“The more physicians and patients explore the many ways integrative medicine can be used to promote health and healing, the more it has become an integral component of American health care. “Both physicians and patients just need to have an open mind,” said Dr. Nicole Cotter, a board-certified rheumatologist and integrative medicine physician at UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center. “Every patient can benefit from integrative medicine, and every physician can benefit from introducing elements of it into treating patients. In fact, primary care physicians are probably doing it more than their patients realize.

It combines traditional or conventional medical practices with complementary medicine modalities, so patients receive the best of both approaches.”
