Integrative Medicine Q & A

How does Dr. Agresti practice integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine considers the whole person – your mind, body, and spirit -- when providing care. You and Dr. Agresti are partners in your wellness and healing. He’ll consider both conventional and alternative ways to prompt your body to heal and boost your wellness. When possible, Dr. Agresti seeks the least-invasive therapies possible to support his patients’ health.

In addition to addressing immediate health issues, Dr. Agresti will work with you to try to prevent future illnesses. He believes that maintaining a good diet, staying active, and keeping hormones balanced are the keys to wellness.

How can an integrative medical approach improve my health?

Dr. Agresti doesn’t look at you as a collection of symptoms. Instead, he’ll work with you to address immediate concerns as well as support your long-term health. He offers:

  • Diet-and-exercise guidance
  • Hormone replacement therapies
  • Aesthetic treatments
  • Addiction support
  • Proactive health treatments to deter the effects of aging and disease

Other alternative and complementary therapies recommended might include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Herbal medicine
  • Massage
  • Yoga
  • Stress-reduction techniques

This gives you a more personalized treatment strategy that benefits your health and gets at the deeper causes of any illness.

How does integrative medicine differ from conventional medicine?

Conventional medicine uses synthetic drugs and surgery to treat most ailments. Integrative medicine combines conventional medicine with more complementary methods, including dietary recommendations and bioidentical hormone replacement. Instead of a disease-based approach, integrative medicine, as practiced by Dr. Agresti, provides medical care with an emphasis on healing.

The relationship between doctor and patient is therapeutic; Dr. Agresti considers and applies all appropriate conventional and alternative therapies. An integrative approach promises you more time and attention as compared to some conventional medical treatments.

Why is integrative medicine effective?

Integrative medicine respects the connection between the brain and immune system. Physical symptoms drive the development of your treatment plan, but so do any possible psychological, spiritual, and social factors that might affect your health.
