medical history will collect information of events that led to the disease, relating them in time, setting its rate of onset and progress. It can not be done in haste. Often, patients are encouraged to write on a document current events and make a memory of how it all began? and how they were before ?. Forgotten facts, surgeries, prolonged periods of time with fever, intense periods of stress may be factors of interest.
In a bureaucratized medicine, clinical history has been lost because it needs space and time for talking. It marks the starting point of a good relationship between the patient and their physicians.

Physical exploration

A proper exploration completes a good medical history. Many of the patients are surprised when we asked them to do it. There are people who have never been adequately explored. Patient observation, inspection, palpation, and auscultation are tools and techniques for additional information.

Diagnosis by bio resonance

It works with the patient’s own electromagnetic information and other substances, stimulating regeneration and balance of the body through its own self-healing power. From a biophysical point of view, the human body can be represented as an electromagnetic field, like a cell, tissue or organ. These electromagnetic waves are emitted in specific frequency ranges. Thus, the electromagnetic information of the human being can be detected and identified. This allows professionals to treat the sick organism through bioresonance, to cancel or reduce electromagnetic pathological information, increase those involved at the physiological level and improve response to own biochemical processes in the body.

Systemic diagnosis

It allows professionals to make an initial assessment and periodic checks on the main causes of organic disorder, as can be intestinal dysbiosis, blockades by scars or dental foci, immunological disorders, lack of physiological substances such as vitamins, trace elements, amino acids, environmental toxins, pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, parasites and yeasts. It also allows quantification of these stressors.

Diagnosis of food intolerances
It allows identification of hypersensitivity reactions to certain foods. Particularly suitable in processes such as: gastrointestinal disorders (constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, abdominal bloating, heavy digestions), dermatologic (eczema, acne, psoriasis), respiratory diseases (asthma, arthritis), neurological complaints (headaches, migraines), psychological disorders (fatigue, lethargy, anxiety, hyperactivity), arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, candidiasis, obesity).

Clinical ultrasound

It allows medical doctors to visualize sonographically a certain organ, watching their appearance and relationships with others. Abdominal ultrasound locates organs such as spleen, kidneys, pancreas, allows the visualization of blood vessels, etc. Thyroid ultrasound is essential for a good assessment of the thyroid, one of the most common diseases for which patients come to our clinic.
Another possibility is the study of urinary bladder, prostate, musculoskeletal ultrasound, doppler study of blood vessels, observing possible atherosclerotic plaques that can be dangerous for the brain. Ductal breast ultrasound turns out to be extremely useful in preventing and diagnosing breast diseases.

Other techniques
Spirometry, electrocardiography, bio resonance, hormonal blood tests that include analysis, inflammation markers, intermediary metabolites, anti-aging markers, genetic studies, cardiac risk, intestinal and vaginal studies, among others.
