Integrative Medicine is the art and science of optimal healing. It is the evolution of caring for our health and preventing disease, and its use is growing steadily in clinics and the best medical centers worldwide. Integrative Medicine is a way of looking at the root causes of illness and suffering, and preventing and treating disease by enabling the optimal function of the body and mind together. Integrative Medicine re-affirms the healing potential of the doctor-patient relationship, and incorporates best practices from conventional medicine and complementary healing practices.
Dr. Shiller’s practice of integrative medicine begins with his knowledge of the body’s structure and mechanics. He knows the bones, muscles, sinews and cartilage, the energy system that animates them, and the integration of their structure and function – the way they support, or distort, the function of organs and our mobility. The right techniques and exercise help you make the best of your structure and mobility.
Nutrient status, detoxification, immune-balance, digestive function, cellular energy production, bacterial flora—these are some of the things that determine the health and function of your cells and metabolism. We live our biochemistry, every moment. With the right guidance, you can make choices that make it vital and empowering.
Positive thoughts, emotions, sense of purpose, connection, generosity, joy — they touch every cell and organ through a network of nerves, neurochemistry, and energetic integration. They move us toward health, or away from it. You can learn tools and techniques to align your mind and emotions with health and vitality.
Our state of health and wellness is the interplay of structure, mobility, biochemistry, mind, energy, and spirit. Our organ ‘systems’ (cardiovascular, digestive, neurological, muscular, psychological, etc) are just labels that make specialization and study more convenient. Your body and mind is an integrated whole. Health and healing arise from the whole when it is in balance.
The integrative medicine approach makes Dr. Shiller an unusually thorough and astute diagnostician and effective provider – often with gentler techniques than we’ve come to expect from 21st century medicine. He works in partnership with you, and will enable you to follow a treatment plan rooted in your actual condition, and who you are as a person, as well as a patient.
