Integrative medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, treating the mind, body & spirit synergistically, not as separate and independent entities. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative. There is always a time and place for conventional medicine, and likewise for alternative medicine. Integrative medicine is a philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative medicine uncritically. It recognizes that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven and be open to new paradigms. Integrative medicine utilizes natural, effective and less invasive interventions when appropriate, such as Ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, & acupuncture. The broader concepts of integrative medicine focus on promotion of health, prevention of illness and treatment of disease. Synergistiq Integrative Health encourages anti aging, healthy nutrition, weight loss and holistic wellness.
Through optimization of health and synergy of body, mind & spirit, one can eliminate the need for dependence on prescription medications and avoid the curse of ”bad genes.” Unhealthy and mindless living accelerates the predisposition to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hormonal imbalance, endocrine “dis-ease” and a myriad of other medical conditions.
Because we truly value you and your health, we want to spend as much time as we can with you, getting to know you and discussing how we can start you on your journey to a healthier and happier version of yourself. The mission of Synergistiq Integrative Health is to promote wellness and fitness which ultimately manifest as good health and happiness along with optimal aging. Preventative medicine is crucial in keeping the body disease-free, because without health, life is nothing. Without health, life is not life; it is only a state of langour and suffering – an image of death – Buddha
Age is simply a number. It is never too early or too late to take control of your health and start taking care of yourself. No matter where you may be in life, you always have the chance to not only feel better, but to feel your best. You don’t have to be better than everybody else…you just have to be better than you have ever been. So why wait? Yesterday you said today. When you feel like quitting, think about why you started. If you don’t like starting over, stop quitting.
Make this your new mantra….BE HEALTHY. BE HAPPY. BE AWESOME!
When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need. ~ Ayurvedic proverb
