Integrative Medicine Q & A

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is a branch of medicine that operates on the following six principles:

  • Emphasize the patient-doctor relationship and treatment collaboration
  • Focus on treating the whole person: mind, body, and spirit
  • Treat the underlying cause of medical conditions and encourage the body’s healing responses
  • Operate based on sound scientific medical evidence
  • Incorporate different modalities of medicine into treatment
  • Use the least invasive approach whenever possible

Which integrative medicine services are provided?

The Ageless Institute incorporates many traditional and alternative medical practices into its range of services. In addition to aesthetic services, Dr. Singleton complements his family medicine practice with:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Massage therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Men’s health
  • Women’s health, including gynecology services like Pap smears and birth control
  • Hormone therapy

Dr. Singleton promotes all tenets of healthy living, taking a preventive approach to disease.

How are these integrative services integrated into care?

Dr. Singleton gives each new patient a thorough consultation, which involves an exploration of your medical history, a discussion about your concerns, and a physical exam. Dr. Singleton then orders the appropriate tests for your situation.

Next, he matches you with the treatment modalities that would benefit you the most. Rather than relying on a single medical specialty, integrative medicine is about making use of all the therapies that could help you.

If you have anxiety, for example, Dr. Singleton might discuss options like medication, relaxation techniques, massage, self-care, and healthy lifestyle habits to improve your mood. This approach touches on all three facets of your health: mind, body, and spirit. These layered treatment modalities build on each other to bring you relief.

What are the benefits of integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine gives you access to all available medical treatments, conventional and alternative. Many patients appreciate how this well-rounded treatment approach tends to be more comprehensive and personalized.

If you’re the type of person who values disease prevention and proactive improvement of your health, you might be inclined to pursue integrative medicine. The healing-oriented practice encourages your body’s natural healing mechanisms instead of simply reducing symptoms.

Finally, integrative medicine allows you to receive a variety of medical services under one roof. If this approach interests you, contact Dr. Singleton online or over the phone to set up a consultation.
