Heal Your Body, Mind and Spirit
Integrative medicine combines both alternative therapies and Western medicine. Alternative therapies include treatments such as herbal medicine, acupuncture and nutritional wellness. Alternative medicine has been gaining popularity and studies have proven their effectiveness in patients that sometimes cannot get the results they need through traditional western approaches. By combining these therapies, the best of both worlds can be achieved and each patient will have specific programs catered to varying needs.

Why You Should Seek an Integrative Medicine Practitioner
Integrative medicine gives practitioners the ability to cast a wide net. Depending on the practitioner’s skill set emphasis may be placed on diet, electromagnetic field (i.e., meridians or chakras), the integrity of the myofascial and spinal alignment, cranial sacral system, or level of awareness. For instance, a client complaining of a migraine headache, instead of being directed to the pharmacy might be treated with something as simple as magnesium, acupuncture, a cranial sacral adjustment, or Chinese herbs. From the integrative physician’s standpoint, the goal and art of practice is to figure out the most non-invasive way to bring relief and prevent reoccurrence. This type of practitioner does not shape their therapy based on a diagnosis but rather seeks to understand the pattern of the client’s complaint within the fuller framework of his or her life.
Dr. Kokayi has been caring for me and my family for about 23 years. He has taken excellent care of my daughter (now 26) since she was a small child, always giving her all the time she needed. He listens. He is an expert in holistic care, and has successfully treated my husband and me with various conditions using a natural approach where other doctors would have prescribed a pill and sent us on our way. We feel so blessed to have him as our family doctor. He is a caring physician and pays attention to each of us as individuals, choosing the appropriate treatment that best suits the situation. If he doesn’t have the answer, he finds someone who does. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
