We Take a “Whole Person” Approach to Your Health
We Believe in a Universe of Wellness
…where health is enriched by knowledge and practice, both ancient and modern
…where the most advanced medical science and compassion meet mind, body and spirit
…where the ultimate goal is wellness, vitality and quality of life
At Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine, we take a “whole person” approach to health and wellness. We believe that health is dynamic, continually influenced by how we live our lives and how we relate to the world around us. And, we believe that healing starts from within.
From the moment you walk through the doors of the health and healing center, you sense that the integrative approach is unlike any other. We blend evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies with conventional Western medicine in a “best of both worlds” approach to treating disease, healing, and improving health.
Collaboration from East to West
Because there is no magic pill for health and well-being, the road to healing requires a diverse, collaborative team of integrative medicine professionals dedicated to treating mind, body and spirit.
From physicians and nurses trained at the country’s most prestigious medical centers to our full spectrum of licensed and certified practitioners in allopathic and alternative medicine, the center’s specialists are at the forefront of integrative medicine.
Who we serve
We care for people with cancer, diabetes, stress, women’s health issues, and many other health concerns.
We empower you to promote your own healing with a full range of conventional and complementary treatments and therapies. Through clinical research, education, prevention, and lifestyle changes, you’ll discover powerful new ways to take control of your health.
