Integrated Veterinary Medicine is a form of medical approach that sets its foundations on the integration of conventional, and non-conventional therapeutic protocols by conceiving the disease as an "imbalance of the homeostasis of the organism".
This approach therefore wheel about the centrality of the patient, considering the full range of physical, emotional, psycho-physical and environmental influences that affect the health of every living being. This holistic approach focusing on therapeutic intervention on personalized strategies that take into account the peculiarities and uniqueness of each patient in relation to the pathophysiological conditions common to each disease, is aimed at achieving an optimal state of health and consequently an improvement in quality of life.
Integrated medicine is based on the definition of health. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as "a state of physical, mental and social well-being, and not simply the absence of illness or illness." (I)
The purpose of the Veterinary Integrated Medicine is to restore and maintain the optimal health and well-being throughout the entire life span of pets through the comprehension of a single set of physio-pathologically common circumstances, but individually characterized and individually interpreted in order to reach the optimization of treatment.
Integrated Medicine is not the medicine of the symptom but that of the deep (noxa) cause. It is based on the knowledge of the most important medical approaches recognized by Science. It is therefore a concrete response to the immediate need of the patient with long-term improvement (or resolution) effects, in the consciousness of the complex correlation between biological, behavioral, psychosocial and environmental factors.
The principles that define the Integrated Veterinary Medicine are as follows:
• The Veterinarian and the patient are partners in the healing process, which cannot disregard the relationship and effective communication with the animal owner;
• All factors affecting health, well-being and illness are taken into account, including body, mind, spirit, and community (social factors);
• The use of all healing sciences in order to facilitate the innate body response (healing);
• The use of all effective remedies in the therapeutic relationship: more effective - less toxicity for the patient understood in its entirety
• Balance between classical and natural therapeutic support: therapeutic synergy and strengthening of pharmacological action;
• In addition to the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion, disease prevention and synergy of remedies are of primary importance;
• Treatment is designed with an individual and personalized perspective in order to better handle the unique conditions, peculiarities, needs and circumstances of each individual patient as a unique and inimitable individual.
