‘‘ Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.’’ World Health Organisation.
While some of the therapies used may be nonconventional or even alternative in their own right, a guiding principle within integrative medicine is to use therapies that integrate with the medical model and which have high-quality evidence to support them.
The integrative medical approach includes all aspects of lifestyle and all that which embraces the whole person …body, mind, spirit and emotion. Time is spent with the client to listen to their history or in essence;â€˜their storyâ€™. The uniqueness of each story and the associated expression of health and vitality is determined by the interactions of environmental factors, our emotional and physiological response to stress, nutrition, and our life style choices… all of which in turn influence the status of our immune systems.
The potential success of the integrated medical approach is determined by the unique therapeutic relationship created between the therapist and the client. Fundamentally the willingness of the client to acknowledge possible harmful perceptions, attitudes or habits influencing their health-defining behaviour, and their openess to learning new coping skills, greatly enhances the positive outcome of this approach. The ability of the therapist to be a catalyst for such a positive shift is determined by training, wisdom, experience. The team of therapists at TLCThe Lymph Clinic have a collective recognition of the uniqueness of each individual. Their passion for the whole person to be treated and their combined therapeutic experience have truly been instrumental in creating the unique centre of excellence.
