For patients diagnosed with neurological disorders, integrative medicine should be an integral part of therapy. The lack of effective conventional treatments for such conditions as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) leave many patients searching for alternatives. Although there usually isn’t a pill or procedure to ‘fix’ most neurological conditions, patients can benefit from working with an integrative medical physician who will think outside the box.
Each patient is unique and may have a variety of predisposing factors that need to be addressed. Treatment is individualized and is based on both what is discovered in the assessment and what research indicates is effective. The patient is an active participant in this process.
