There’s something to be said for being treated by best-of-the-best medical experts in state-of-the-art facilities. The providers with Edward-Elmhurst Health really are second to none.
But healing often requires care that goes beyond medicine. And at Edward-Elmhurst Health, we have embraced integrative medicine as an adjunct to traditional Western medicine.
We recognize, especially for people who have pain, that there are therapies that help people manage their symptoms. Whether it’s acupuncture, reiki or guided imagery — these are very important tools.
Stress is a significant contributor to physical illness and pain, so stress management is something we embrace as part of being healthy.
Kudos to the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation, which raised the funds needed to start our Integrative Medicine program. The foundation also provided the funds to cover two free integrative medicine therapies to patients who are treated at the Nancy W. Knowles Cancer Center.
The Edward-Elmhurst Health Integrative Medicine Clinic offers a variety of therapies, including:
For me, meditation is essential. I meditate every day. I have chronic neck pain and had surgery 20 years ago. I’ve also used acupuncture to help me manage the neck pain without having to resort to medication.
Whether you’re in the midst of treatment, recovering, or just super-busy and feeling stressed out, give some of these therapies a try. You’ll notice the difference it makes in your well-being.
Sometimes you need a little extra support to help you tolerate treatment and recover from illness — and feel better overall. Learn more about our Integrative Medicine Clinic.
