What is Integrative Health and Wellness?

Integrative care is personalized, participatory, and relationship-based care promoting optimal health. It emphasizes the healing of the whole person to achieve each individual’s unique physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social health goals. The primary therapies used to achieve these goals are healthy habits (nutrition, activity, sleep, mindful self-care, and fellowship) in a healthy habitat (social, natural, and built environment). Integrative healthcare skillfully uses the best of both conventional and complementary strategies to attain patients' health goals.
