Integrative medicine combines conventional Western medicine with alternative or complementary treatments, such as herbology, acupressure, biofeedback, and stress reduction techniques -- all in the effort to treat the whole person.
Both doctors and patients alike are bonding with the philosophy of integrative medicine and its whole-person approach -- designed to treat the person, not just the disease.
An estimated 50% of patients seen at the Kinesiology Center have been to one or more doctors and are still suffering or have been misdiagnosed. Dr. Kantor's approach is not solely based on whether a diagnostic test (blood, stool, urine, X-ray, MRI etc.) is positive or negative, but is interpreted through patient presentation and symptoms.
It is not uncommon for a patient to present normal test results based in Western medicine, but remain physically symptomatic. This same patient when evaluated by Eastern medicine standards and a more integrated approach may have many abnormal findings that can be effectively treated.
The integrated approach is extremely comprehensive and combines several methods of evaluation and treatment. Combining Eastern and Western philosophies of medicine gives tremendous insight into the underlying problem or cause symptoms, and offers patients the best of both worlds.
