At ALTERMEDIC, we integrate the time-tested principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with the latest advances in the Conventional Medicine to create effective health and wellness plans. We strongly believe that the best approach to health care is one that takes into account the whole person, including physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of health. This multi-dimensional approach cannot be fulfilled by conventional medicine alone, and often requires an integration of conventional and complementary practices. Regardless of the treatment, the goal for any doctor is to restore the health of the patient. The achievements of conventional Western Medicine over the last few decades have been remarkable. However, there are some cases where conventional medicine has no positive answers, whereas complementary medicine offers different and often successful treatments. TCM includes an element of healing and support that conventional medicine lacks. Integration of TCM into conventional medicine often works in favour of the patient’s health. We are caring and committed to helping you reach your health goals and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
