"It is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human being that physicians separate the soul from the body." -- Plato
At Duke Integrative Medicine, we believe in partnerships -- partnerships where patients and health care providers work together to develop a health plan to address the whole person, because we believe there is a powerful interrelationship between the mind, body, spirit and community in both health and disease.
The practice of medicine that reaffirms this partnership between practitioner and patient has come to be called "integrative medicine." It focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, health care professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
At Duke Integrative Medicine, we draw from all of the best strategies to create a plan to help you optimize your health. We provide you with the opportunity to immerse yourself deeply into this healing experience and then we partner with you to implement your plan over time.
