Integrative Q & A

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine emphasizes the health of the whole person, including all aspects of their lifestyle. The approach creates a therapeutic relationship between the practitioner and the patient. Dr. Bruton focuses on preserving your wellness, not just on addressing acute symptoms.

Dr. Bruton offers her calm, friendly demeanor when educating women about their intimate health care options. She spends time with you to learn your lifestyle habits, health goals, and concerns to create a whole-wellness plan that supports your best medical interests.

Integrative medicine is perfect for women seeking natural ways to maintain wellness, alleviate discomfort, and address reproductive health conditions.

What are the defining principles of integrative medicine?

Dr. Bruton abides by the understood principles of integrative medicine that guide her methods of diagnosis and treatment:

  • She and you, the patient, are partners in the healing process
  • All factors that affect health and wellness are considered when offering treatment, including symptoms, mental health, stress, work, and social or family obligations
  • All healing sciences may be employed to facilitate wellness

Dr. Bruton is committed to using natural and minimally invasive approaches to your gynecological health whenever possible. She also seeks to promote your health for the long term and prevent major health problems from occurring. Dr. Bruton educates you and supports you in implementing preventive health practices and lifestyle habits.

What types of treatments are considered integrative?

Dr. Bruton is educated and board-certified in conventional Western methods of treatment for gynecological conditions and health preservation. But, she’s also knowledgeable about integrative approaches that can augment Western treatments or therapies. For example, she might recommend natural ways to alleviate menstrual pain as well as medical interventions.

All treatments support the natural, healthy functioning of your reproductive system. She helps you manage nutrition, exercise, stress, and other lifestyle factors that can influence your health. At each consultation, she spends a lot of time learning about you, including habits that may affect your health and your health goals. She acknowledges you as a person and not just a collection of organs or symptoms.
