Integrative medicine reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic, lifestyle approaches, and healthcare disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
Our goal in Integrative Medicine at Smilow Cancer Hospital is to help you, our patient, to navigate the physical, mental and spiritual challenges that may arise during and after cancer therapy. We achieve this by complementing your existing treatment plan with evidence based, readily available interventions such as mind-body work, creative expression and nutritional interventions. We work closely with our colleagues at Smilow to find safe, effective, less invasive care to help ease your journey.
