About Integrative Health Care and Quality of Life

Integrative health is a holistic, patient-focused approach to healthcare and wellness, including mental, emotional, functional, social and community aspects. Patients who seek an Integrative health physician tend to experience difficult to treat conditions and have tried conventional treatments with little or no success of long-term improvement.

The Marcus Institute of Integrative Health at FAU Medicine combines a variety of evidence-based clinical services with the goal of meeting our patients’ health care needs.

Physicians Treat the Whole Person

Our physicians examine everything that makes up a patient’s health, including factors that can lead to disease, affect nutrition, exercise and stress. Integrative healthcare enhances current medical practice and improves patient care by balancing conventional and complementary approaches in a coordinated way. These approaches to healthcare provide well-coordinated care between medical providers, particularly with our Primary Care physicians at the FAU Medicine practice.

Ultimately, our patients and physicians are partners in the healing process, and as a result, all factors that influence a particular patient’s health and wellness are taken into consideration.

  • Patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.
  • Emphasis on treating whole person to facilitate overall health and wellness
  • Physicians use evidence-based complementary approaches to provide well-coordinated care between medical providers
  • Delving into patients’ self-care routines facilitates a balanced treatment and prevention plan

Personalized Health Plan

Your medical history and overall health can be influenced by many self-care routines in your life such as work-life balance, lifestyle and environment, connections with others, as well as your approach to physical activity, sleep, nutrition, and mental health, among others. Our integrative health physicians delve into your unique experiences to develop a personalized plan that can impact your long-term health and well-being.
