Integrative Medicine: Healing the Whole Person

Move Down to Article

Healing involves more than undergoing a medical procedure or taking a pill.  Increasingly, healthcare systems such as Baptist Health South Florida are offering integrative therapies, including acupuncture, meditation, healthy foods, art therapy and pet therapy, to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of their patients. In this episode, host Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., explores the impacts integrative medicine can bring to patients’ well being with expert guests from across Baptist Health:

· Beatriz Currier, M.D, medical director of the Cancer Patient Support Center at Miami Cancer Institute.
· Thi Squire, community garden manager with the Grow to Heal Program at Homestead Hospital
· Wally Majors, dog therapy volunteer at Bethesda Hospital East.
