The goal is to unite the best of conventional medicine and other healing systems/therapies brought from cultures and ideas. This type of medicine is based on a model of health and wellness, compared to a disease model. Integrative medicine is geared to the use of low-tech, low-cost interventions. This model recognizes the critical role of how practitioner-patient relationship plays in a patient’s healthcare experience. Its purpose is to care for the whole person by taking into account all of the interrelated physical and nonphysical factors that affect health, wellness, and disease. These include psychosocial and spiritual factors of people’s lives. For Answers to any questions you may have please call Dr. Jimenez at 915-850-0900
