The mission of Integrative Healthcare Solutions is to bring together traditional medicine and integrative medicine to break the cycle of the opioid crisis so together we can prevent addiction and save lives.
By partnering with physicians, patients, healthcare organizations and the wellness community, we provide a unique service that brings needed leadership, education, on-going support and inspiration essential to make integrative options (or non-pharmacological treatment options or non-prescription medicine) the new standard of care in pain management.
Our healthcare system is broken. Physicians took an oath to do no harm, yet we’re not giving our physicians what they need to safely and effectively treat their patients. We’re not giving doctors time to think about a better way to treat their patients given the demands from insurance companies. Traditional medical doctors receive little to no training on nutrition and integrative therapies although these have been successfully used to treat illness and disease around the world for centuries. They rely on scientific studies that are funded by drug companies which are completed in controlled environments. Drug companies spend billions of dollars marketing and selling to physicians and patients on a daily basis. It’s no wonder prescription medicine has become our main and sometimes only treatment option for patients. None of these drugs cure disease, they only treat symptoms and sometimes have side effects causing unintentional harm. Also, in our traditional healthcare model, the Eastern and Western worlds of medicine are working in silos. It can no longer be one vs the other, we need to integrate for the sake of our communities' health and well-being and the socioeconomic impact to our country.
My name is Catherine DeOrsey and I am the founder of Integrative Healthcare Solutions.
I have a science background with a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy and am a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I’ve also worked on the inside of the drug industry for the past 20 years. I have many friends who are physicians and I thoroughly respect and admire the medical community. However, in the last 25 years of my life's journey, I've experienced my brother, David's, 20 year addiction and overdose to opioids and alcohol in 2008, my father dying in 8.5 months from Small Cell Lung Cancer on Valentine's Day 2005 (David's birthday) and my friend, Lisa (45 years old), died in 7 months from Triple Hit Lymphoma in 2017. Out of nowhere in 2016, I was diagnosed with my own health crisis severe Crohn's Disease. Through all these experiences, I witnessed firsthand how integrative medicine was never even a consideration for any of our conditions or symptoms. It became clear to me that we can no longer solely rely on scientific journals and prescription medicine to treat pain and disease. Through my own condition and discovery, I have found a better way! A better way to treat pain, a better way to treat disease, a better way to live our lives. Isn’t that what we are all looking for?
Bringing integrative solutions to the forefront of healthcare is my passion in life. It’s time to help our doctors, healthcare organizations and our community integrate Eastern and Western medical techniques for the sake of peoples' lives, overall well-being and the socioeconomic cost to our country. Integrative Healthcare Solutions is here to turn our current healthcare model on it’s head by taking money, power and fame out of the equation so we can focus on one thing: preventing addiction and saving lives using integrative medicine techniques.
In memory of my father, Arthur Gott, my brother, David Gott, and my friend, Lisa Horne, please join me as we transform our sickcare system into a healthcare system one office and patient at a time.
