WHAT IS INTEGRATED MEDICINE?

Integration. Everyone who has ever been ill has thought, “I am doing what my doctor tells me. But what about alternative medicine?” At Jerusalem Health, we are networked with MD ‘s and certified healers in non-western treatments who work together with the patient to provide not just a core treatment, but essential supplemental treatments. For example, a patient may get a checkup, blood test, advice, and a medicine from an MD, but also need acupuncture and a Chinese herbal treatment.

“Both doctors and patients alike are bonding with the philosophy of integrative medicine and its whole-person approach — designed to treat the person, not just the disease.
IM, as it’s often called, depends on a partnership between the patient and the doctor, where the goal is to treat the mind, body, and spirit, all at the same time.

While some of the therapies used may be nonconventional, a guiding principle within integrative medicine is to use therapies that have some high-quality evidence to support them.”

HELP TO COVER YOUR TREATMENT
Our non-profit fundraising efforts establish a fund that allows patients with financial constraints to receive free or discounted care.

 

INTEGRATED EDUCATION
At Jerusalem Health, we recruit and work with patients and students who are serious about both achieving optimum health and providing it professionally. In this way, we do not just integrate different treatments. .
Often a patient will need help at home. Doctors and students at Jerusalem Health are trained to give quality and compassionate care to patients both in at the clinic and at home.

 

HALACHIC AND COUNSELING SERVICES
But our mission to give total integrated care does not stop there. For the religious community in Jerusalem, we are also connected to Halachic Authorities and Rabbis who help the patients with their spiritual and halakhic concerns. Our mandate is not just for Jews. We give the same fully integrated care service for everyone, no matter what their creed. Believers in other religions will be matched with clergy from their faiths, should they desire.
