The Amsterdam Kliniek, founded by Doctor Lydia Boeken, uses an integrative medicine approach to complement the advice and treatments you may have already received from your GP or specialist. She aims at promoting health and fighting disease in a natural way without incurring damaging side effects.
Initially, she will evaluate your state of health on the basis of general/conventional medicine. Amongst other things this entails filling out an anamnesis/health questionnaire, a physical examination and possibly blood or other conventional testing.

This is the main advantage of using an integrative medicine treatment approach: utilizing the best of what general and complementary medicine have to offer.
