All Aspects Of Your Lifestyle

Implementing Conventional & Alternative Therapies

Integrative Medicine & Direct Primary Care

Integrative medicine is a healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind & spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative. At Osteopathic Healing Arts LLC in Libertyville, IL, we offer both conventional and alternative integrative medicine. Through our Direct Primary Care (DPC) model, you receive comprehensive primary health care from Dr. Joseph Starkman & pay for this care through a monthly membership fee. This fee covers the primary integrative medicine services you see below & may also cover others not currently listed. We do not participate in any insurance or plans, thus being able to avoid the ever-increasing demands & costs associated with accepting insurance. This saves you money & also gives you a greater level of service, as Dr. Starkman has more time to spend listening to and treating you. We recommend appointments, but we also try to accommodate all persons needing to be seen the same day. We ask that you call early in the day to ensure we are able to see you that day. We can be reached by calling 847-362-1367.

The Principles of Integrative Medicine

– A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
– Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
– Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind & spirit
– A philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically
– Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open
– Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible
– Use of the broader concepts of promotion of health and the prevention of illness as well as treatment
– Practitioners are to be models of health and healing, committed to self-exploration and self-development
