Benefits of Integrative Medicine
Integrative medicine combines traditional and complementary therapies. Our coordinated approach supports healing and addresses all aspects of health. We’ll work with you to tailor a plan to help:
- Minimize nausea and vomiting, such as while undergoing chemotherapy or after surgery.
- Relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.
- Lower blood pressure.
- Reduce pain, such as after surgery or pain caused by cancer treatment.
- Reduce the symptoms of lymphedema.
- Help you with insomnia or other sleep issues.
- Lower your blood pressure.
- Improve your diet and support your nutrition goals or weight loss efforts.
- Quit smoking.
- Improve physical fitness or mobility, including for people with arthritis or Parkinson’s disease.
- Decrease hot flashes.
- Decrease inflammation, which is linked to many diseases and health complaints, and improve your immune system.
Integrative medicine refers to the use of conventional and complementary therapies together in a coordinated and evidence-based way, to facilitate the healing process. In integrative medicine, we consider the patient as a whole person and develop a plan for healing that addresses all aspects of health.

Evidence-Based Care in a Spa-Like Setting
When you enter the Graf Center for Integrative Medicine, you’ll be struck by its spa-like feel (take a photo tour). Though it doesn’t feel like a hospital, we are fully part of Englewood Health. Our team members are all licensed or certified, and we are overseen by a medical doctor. So you can trust us for safe, evidence-based care.
Unlike alternative medicine (a non-mainstream approach used instead of conventional medicine), we may use non-mainstream therapies together with conventional medicine. If you seek Graf Center services while being treated for a health issue, we will work with your own doctor to help tailor a treatment plan. Above all, your safety always comes first.
