Medical second opinion also helps to choose the best holistic natural treatment strategy for strange and complicated symptoms. Seek medical second opinion on unclear strange and mysterious symptoms and be confident that your treatment is the best. Integrative Medicine treatment examples. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Let’s turn to some specific areas of health and health problems. Where do you find application of integrative medicine most beneficial? Maybe you can mention some specific areas of medicine. Dr. Kevin Barrows, MD. Integrative Medicine specialist, Director, Mindfulness Program, UCSF. Certainly. I find Integrative Medicine useful in some very common medical problems like hypertension. Hyperlipidemia. Conventional medicine is comfortable with these problems too. But I also find Integrative Medicine useful. It is very useful in certain diseases where conventional medicine isn’t well equipped to handle the problem. So that would be fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease. And then I see many patients where they have some complicated problem. They have a collection of symptoms. For example, symptoms are suggestive of autoimmune disease. But they don’t fit into a diagnostic category. It is not lupus or rheumatoid arthritis or Sjogren’s syndrome. Therefore, the conventional physicians will not treat the patient. Because physicians don’t want to take the risk of using the pharmaceuticals. Sometimes they don’t have a clear diagnosis. Sometimes they do not know what they’re treating. Integrative medicine is nice. We can offer these gentle therapies that might actually help the patient. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Even when we don’t have a final diagnosis. Integrative medicine treatment examples: high cholesterol, hypertension, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraine, inflammatory bowel syndrome, depression.
