Dr. Marquit is a pioneer in integrative medicine. But what does integrative medicine look like, and how can it benefit your family in 2024 and beyond? 

What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine combines conventional and alternative therapies, focusing on the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. It takes a proactive approach to health and wellness — acknowledging and understanding how a person’s lifestyle, environment, stressors, and daily activity play a role in their health.

Let’s unpack what integrative medicine looks like in 2024: 

Holistic Wellness for the Modern Age

In a fast-paced world where stress and chronic ailments have become commonplace, integrative medicine stands as a beacon of hope. It acknowledges that our health is interconnected with various aspects of our lives, from nutrition and exercise to mental well-being and spiritual fulfillment. By addressing the root causes of health issues and promoting proactive measures, integrative medicine empowers individuals to take charge of their overall wellness. 

For UPLIN members & patients, you can schedule a wellness visit with one of our experienced MDs. Our comprehensive wellness exams are a far cry from the quick 10 minute check-ins with a nurse practitioner. With UPLIN, you get MD-only care, and our wellness visits average an 90 minutes. That’s an hour and a half with a skilled MD who is taking a holistic, preventative approach to your healthcare. 

Mind-Body Harmony

One of the pillars of integrative medicine is recognizing the profound connection between the mind and body. Practices such as mindfulness meditation, pilates and yoga components that foster this mind-body harmony. These techniques not only alleviate stress but also contribute to improved mental clarity, emotional resilience, and a heightened sense of self-awareness. 

At UPLIN, we also offer opportunities for stress alleviation through our massage therapy, physical therapy and psychotherapy services. Our specialists will go to your door — on your schedule — and help transform your body and mind into a place of healing. 

Complementary Therapies for Comprehensive Care

Integrative medicine embraces a wide array of complementary therapies, from acupuncture and chiropractic care to herbal supplements and massage therapy. At UPLIN, we know that a wide range of treatment options can make all the difference in someone getting the comprehensive care they need. Our Care Navigators can set you up with our range of specialists that include Psychology, Podiatry, Cardiology, Dermatology, Integrative Medicine, Nutrition, Orthopedics, Rheumatology and more.

These therapies work synergistically with conventional medical treatments, offering a comprehensive approach to health and healing. UPLIN makes it easy to integrate these ancillary services into your wellness routine. With UPLIN, you and your family can optimize your body’s natural ability to heal and enhance your overall quality of life!
