Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer

Integrative Medicine

Integrative medicine, also known as holistic or complementary medicine, focuses on the whole person―mind, body and spirit. It incorporates the therapies of alternative and conventional medicine. It also helps patients deal with the side effects of treatment and enhance their sense of well-being. Patients and practitioners alike consider these therapies to be a vital component of medical care.

Join Marcia Jones, Integrative Medicine Supervisor, as she discusses the many benefits of integrative medicine, and how the Avera Cancer Institute is committed to caring for the whole person―mind, body and spirit.
