How is FGHCs Approach to Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine Different from Traditional Medicine?

Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine

Integrative healthcare, also known as integrative medicine, differs from traditional medicine.  Faithfully Guided Health Center (FGHC) practices a unique type of integrative healthcare that we also refer to as lifestyle medicine. Let’s take a look at how FGHC’s approach to lifestyle and integrative medicine differs from most traditional medicine practices.

Lifestyle and integrative medicine strives to identify the root of the problem

When a patient complains of pain or other symptoms, it’s standard procedure for most primary care physicians to write a prescription.  While drugs can be effective in alleviating symptoms, it is important to investigate the root cause of the symptoms.  FGHC’s lifestyle and integrative medicine practitioners take as much time as needed to identify and treat the actual condition vs. only alleviating symptoms.

Lifestyle and integrative healthcare strives to help patients achieve optimum spiritual, emotional and physical health

Lifestyle and integrative medicine centers on whole body health.  At FGHC, we focus on treating the spirit, mind and body.  Our in-house laboratory allows us to conduct a full range of diagnostic tests to help us gain a better understanding of your physical condition.  We have in-house faith-based counseling practitioners on staff to help you grow both spiritually and emotionally.  Our practitioners consult with one another and work with you to help you achieve optimal spiritual, emotional and physical health.

Lifestyle and integrative healthcare uses a combination of traditional and non-traditional therapies to help patients achieve and maintain overall health

Our healthcare clinicians utilize a variety of modalities to help you achieve and maintain your overall health.  Some patients benefit from restorative therapeutic services such as infrared sauna therapy and targeted LED light therapy.  Others may find it advantageous to take part in fitness and/or holy yoga classes.  FGHC’s approach to lifestyle and integrative healthcare combines non-traditional therapies such as targeted LED light therapy and activities including holy yoga classes with traditional primary care services and diagnostics to help our patients achieve and maintain overall health.

If you are tired of the same old traditional approach to your health, we encourage you to schedule a complimentary tour of our practice.  You can personally meet our lifestyle and integrative healthcare clinicians and faith-based counseling practitioners, observe our infrared sauna therapy room, see our targeted LED light therapy equipment, visit our therapeutic mud bath room, and learn more about our fitness and holy yoga classes.  Give us a call today and take that first step toward optimal health!
