Amy joined The Doctors Greenmeadows team in late K and is a n ewly qualified GP, having worked in central Manchester as a Locum for the past year. Amy is passionate about community projects and improving mental health for the local community. A GP since and at The Doctors Napier since , Dr Edwards uses a combination of natural health and standard medical diagnostics and treatment. He specialises in management of long term health issues whether in children or adults.
Focusing on prevention and aiming for long term good health. Appointments with Dr Edwards are necessary and there can be a wait for an initial appointment. Also, integrative medicine includes things like exercise, nutrition and stress reduction in its definition. And through Dr. So the evidence is there to support to use of integrative therapies, and mind-body therapies in particular, for patients with cardiovascular disease.
In one sense, integrative medicine can help improve existing cardiovascular disease, and in other cases, prevent its development. Essentially, integrative medicine emphasizes a healthy lifestyle — eating a diet rich in whole foods and plants, getting adequate cardiovascular exercise, and managing stress. We know these practices have a positive impact on blood pressure, cholesterol, and obesity — three of the most significant risk factors for developing heart disease.
So by adopting a more integrative approach early on, patients may be able to prevent cardiovascular disease downstream. And patients who have cardiovascular disease may benefit in particular from the Ornish Model, which has been shown to reverse heart disease. We were trying to answer this question: What is the role of mind-body therapies in the conventional setting? We published our findings in the Archives of Internal Medicine in We found that 41 million Americans used mind-body therapies, and 6.
When we dug a little deeper, we found that people who were referred for a mind-body therapy by a physician had more medical conditions and used the health care system, suggesting that physicians are recommending these therapies as a last resort to their sickest patients, when other conventional options have been used up. And this made us wonder: What if we were offered these therapies earlier; would we see a bigger impact on medical outcomes?
Nerurkar: I would say mind-body therapies like yoga, meditation, tai chi, and stress reduction have the most clinical applicability in cardiology, along with nutrition and exercise therapy. The evidence is there. And it's mounting for stress and heart disease in particular, and that goes for both acute and chronic stress. A study in Circulation by Dr.
And chronic stress has been shown in several studies to be a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, even after controlling for traditional risk factors. So there is evidence to link stress to heart disease. Unfortunately, physicians rarely counsel patients about stress, only 3 percent of the time, to be specific.
General Practice - 1st Edition
Those findings are from a paper we published recently in the Archives of Internal Medicine. Integrative therapies, especially mind-body therapies, are pretty effective stress busters. And we have enough research that supports the use of these therapies for stress management purposes. Nerurkar: Our center is the first in the U. We have primary care physicians seeing patients, and in the next room there is a massage therapist seeing a patient, working next to an acupuncturist, and an integrative nutritionist, etc.
We are creating a direct path. Another neat thing about our center is the coordination of care. Our center also offers integrative physician visits for integrative sleep, mind-body medicine and stress management. And we will soon be offering classes for yoga, tai chi, meditation, and exercise.
Right now, our integrative physician visits are covered by insurance, but the rest of our services are out-of-pocket. Nerurkar: I have lots of patient stories of how integrative medicine has helped. One pretty memorable story is a patient I had with hypertension on a three-drug regimen. She wanted to learn how to meditate.
