Why Focus On Integrative Health & Integrative Care Services?
Integrative care services can improve wellness and well-being while reducing stress, pain, fear, trauma, anxiety, and depression. Many children with complex medical conditions often endure long and frequent hospitalizations, painful and traumatic procedures, and scary discussions. Caregivers of children with complex medical conditions are often stressed, scared, and exhausted. They - along with their children - can experience medical trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), toxic and chronic stress; and feelings of helplessness, loneliness, and desperation. Some of these families also live in high stress environments in which the children have Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) beyond their medical trauma.
Families are searching for additional support when they find that medicine and medical treatments alone are not fully addressing the needs of their minds, bodies, and spirits. We believe in the importance of holistic and integrative health care. We also hope to improve the quality of these people's lives, while making their every-day life experience easier.
