Integrative Medicine is defined as a healing oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It is informed by evidence and makes use of all appropriate therapies. All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body (as defined by AzCIM).
Dr. Raman has been training for the last two years as a fellow under the guidance of Dr. Andrew Weil with Arizona center for Integrative Medicine.
In the last two decades, the obesity prevalence in America has reached an epidemic proportion. Texas has current adult obesity rate at 33% and ranks 14th in the nation.
