Integrative Primary Care
Integrative primary care focuses on treating current illness as well as building and maintaining overall health and wellness.
With integrative primary care, both conventional and complementary methods of treatment are used to promote a healing response. Effective, all-natural treatments are utilized whenever possible.
Integrative primary care, seeing the patient through a more holistic perspective, neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically. The goal is to embrace overall health, wellness and prevention of illness.
Many underlying conditions, once identified, can be addressed by straightforward modifications of diet or lifestyle leading to relief of symptoms often without the need for daily medication.
Integrative Pediatric Care
Well Integrative Family Medicine offers integrative pediatric care to our young patients and their families. Integrative primary care for children looks at the complete picture of the individual child’s health; monitoring growth, treating illness, achieving wellness with a strong emphasis on preventive care through lifestyle and diet.
Dr. Weiler recommends nutritional counseling and toxicant avoidance as appropriate for children. She also generally supports vaccinations for children. She embraces a combination of conventional care with complementary therapies, resulting in a more holistic approach to caring for her young patients
As a board-certified family medicine practitioner, Dr. Weiler is well qualified to partner with children and their parents as they seek wellness.
Acupuncture/Oriental Medicine treatments identify a pattern of energetic imbalance within a patient and address that disharmony through a variety of therapies that may include acupuncture needling, cupping, acupressure, and exercises such as yoga, qigong, as well as Chinese herbal preparations.
At Well, acupuncture is offered as a healing treatment option for our patients by our acupuncturist, Janice Scott Staron, MTOM. She earned her Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine at Midwest College of Oriental Medicine, and a BS in Nutrition at the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, IL.
Prior to working with Well, Janice was an acupuncturist at the Center for Integrative Medicine, Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Janice’s areas of interest include women’s health, fertility, mental and emotional issues, and dermatology.
