Integrative Medicine Q & A

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is an approach to treating health conditions that focuses on practitioner/patient relationships. It puts patients’ needs first and addresses physical, mental, emotional, social, environmental, and spiritual influences on overall health and wellness.

At LifeBalance Integrative Health & Wellness, Dr. Glover employs personalized strategies customized to your unique needs, conditions, and circumstances. She uses holistic therapies whenever possible to enhance your body’s natural ability to fight illness and disease.

What are the benefits of integrative medicine?

When choosing Dr. Glover to care for you, you’ll reap the following health and wellness benefits not always available with traditional, Western medicine practices:

  • More time spent with medical staff
  • Custom treatment plans tailored just for you
  • Holistic, natural remedies, including herbal medications and supplements
  • Less addictive pain medication
  • Nutrition education
  • Innovative technologies and treatments
  • Telemedicine options for added patient convenience
  • Cost savings
  • More energy, better mental focus, and less chronic pain

Because Dr. Glover is a registered dietitian in addition to a board-certified family physician, she uses her nutritional expertise to optimize your health and prevent or treat diseases.

Why might I require integrative medicine?

The warm, welcoming medical staff at LifeBalance Integrative Health & Wellness treats a wide range of acute and chronic health conditions. If you’re tired of taking medications with unpleasant side effects or undergoing expensive surgeries, try holistic medicine to treat the underlying cause of:

  • Chronic disease, such as heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes
  • Acute illnesses
  • Chronic aches, pain, and fatigue
  • Migraines 
  • Mental fatigue
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Hormonal imbalances

Dr. Glover pinpoints the cause of fatigue or discomfort to resolve your symptoms quickly. You and Dr. Glover are a team, working together to create a custom treatment plan that improves your mind, body, and spirit.

Which treatment will I need?

The treatment you need for a specific health condition depends on its severity and what you’re comfortable with. Making lifestyle changes, such as exercising more, eating healthier, and lowering stress, might be all you need to achieve optimal health.

Dr. Glover may recommend herbal medicines, dietary supplements, or other natural remedies – such as physical therapy, massage, or acupuncture – to ease chronic pain and enhance healing. She recommends the least invasive options first, and completes minor surgical procedures when necessary to give you the best possible long-term results.
