Great health helps build the foundation for a happy life. It allows us the best opportunity to pursue our highest vision of ourselves. Being healthy means not only the absence of disease, but also the presence of vitality and wellness. Dr. Madamba believes that in order to promote good health, we should combine the cutting-edge innovations of modern medicine with the wisdom of alternative healing traditions, putting the emphasis on balanced body, mind, and spirit. As much as possible, he believes in using lifestyle changes and natural therapies alongside medicines to target the root cause of illness.
This approach to health and healing is the essence of integrative medicine. Together with functional medicine, anti-aging medicine, restorative medicine, and personalized lifestyle medicine these disciplines are part of the next evolution of healthcare. Integrative medicine physicians are trained to take a comprehensive, holistic, and individualized approach with each patient – addressing fundamental factors like nutrition, stress, sleep, relationships, physical activity, and toxic exposures – to face the growing burden of complex chronic diseases in today’s society.
By guiding patients towards a healthier way of living and utilizing a personalized prescription of nutritional supplements, medicines, and therapies both conventional and alternative, we can promote the body’s innate healing abilities to stabilize and potentially reverse illness, improve quality of life, and move towards more optimal health and well-being.
