Overview

Overview

Integrative Medicine techniques support the body's natural ability to heal, reducing stress and promoting a state of relaxation that leads to better health. It can help you achieve optimal health when you engage in your own healing and feel empowered to make lifestyle changes. Incorporating one or more Integrative Medicine services into your healthcare regimen will help you regain control of your well-being.

Integrative Medicine uses modalities such as acupuncture, chiropractic manipulation and relaxation techniques to reduce pain; dietary and herbal approaches to manage diseases such as diabetes and fibromyalgia; and group support to change habits associated with obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Lifestyle Medicine is a branch of medicine that emphasizes the use of whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, stress relief practices, restorative sleep, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for prevention, treatment and reversal of chronic disease.

Scientific evidence is clear - poor lifestyle choices are the root cause of modern chronic diseases. Adults with common chronic conditions who adhere to healthy self-care practices experience rapid, significant, clinically meaningful and sustainable improvements in their health.

The practices, techniques and services offered that most patients find helpful include:

Medical consults and several complementary therapies are now offered via an online appointment called Cleveland Clinic Express Care (or Virtual Visits). To make an appointment or learn more about any of these services, call 216.448.4325 option 4.
