Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine brings holistic healing approaches, such as acupuncture, massage,meditation, and yoga, into your health care plan.

 

Affinity Health System’s Mary Kimball Anhaltzer Center for Integrative Medicine in Oshkosh promotes the harmony of healing-oriented medicine and conventional health care. We address the combination of your physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual sides to find the most effective, least invasive paths to healing.

Patient Consultation

 

We welcome all patients interested in learning more about holistic approaches to healing. Patients with chronic medical problems who do not respond well to conventional medicine often benefit from this approach.  Dr. Norden and Kimbrough combine general internal medicine with complementary therapies such as herbals and supplements, meditation, massage and yoga to provide individual treatment plans for each patient. We most often see:

  • people who want recommendations for disease prevention, wellness or life enhancement
  • people who have chronic conditions such as pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease, cancer or rheumatic diseases.

Comprehensive Assessment

 

Affinity’s Integrative Medicine experts conduct a comprehensive assessment to determine how physical, emotional and spiritual factors influence your health and wellness. Your Integrative Medicine physician will also review your medical history during the initial visit, which usually lasts 60 to 90 minutes.  Your treatment plan may include general internal medicine recommendations, lifestyle changes, nutrition advice, herbal and supplement advice and other appropriate therapies.  The integrative medicine physicians are not primary care physicians, but will work in collaboration with your doctor to help optimize your health.

If you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact the Mary Kimball Anhaltzer Center for Integrative Medicine at (920) 223-7366. No referral is necessary.
