What is Integrative Medicine?

You are not your disease, symptoms, or whatever is ailing you. You are a person, and a person who deserves to be treated as such. That is the backbone philosophy of integrative medicine (IM) and it is what Dr. Onat firmly believes in.

IM reaffirms the importance of the relationship between the patient and practitioner, focusing on the whole person. It is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches so healthcare professionals and patients can achieve optimal health and healing.

With this philosophy, doctors like Esra Onat dedicate more time for each patient to create a relationship in which the treatment plan is one both parties are comfortable with. IM is meant to treat the patient's body, mind, and spirit.

Integrative medicine involves the best of both the Western and Eastern medicine worlds:

doctor-patient
relationship

informed decision-
making
by patients
•Importance of understanding the
whole person
from a
biopsychosocial perspective

healthcare delivery
system
rather than change in
biomedical perspective
 
Personalized Medicine in the East
•Individualized
pattern diagnosis
•Holistic
understanding of illness
and health
•Importance of
patient
participation
in the process of
stimulating body’s
innate healing
mechanisms
•Focus on
medicine
rather than
healthcare delivery system
