What does Integrative Medicine Treat?
Integrative Medicine brings together the best of mainstream medicine with complementary therapies to support wellness and healing. Natural medicines and mind-body therapies are prescribed to promote healing, enhance vitality, and fill in the gaps of conventional medicine. Standard medical treatment is used whenever necessary and appropriate. Integrative Medicine has much to offer anyone seeking greater well being, and is particularly valuable for folks with:
- Cancer (during and after treatment)
- Stress symptoms
- GI problems
- Heart and blood pressure problems
- Medication intolerance
- Chronic symptom burden
Integrative Medicine brings careful attention to food choice and lifestyle. Quality nutritional supplements and herbal medicines are prescribed on an individual basis. Care plans often include mind-body training, and referrals for acupuncture and bodywork.
Dr. Rosenzweig provides office consultations and participates in many, major insurance plans. Please check with the receptionist for the most current list of plans. Telephone consultations and some mind-body therapies are not covered by insurance.
Dr. Rosenzweig is not a primary care provider, although he is available to treat many general medical issues, both acute and chronic. He does not have an in-patient hospital practice; patients who require admission to a hospital are referred to an appropriate specialist.
