|Areas of research|
At the Allen Park Health Center, we are in process of embracing regenerative medicine as an investment to the future of integral health care. The quest for finding genuine patient's health-centric solutions to meet their ever changing needs that remain our mission and we look for a system of values, as we always treat the underlying causes of symptoms and find innovative and affordable health care solutions.
Our Center has several evolving focus areas, including integral medicine, musculoskeletal regeneration & neurological regeneration. Each encompassing the discovery, development and delivery of next-generation patient care. In our Health center’s Programs, all clinicians take an interdisciplinary integral approach to medicine & neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions that are very difficult at times. The search for solutions is multifaceted, ranging from gaining basic science innovative understanding to clinical applications. In our center, we have beautiful examples of integral team-based innovations in the field of basic science , primary care and neuro-musculo-skeletal rehabilitation.
As director of the Health Center’s Integral Medicine & Rehab, I see firsthand the remarkable collaboration between intertispecialty physicians and across the rehab disciplines. In this new era of medicine, we are working together to use advanced second tier integral, regenerative technologies and therapies to essentially teach the human body to heal from within. We remain unrelenting in our mission to target the root cause of illness and offer the prospect of holistic healing and the mind — all with the objective of advancing the science and highest quality of health care and healing across the lifespans of our patients.
An integral medicine perspective is the one that calls for a whole system shift from a disease-centered to a healing-centered model for health care.It is a new paradigm not just for putting two or more disciplines together but a fundamental philosophical attitude firmly based on a vision and innovative guiding principles. It is an equilibrating project of integral and biomedical models of current medicine to eliminate a misleading impression that there are differences in the technology and instruments used ( tools in the tool-box). The essential differences evolved over the last several centuries in the underlying paradigms, basic philosophical assumptions, attitudes, and values. The tool-box used may be the same but the manner of its use and the therapeutic overall health outcomes may be different for the two approaches. Here, I will present the concepts and practice of integral & bio-medicine still in the modern and post-modern context. I will then present Tauhidic-Integral concepts on which futuristic integral medicine can be based: the integral concepts of life, health, illness, treatment and prevention of disease. A parallel analogy is made of the two models and recommendations are made about introducing integral philosophy & concepts in the global futuristic medical practice context.
