What is the difference between integrative and traditional medicine solutions?
“Integrative practitioners heal by treating your whole body, including the environment your body lives in and the lifestyle you expose your body to,” according to St. George’s University School of Medicine graduate, Dr. Dana Cohen.
Dr. Cohen graduated SGU in 1995. As an internal and integrative medicine specialist practicing in New York City, she treats patients by offering alternative approaches to health and wellness that can complement traditional methods of treatment.
Dr. Cohen recently shared her expertise in wellness blog, mindbodygreen. In her article, “I’m a holistic MD: What I tell my patients to do to lower cervical cancer risk,” she discussed holistic strategies to lower the risk of cervical cancer.
Her three tips included ways to:
- Take care of your immune system with essential nutrients and supplements;
- Keep hydrated; and
- Reduce stress.
“Taking a holistic, proactive approach to your immune health will also enhance your overall well-being and quality of life—yet another reason to start implementing these tips today,” Dr. Cohen wrote.
