Integrative Medicine: A holistic approach to healthcare

The time has come to re-imagine medicine as care for the body not cure for a disease.
In his acclaimed book, Beating Cancer with Nutrition, Patrick Quill in, says that Western medicine merely scratches the surface when it comes to an understanding and treating disease. He writes, “There is a basic flaw in our thinking about healthcare. We treat symptoms, and not the underlying cause of the disease. The only way to provide long-lasting relief in any degenerative disease, like cancer, arthritis and heart disease, is to reverse the basic cause of the disease.”
It is a sad but undeniable truth that conventional medicine has fallen short in improving the overall health of human beings. It did contribute to increasing life expectancy rates, but not the quality of life. While one can look at public policies, failure of governments and environmental degradation as factors that caused this, the fundamental failure of conventional medicine has been the flaw in its approach to health as Patrick stated.
Addressing this fundamental flaw and rethinking healthcare from a whole new, different perspective is what Integrative Medicine does. It is a rather young field of medicine (not entirely alternative) that is giving hope to millions of patients looking for a better quality of life as well as opening up new frontiers in the prevention of disease. The pioneer, passionate evangelist and the leading practitioner of Integrative Medicine in India are Dr Praveen Saxena.
What Is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative Medicine is an approach to healthcare that combines the best of Western scientific medicine with a broader understanding of the nature of the illness, healing, and wellness. It is easy to deploy and provide; complements and augments conventional medicine rather than going against it, and its use not only improves care for patients but also enhances the cost-effectiveness of healthcare delivery for providers and caregivers.
Integrative Medicine is a more practical strategy than conventional medicine. Keeping the patient at the centre of care, it focuses on the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. It seeks to treat the whole person, addressing the effects of the long-term and complex interplay between a range of biological, behavioural, psychosocial and environmental influences. This process enhances the ability of individuals to get well, and most importantly, to stay well.
A Few Other Fundamental Principles:
The patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process. Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive are used wherever possible. Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and prevention of illness are given greater importance. The care is individualized to best address the person’s unique conditions, needs, and circumstances.

Dr. Saxena’s Holistic Approach
According to Dr. Saxena, many medical problems take years to germinate and affect the human body at multiple levels. Conventional therapies,while treating symptoms but not the root cause, actually end up hurting the human body in the long run. In many cases, the system gradually becomes immune to the medications and sooner than later stops responding appropriately. Unfortunately, the approach adopted by conventional medicine is to prescribe even more potent medications.
At Dr. Saxena’s clinic, the objective is free the patients from this vicious cycle of dependency on medicines and the burden of carrying some form of illness throughout their lives. Their focus is on the solution to the problem that is based on complete, long-term and individualized care, which is easy on the body and smooth on the pocket. They are committed to solving the problems and not managing them.
