Integrative medicine is an over-arching approach to whole-person care which focuses on:
Health rather than illness
The active involvement of you as an individual in achieving maximum health and well-being – whether you are ill or seeking to prevent illness
The importance of the therapeutic relationship between you and your health care professional
Integrative Medicine combines healing from the ‘best of all worlds’ allopathic, complementary, alternative, psychological, spiritual, environmental, nutritional and self-help
It is an approach that is not limited by any particular belief or ideology
David now works as a freelance General Practitioner in the NHS (in Cumbria England) as an Integrative Medicine Physician. Alongside this, he is the Medical Director of Nutricur (see www.nutricur.com) a small company aimed at providing unbiased healthcare advice and appropriate supplement therapies.
