What is Integrative Healthcare?

At Zumbro Valley Health Center, we encourage patients to take an active role in their healthcare working alongside their practitioner. Integrative health care focuses on treating the whole person, including the mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and community aspects. We work alongside other community organizations to provide the best possible care.

Principles of Integrative Medicine

A partnership between the patient and the practitioner

Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness, disease – including mind, body, and spirit

Use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response

Appropriate consideration is given to using of less-invasive and less-harmful interventions, when possible, while addressing the whole person in addition to the disease.

The concept that medicine is based on good science, is inquiry-driven and open to critical consideration of new paradigms
