Integrative Medicine Q & A

What is integrative medicine?

Dr. Doyle offers an integrative medicine approach to treatment, which means she puts you, the patient, at the center of your health care. She considers all the factors that may contribute to your well-being, including physical, environmental, mental, social, spiritual, and emotional factors.

Because every patient’s health experience is unique, she customizes treatment plans to your specific needs, promoting your optimal health.

How is integrative medicine different from conventional medicine?

Conventional medicine involves the use of synthetic drugs and surgery to treat health conditions. It can be quite effective in handling emergency situations, such as an automobile accident or heart attack. But conventional medicine can be invasive, cause side effects, and be expensive.

With an integrative medicine approach, Dr. Doyle treats you as a whole person — rather than a collection of symptoms. She is your partner in the healing process. The principles of integrative medicine that she employs include:

  • Using all the healing sciences to help you get better; this includes mindfulness therapies and alternative medicine approaches when appropriate
  • Consideration of all factors that may influence your health, including environment, social conditions, and physical considerations
  • Focus on natural, less invasive healing strategies when possible
  • Health promotion as well as disease treatment
  • Personalized care for wellness

Dr. Doyle seeks to educate you on healthy behaviors and skills so you can effectively promote your own health and well-being. She combines state-of-the-art, conventional treatment strategies with other safe and effective therapies, including lifestyle changes such as diet, exercise, yoga, and meditation.

How do you benefit from an integrative medicine approach?

Many patients appreciate an integrative medicine approach because it aligns with their values and philosophies of health and life. Customized, personal care that treats you as an individual can lead to better care and health management.

Research suggests that an integrative approach also creates better health benefits in both treatment and prevention of chronic conditions.

As an integrative medicine practitioner, Dr. Doyle selects the very best, scientifically validated treatments and therapies from conventional and alternative medicine sources.
