Why Integrative Medicine Is Better for Your Health

Cathy Ochs, PA-C, Redding Integrative Medicine, exposes the truth, why integrative medicine should be considered as a primary method of health care.

Our current healthcare system is broken. Patients are unhappy with short doctor visits that focus on a prescription to treat their symptom while ignoring the cause of their problem.

A recent survey of 1,000 patients showed one-third spent less than ten minutes with their doctor, and 93% less than 30 minutes. Seven out of ten Americans take at least one prescription drug daily. This drug focused system results in one million people needlessly dying each year from a drug related side effect.

We don’t have a health care system but a dangerous symptom management system.

A Better Way

This system is great at helping us avoid pain and saving lives. But it often stops there. Addressing the root cause of what brought on your problem and fixing this is rarely done. Half of adult Americans live with a chronic health problem.

Instead, our system has become very good at keeping symptoms at bay with drugs and ignoring the cause. This creates an unhealthy nation. The Commonwealth Fund ranks the U.S. last in quality care of 11 developed nations while spending the most in health care dollars. Clearly something is wrong.

Excellent Solution

Integrative medicine is an excellent solution for our broken system and improving our health. Integrative medicine practitioners spend time with you getting to the root cause of your problem. This cannot be achieved in a ten minute visit. We focus on using natural therapies to support your body to correct the underlying problem and achieve optimal health. Prescription drugs are used only when there are no alternatives available and for the shortest time possible.
