"Conventional medicine should be a vital part of every person’s plan for good health. By adding evidence-based complementary therapies (such as acupuncture and naturopathy) to that approach, Providence maximizes a patient’s ability to recover, to live well and to flourish.” –Miles Hassell, M.D.
With an emphasis on positive and proactive health management, Providence Integrative Medicine Program offers an excellent complement to conventional medicine. As part of the multidisciplinary treatment model at Providence Health & Services, our naturopathic physicians work alongside a patient’s other care team members.
The goal of integrative medicine is to help patients achieve optimal health, even in situations where they simply don’t feel well, but don’t have a diagnosis. Providence Integrative Medicine Program providers use therapies that are supported by modern medical research. Our expert clinicians are trained to provide treatment that is current, safe and evidence-based.
Modern research supports the use of complementary medicine to treat conditions such as:
- Side effects of cancer treatment
- Chronic pain syndromes
- Skin disorders
- Heartburn, ulcers and esophageal reflux
- Irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease
- Weight problems
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Metabolic syndrome, high blood sugars and type 2 diabetes
Because we take time to get to know you as a whole person, we are able to provide reasonable and appropriate naturopathic care that is tailored to your individual health needs. Offerings include acupuncture, naturopathy and dietary counseling.
