The Sage Companion Project team wanted to know why we were hearing from self-guided learning tours participants that they wanted to be more personally responsible for their healthcare and desired a more personal experience with healthcare professionals.
Our own SLIM COACH, Greg Hottinger whose articles appear in The Sage Companion Quarterly eMagazine, recommended we turn to DUKE UNIVERSITY, a leader in the field of Integrative Medicine and his alma mater.
Quoting Duke University: " As the American healthcare system grows progressively stressed and truly patient-centered care becomes increasingly difficult to find, more people than ever before are looking for alternatives to the conventional healthcare model.
Integrative medicine, which focuses on caring for the whole human being—body, mind, spirit, and community, not just flesh, bones, and organs—is steadily becoming a desirable and logical option for many people."
The New Model
"The integrative medicine model recognizes the critical role the
practitioner-patient relationship plays in a patient's overall
healthcare experience, and it seeks to care for the whole person by
taking into account the many interrelated physical and nonphysical
factors that affect health, wellness, and disease, including the
psychosocial and spiritual dimensions of people's lives."
Medical doctors in Asheville, North Carolina are leading the way with a new vision of sustainable excellence. Over a decade ago, Lisa Lichtig, MD and Patrick Hanaway, MD now married for over twenty years, had a vision to create a health care center that addressed the root of illness rather than just treating symptoms. They recognized people’s longing to feel deeply cared for and heard by their physicians. "We do not compromise the level of care and time that we spend with our patients. Instead, as we grow, we are grateful that we can offer this ‘good medicine’ to a broader population."
Lisa Lichtig, M.D.
Family to Family Integrative Medicine Lisa Lichtig, M.D " seeks to provide a safe forum for the story of healing to be told; to support you as the journey towards balance unfolds; and to join you in the exploration of the heart of healing."
Not far from Family to Family's offices in a beautiful bungalow in an historic section of Asheville, you will also find a team of caring doctors at Integrative Family Medicine. " We believe that healthcare can be done differently, "they tell us. " We opened our clinic to make quality, primary care affordable for you.
By treating the ‘whole you’ and providing comprehensive care, we address the roots of your concerns. We integrate Western Medicine and natural methods to fit your needs.
" We give time to understand you, so that together we can find an effective, individualized plan for your optimal health. We work outside of the insurance model and have two ways to provide affordable, quality care for you and your family."
