In today’s disease management model of healthcare, doctors and clinicians are often required to take a reactive approach to illness rather than a preventive approach to overall health and wellness. They may rarely see a patient until that patient is sick, and by then, the clock is ticking. They may have 15 minutes or less to diagnose and treat a patient because their waiting room is full of other sick people.
It’s little wonder so many people accept pain, stress, lack of energy or the inability to focus as realities of life. Yet, these are issues that only get worse with age. And when they become too much to bear, patients seek the care of “specialists” who treat each symptom separately with a different medication.
This is not health care. It is sick care.
At Princeton Integrative Health, we believe in health care that proactively prevents and reverses disease and dysfunction by getting to the root cause of the problem. We treat you holistically, bringing your systems into balance, to help you discover what it means to be truly well.
This is the heart of integrative health, which combines conventional medicine with evidence-based nutrition and lifestyle healing therapies. At PIH, we can show you how a commitment to simple lifestyle changes can help you to prevent heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses, or manage any pre-existing conditions you may have, such as chronic pain, high cholesterol, autoimmune conditions or arthritis.
We take time to understand how both physical and emotional factors affect your health. Our doctor and functional nutrition and lifestyle coach are integral members of your overall healthcare team. And, ultimately, your life.
The first step to taking control of your health and reducing the risk of chronic illness is feeding your brain. Educate yourself so you can make better health decisions for yourself and your family.
