Nurse Practitioner

Integration Health is a holistic Nurse Practitioner (NP) clinic. https://integrationhealth.ca/
Whole Person Health is the model of care and integration of mind, body spirit is greatly emphasized.

Care is guided by evidenced based research and conducted by an upstream, health promotional approach. The services are wide-ranging and will include conventional medical approaches to care as well as employing supplementary modalities and methodologies to bring about personal physical and mental wellness. The NP will focus on helping facilitate self-empowerment on which personal health can be optimally modified and enhanced. Change is emphasized first within the persons own level of control and will be supported by the NP as well as other holistic and medical health practitioner’s including the patients family physician.

The approach to care will be team based where the individual plays the lead role and directs care to the Self as needed and required. A significant percentage of health-care costs are spent treating chronic diseases, often at a late stage. We all have the ability to make a powerful impact in the prevention and treatment of acute and chronic diseases by changing and modifying our behavior.

When ready, your Nurse Practitioner will actively support you in moving into healthier life patterns.

The initial patient visit will begin with determining the primary health care direction based on results of a full comprehensive history and physical, lab results as well as medical investigations as needed. Each patient visit thereafter will center on actively culminating self-awareness and self-reliance to achieve personalized health care goals. The Nurse Practitioner will be attentive to enhancing individual patient capacity, hope, mindfulness, optimism, motivation as well as assisting in building intrinsic desire to expand on personal health goals. After all, everybody says, ‘relax, change your diet, be active, don’t stress, stop smoking, stop eating junk, don’t worry, take your medication etc., etc. But, rarely does just our prompting to make changes make it so.

Integration Health will foster patient support and management through personalized health care plans.
