The Lotus Philosophy

The Lotus Center team is committed to practicing the following Principles of Integrative Medicine:

1.

Patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.

2.

All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.

3.

Appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods facilitates the body's innate healing response.

4.

Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be used whenever possible.

5.

Integrative medicine neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically.

6.

Good medicine is based in good science. It is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.

7.

Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.

8.

As practitioners of integrative medicine, we are committed to exemplify its principles and commit ourselves to self-exploration and self-development.
