Safe natural therapy to heal illness and improve well-being
Internal medicine is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of nonsurgical conditions in adults. This medical specialty focuses on the whole body of the patient. Internists also promote preventive medicine, such as healthful eating, weight reduction, smoking cessation, and regular exercise. Some common sub-specialties in internal medicine include cardiology (heart), endocrinology (glands), rheumatology (joints), infectious diseases, hematology (blood), oncology (cancer), pulmonology (lungs). A general internist may refer a patient to a specialist if he or she feels that a treatment requires special care.
