Alternative Medicine Available in Carmel, IN

We at Holistic Integration (formerly The Prather Practice) restore health by correcting the physical and physiological imbalances in the body, thus achieving a balanced state of health that is not possible through the use of pharmaceuticals alone. These methods of balancing the body are often called alternative medicine, although many of these practices have been used for hundreds if not thousands of years and have a well-researched and proven efficiency.

At Holistic Integration, we work to achieve a balance between alternative medicine practices and the best of mainstream medicine to provide the maximum health of the individual. If you are dissatisfied with the results of mainstream medicine or are seeking a more natural, holistic approach, Holistic Integration can be the answer to your healthcare needs.

Holistic Integration uses the most effective yet least invasive treatments and techniques to help you regain your health and create habits that will serve you well over time.

Structure Function Care

The FDA recognizes two models of medical care in the United States — Disease Care and Structure Function Care. Disease Care is what most see as “traditional” medical practice — it involves addressing health issues and illnesses as they come up, treating diseases and symptoms with prescription medications, quick fixes, and sometimes even surgery.

Structure Function Care is proactive healthcare — it focuses on approaching the body as a whole to help bring the entire system back to homeostasis, or a point of balance and equilibrium, effectively preventing health issues before they come up.

Our practice uses the Structure Function model of care, and we want to see Structure Function Care elevated to operate as your primary care model. This might be a big change for you, but we’re here to help answer your questions!

Why is Structure Function care better?

At Holistic Integration, we focus on musculoskeletal health (the structures of your body: your muscles, joints, and bones) as well as physiological health (the functions of your body: everything from eating, sleeping, and breathing to the levels of your bloodwork).

By combining and treating both, we are able to bring your body back to homeostasis, meaning you feel your best and your body performs as well as it possibly can.
