Integrative medicine, a primary focus at Apex MD, is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person—treating the mind, body and spirit synergistically, not as separate and independent entities. Integrative medicine is a philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative medicine uncritically—there is always a time and place for both. It recognizes that good medicine should be based in good science, inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.

Integrative medicine utilizes natural, effective and less-invasive interventions when appropriate, such as Ayurveda medicine, medical massage and acupuncture. Its broader concepts focus on the promotion of health, prevention of illness and treatment of disease. Apex MD Integrative Health encourages optimal aging, healthy nutrition, fitness and holistic wellness.

Through optimization of health and synergy of body, mind and spirit, one can eliminate the need for dependence upon prescription medications and avoid the curse of “bad genes”. Unhealthy and mindless living accelerates the predisposition to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hormonal imbalance, endocrine disorders and a myriad of other medical conditions.

The mission of Apex MD Integrative Health is to promote wellness and fitness that will ultimately manifest as good health, happiness and optimal aging. Because we truly value you and your health, we want to spend as much time with you as we can, getting to know you and discussing how we can start you on your journey to a healthier and happier version of yourself. Preventative medicine is crucial in keeping the body disease-free. According to Buddha, “Without health, life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering—an image of death.”

Age is simply a number. It is never too early or too late to take control of your health and start taking care of yourself. No matter where you may be in life, you always have the opportunity to not only feel better, but to feel your best. So why wait? You don’t have to be better than everybody else…you just have to be better than you have ever been. When you feel like quitting, think about why you started and make this your new mantra… Be Healthy. Be Happy. Be Awesome!

Come discover Apex MD’s multitude of healthcare options, including insurance-covered weight loss and medical massage, hormone replacement therapy, IV nutrition, holistic skincare, Ayurveda and more… all under the supervision of a physician-led team of dedicated healthcare professionals. Our philosophy and approach to optimal living resonates in how we practice integrative medicine—“holistically”. Spreading the wealth means spreading the health.
