Integrative Interactive Health (I2Health) is a Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine Family Practice that endeavours to encourage, empower and educate patients for optimal health. Central to our practice are the six pillars of Lifestyle Medicine: diet, exercise, stress management, proper sleep, addictions management and interpersonal relationships. We use these pillars in the treatment of chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, and many others, as well as counseling our patients on the proper use of medications. Our aim is to educate our patients so that they understand how their chronic illness works, and empower them to take charge of their health.
The unfortunate fact is that time spent with physicians is getting shorter and shorter, and finding a family doctor you can trust is increasingly difficult. Time constraints mean that your doctor is unable to educate you as much as they would like regarding what lifestyle changes can be made in order to live healthier. At Integrative Interactive Health, we use social media, webinars and community seminars as teaching opportunities to inform our patient community of ways to prevent chronic disease or manage these illnesses if they already have them.
