Are Integrative Treatment Plans The Future of Wellness At Work?

The future of work-life balance is slowly moving towards holistic, integrative plans that take into account mental and physical health. Let's take a look at why integrative medicine is the next big thing in corporate healthcare.

A worker’s physical and mental health should be a top priority of any organisation. If Covid has taught us anything, it's the fact that we can no longer treat mental and physical symptoms in isolation. This is why more and more organisations are rapidly leaving towards personalised integrative treatment plans for their employees. Integrative medicine takes an evidence-based approach to treat a person as a whole—mind, body, and soul. Integrative medicine uses a variety of therapies to treat your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs.

According to a 2013 study titled ‘The Future of Integrative Medicine’ by the American Journal of Medicine, perspectives offered by integrative medicine will eventually transform mainstream medicine by improving patient outcomes, reducing company costs, improving physical and mental health safety, and increasing patient satisfaction. Combinations of methods such as psychological and physical (e.g., yoga, tai chi, acupuncture, dance or art therapies) or psychological and nutritional (e.g., mindful eating) are now becoming more common in modern healthcare.

Understanding Integrative Medicine

According to a 2001 study published in the BMJ, integrative treatment has a larger meaning and mission. Integrative treatment includes patients and doctors working together to maintain health by focusing on lifestyle issues such as nutrition, exercise, rest and sleep quality, and the nature of relationships.

  • Integrative treatment is patients and doctors working together to preserve health by focusing on lifestyle elements such as nutrition, exercise, relaxation and sleep quality, and the nature of relationships.
  • Integrated treatment, as opposed to traditional medicine, focuses on the physical, emotional, and psychological components of healing a patient.
  • Focuses on healing relationships and encourages patients about therapy choices.
  • Gaining back the body’s natural state of balance can restore this equilibrium and advance health and wellness.
  • Evaluating the mind, body, and spirit—integrative medicine focuses on how numerous symptoms may be linked and look for root causes rather than just treating specific symptoms.
  • Integrative evaluations are highly personalised. All aspects are considered when establishing whether or not an individual remains healthy.
