Have you ever heard the saying ‘it takes a village’? Well, we believe that same approach applies to health and well-being care! At ModiHealth we believe in a holistic or whole-person approach to treating illness, disease, general healthcare, prevention and optimizing health. What true holistic care means is an integrative team of different specialists working to support care of the whole person in mind, body, heart and spirit.
What is Integrative Health?
Integrative health combines traditional medicine with a diverse range of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies to treat the whole person. ModiHealth takes this integrative approach a step further and integrates a diverse range of coaches to bridge the gap between short-term immediate care and implementing permanent lifestyle changes to help patients achieve a better quality of life in the long-term. These therapies which range from acupuncture and massage therapy, to teaching various stress management techniques—are designed to supplement traditional healing. Integrative care is patient-centered care, and it is about the collaboration between patients and the practitioners who help them heal.
Traditional or allopathic medicine refers to the practice of conventional medicine that uses pharmaceuticals or physical interventions (like surgery) to treat or suppress symptoms or pathophysiologic processes of disease. Traditional medicine works well when you have a life-threatening issue, need urgent care, suffering from severe symptoms, or there is an immediate threat on your life. It is often the first line of treatment on the path to health. Traditional or western medicine saves lives daily.
Complimentary and Alternative Medicine
Complementary and Alternative Medicine are treatments used alongside of or instead of traditional (mainstream) therapies. Some people also refer to it as “integrative,” or “complementary” medicine. These types of treatments are very effective in treating underlying issues in chronic conditions that traditional medicine is often unable to treat. Some types of effective alternative therapies include acupuncture, chiropractic, energy therapies, herbal medicine, yoga, massage therapies, and ayurvedic medicine.
There are many different types of ways to increase mental and emotional health. Everything from lifestyle changes to getting one-on-one support. Mental health is an important aspect of being healthy, it impacts every area of life. We have numerous board certified mental health practitioners and holistic emotional health practitioners to support your well-being and mental health needs.
Nutrition, Fitness, Health & Life Coaching
Coaching and more specifically health coaching, is becoming a very effective part of extending patient care outside of the office. Engaging patients in positive behavior changes can improve their overall health and reduce the amount of medical care they need. Trained health coaches can take on a lot of these responsibilities to advance lifestyle changes, provide nutritional counseling, wellness, prevention, and patient health. A health coach can bring an extra boost to methods for both prevention and treatment.
Integrative Health Model
Integrative Health and Wellness Model
The ModiHealth approach is an integrative health model. This approach to healthcare is based in traditional Western medicine but seeks to integrate Complementary and Alternative Medicine, or CAM for short, to treat the whole person. Alternative medicine is a term that describes medical treatments that are used in addition to traditional (mainstream) therapies. ModiHealth is about connection, offering alternative therapies and services that work alongside traditional medical therapies to heal the mind, body, and spirit to achieve true health and well-being.
