What is Integrative Medicine?

IM sees a person as a holistic being, whose integrated nature consists of mind, body and spirit. These are the three fundamental elements of human wellness. All three elements are equally significant, therefore, they ought to receive equal medical care and attention, with the goal of creating a sustainable healthy balance between them. This wellness-balance between the three fundamental elements of the human nature is the secret to good health, joy and contentment in life.

Medical treatment by Integrative Medicine methods includes:

Physical treatment of the body – raising and maintaining high body vitality in order to awaken the body’s self-healing power and to boost the body’s natural immunity capacity in the face of diseases and illnesses resulting form internal as well as external sources.

Emotional therapy – resolving emotional conflicts as well as hidden or exposed unprocessed or untreated traumas. These traumas, when left untreated, leave a real physical neurological imprint on the body. They destabilize the body’s natural fundamental balance, cause chronic energy loss, weaken the body’s natural self-healing and immunity powers, thus exposing the body to serious and chronic health conditions.

Spiritual therapy – is about finding the connection to each person’s true purpose in life, to the inner gift that each person was born to bring forth into this world, and to the meaning of life, for which it is worth while to get up every morning and pursue fulfillment.

IMFA was established to increase public awareness of the qualities and advantages of Integrative Medicine; to promote IM as a legitimate, effective and widely recognized wellness approach; and to contribute to a reality in which there is equal accessibility of IM treatments to every person and to every home.
