Medicine outside of mainstream, allopathic practice is often considered complementary, integrative, or alternative medicine. Some perceive the medical system as alternative and traditional or Eastern and Western, respectively. This way of thinking is extremely rigid since the two sides are intricately woven.
Optimal health is achieved by being open-minded and acknowledging the necessity of a multi-disciplined approach to health. Convergence Medicine, a term coined by Dr. Ahvie Herskowitz, combines all forms of healthcare, with wisdom dating back thousands of years. Most practitioners of Convergence Medicine focus on determining the cause of imbalance in the body instead of solely addressing the symptoms presented by that imbalance. Balance is then achieved using a myriad of modalities including, but not limited to, botanical/herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, nutraceuticals, acupuncture, homeopathy, physical medicine, intravenous (IV) therapy, nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and pharmaceuticals.
