About Hunterdon Healthcare’s Integrative Medicine Program

    The mission of Hunterdon Healthcare’s Integrative Medicine Program is to empower individuals to achieve a state of optimal health by nurturing mind, body and spirit, through the integration of evidence-based complementary and conventional therapies. Our vision is to develop a nationally recognized Integrative Medicine Center that provides the residents of Hunterdon County with a comprehensive approach to care, linking the mind, body and spirit.

What is Integrative Medicine?

  Integrative Medicine is defined as an approach to care that seeks to integrate the best of Western scientific medicine with a broader understanding of the nature of illness, healing, and wellness.  It treats the whole person by examining the influence a person’s lifestyle, relationships, diet and state of mind has on their overall health and offering treatment options that support the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

    By better controlling symptoms such as anxiety, stress, pain, nausea, insomnia and fatigue and offering dietary and lifestyle changes that can relieve or even reverse the effects of chronic diseases, Integrative Medicine emphasizes patient empowerment and prevention.

    By helping patients recognize risk factors that place them at higher risk for preventable diseases and factors and offering gentle, holistic treatment option and self-management tools Integrative Medicine can help:

  • Prevent or reverse health problems
  • Treat digestive disorders
  • Treat women’s health concerns such as PMS and menopause
  • Manage chronic pain
  • Support lifestyle changes
  • Reduce stress and high blood pressure
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Manage allergies
  • Support weight loss

    True healing is not limited to physical recovery, but must also include a recovery of mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our program incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach to the healing experience that includes a variety of complimentary modalities that treat the whole patient, not just their condition.
