National Center for Integrative Medicine One Place, One Focus: Total You

Just in case you missed the grand opening of Joliet’s own National Center for Integrative Medicine (NCIM) in March, they launched their unique medical center providing many sought after services to our area. This innovative organization provides a variety of services which integrate the best features of conventional, alternative, and aesthetic medicine. “This center is the first of its kind in the country,” proudly states Dr. Rao Kilaru MD, President and CEO of NCIM. “Integrative medicine is the future because people demand more healthcare options than conventional medicine offers. We think that 21st century medicine is going to include all the pieces: the conventional, the alternative, and the aesthetic.” ThehealthcareprofessionalsattheNationalCenter for Integrative Medicine recognize the importance of the interaction between mind, body, and soul for an individual’s sense of wellness and advocate a holistic approach to address their clients’ health. Their three distinctive programs – Executive Health, Complementar y and Alternative Medicine, and Lasers and Aesthetics – offer clients a variety of ser vices to choose from in order to optimize their health and wellness. Executive Health at NCIM provides you the conventional medicine element of their integrative concept. Executive Health providers will perform comprehensive medical evaluations that incorporate state of the art conventional medical diagnostic testing with integrative treatment options. “The NCIM comprehensive physical will be a unique experience for our clients,” reports Dr. Satish Reddy, M.D., Medical Director of the National Center for Integrative Medicine. “Not

only will people receive a thorough conventional medical exam, they also get the added value and expertise of integrated assessments from our chiropractor,naturopath,andexercisephysiologist. Other programs in development such as weight loss, anti-aging, and lifestyle medicine will be incorporated to address our clients’ demand for these services.”

Complementar y and Alternative Medicine (CAM) at NCIM offers an array of complementary treatment modalities such as acupuncture, traction/decompression therapy, chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, massage therapy, dietary modification, nutrient supplementation, botanical medicine, homeopathy, intravenous nutrients, hydrotherapy, exercise medicine, yoga, meditation, and lifestyle counseling. “We focus on treating the cause of disease, preventing illness, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle,” states Dr. Carissa Baranoski D.C., Medical Director of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. “In order to be a successful integrative practice we offer our clients effective solutions that

either complement or provide an alternative to conventional medical treatments. Our goal is to get our patients back to doing what they love and living life pain free.” Lasers and Aesthetics at the National Center for Integrative Medicine provide a variety of safe and effective non-invasive laser and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Kilaru points to the rapid increase in the use of laser technology to provide nonsurgical alternatives. People want to look beautiful without the pain, cost, or down-time associated with traditional surgical cosmetic procedures. For example, our non-invasive i-Lipo laser procedure can help you achieve fat reduction and body contouring results comparable to surgical liposuction without any pain or down-time at a fraction of the cost.” NCIM’s Medical Lasers and Aesthetics program also offers non-invasive laser treatments for acne, wrinkles, hair removal, tattoo removal, spider leg veins, and a variety of other skin conditions. Aesthetic procedures such as Botox, dermal fillers, and chemical peels are also available to address the negative effects of the aging process on the face. The National Center for Integrative Medicine‘s philosophy of “One Place, One Focus: Total You” is truly reflected in their extensive list of holistic services and integrated approach to healthcare.
