At Vitality Co-Op, our mission is to bring the profound healing power of integrative medicine to the San Diego Metropolitan area by setting the standard for patient-centered care through cooperation between the conventional medical community, alternative healthcare practitioners of varied disciplines, and the people we commonly serve.
The guiding principles of integrative medicine include:
-A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
-Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
-Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, spirit and community as well as body
-A philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically
-Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms
-Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible
-Use of the broader concepts of promotion of health and the prevention of illness as well as the treatment of disease
-Training of practitioners to be models of health and healing, committed to the process of self-exploration and self-development
We are so pleased to be creating vibrant health in partnership with YOU and look forward to seeing you in our clinic soon.
