Imaginative Medicine

What is Imaginative Medicine?

Imaginative can have several meanings:

Imaginative Medicine is simply thinking outside the box of conventional medicine by using integrative, functional and regenerative medicine and infusing these with traditional healing practices. For example it can include using dietary supplements, peptides, cell therapies, combining some or all of these with guided imagery, meditation, ceremony, music, movement, and various other techniques to encourage healing of our minds and bodies and bring creativity into our lives.

What is Integrative Medicine? 

Integrative Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies. (Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine)

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.  It shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a  patient-centered approach.  Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. Functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual. (adapted from definition by Dr. Mark Hyman)

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage, or congenital defects. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by stimulating previously irreparable organs to heal themselves. (National Institute of Health Fact Sheet). Regenerative Medicine at MIMI includes biologic allograft therapies and other modalities.
