Integrative Medicine is the "intelligent combination of conventional and alternative medicine" - Dr. Andrew Weil (Founder of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine). This perspective of medicine focuses on the health of the patient and enhancing that health, rather than focusing on the disease.
Various modalities may include homeopathy, botanical medicine, nutrition, mind-body medicine, exercise, Osteopathic Manual Medicine, and many more.
Dr. Mistretta finds this approach to healing to be much more gratifying for patients (and himself). He believes in the body's innate natural healing mechanism, and wants to focus on enhancing that in each patient.
