Integrative medicine focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease, so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.
It is attractive to many people because of its emphasis on treating the whole person, its promotion of good health and well-being, its valuing of prevention, and it is often a more personalised approach to patient concerns.
Dr Badenhorst uses conventional and integrative medicine in combination and this combination seems to be superior to either one on it’s own.
