Integrative Medicine, as a field, encompasses a wide array of medical practice, including naturopathic, holistic, homeopathic, restorative, complementary, Chinese medicine, alternative, herbal, metabolic, nutritional, energy, anti-aging and wellness medicine.
Seeking always to improve the effectiveness of medical practice through the integration of medical therapies, Integrative Medicine is constantly evolving and embracing cutting edge scientific treatment and technology that is critical to the improvement of patient care.
Integrative Medicine focuses on the person as a whole and uses a comprehensive approach to achieve optimal health and wellness - and this is the approach utilized by Dr. Gail Ravello and her team at Natural Medical Solutions Wellness Center in Roswell, GA.
With a whole-person approach, Integrative Medicine takes into consideration the interplay of lifestyle factors, genes and environment in treating and preventing illness or disease. It “integrates” many different types of therapies and treatments to heal mind, body and spirit – utilizing both conventional and alternative approaches to disease.

The umbrella of Integrative Medicine includes healthcare practitioners from all specialties, ranging from physicians, pharmacists, scientists, naturopathic doctors, and chiropractors to nurse practitioners, nurses and physician assistants.
