PHILOSOPHY

TREAT THE WHOLE PERSON

The Integrated Health Center Philosophy

(203) 259-2700

Our treatment philosophy is based on working with you as a whole person rather than simply as a patient with a collection of symptoms.

Together we can help you achieve a high energy level, a respect for your body and its needs, an awareness of your place within the surrounding environment, and a sense of pleasure and confidence in your ability to manage your own needs.

Our goal is to provide you with a unique approach to treatment by combining the wisdom of traditional healing with modern medicine and your personal health goals. We accomplish this by serving you as:

• Your Teacher…Ongoing Health Education We’ll teach you the importance of achieving balance with your physical environment, how you can reduce stress, how to eat a balanced diet, and much more. This knowledge will motivate you to adhere to your treatment plan, ensuring its success.

• Your Guide… Control of Your Own Health As you learn more about improving your wellness, our role will shift to long-term support, empowering you to take an increasingly active role in managing your own health.

• Your Coach…Create Comprehensive Treatment We will develop a comprehensive treatment plan designed for your specific needs. This will enable you to enjoy a variety of treatments that will support your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

• Your Partner…Proactive Partnership Philosophy We believe strongly in the importance of the patient-physician relationship. This relationship is ultimately based on mutual trust and the common goals of achieving and maintaining your well-being.
