Why an Integrative and Functional Medicine Approach?
One of GLIM practitioner Maureen Milota's mentors, Dr. Andrew Weil, the grandfather of integrative medicine and the founder and namesake of the University of Arizona Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine describes integrative medicine as "the intelligent combination of conventional and alternative medicine. It's healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, emphasizes lifestyle, and is willing to use all remedies."
If you are interested in returning to an era of medicine where visits are not rushed, the focus is on your unique needs and the health care provider partners with you on a healing plan then integrative medicine is your answer. Integrative medicine involves blending the strengths of conventional medicine with holistic medicine to find the root cause of illness and to develop a personalized wellness plan that encompasses the mind, body and spirit.
GLIM accomplishes this through an individualized patient-centered approach that is rooted in the most current evidenced based medicine.
