Providence Integrative Medicine Program
“At Providence we believe connected and integrated care honors health care modalities that our patients are using in our community. Since 2002, when Providence first opened our Integrative Medicine clinic, we have been using evidence-based medicine with regards to non-conventional therapies to help patients optimize their quality of life regardless of their health issues. We look forward to continuing to grow our program in order to meet the needs of our patients.” Loch S. Chandler, ND, MPA:HA, MSOM, LAc
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, therapeutic massage, chiropractic medicine and dietary counseling.
