JaVar Myatt-Jones is a family medicine physician based in Tuscumbia, Alabama. He works every day with patients and families from all over his community and assists them in preventative health and treatments for all of their medical conditions. Although Myatt-Jones has extensive medical training and experience, he is always trying to challenge himself to learn and practice new advances in medicine whenever possible. He believes that his responsibility is to help his patients find the best possible treatment for all of their ailments. He has recently taken an interest in integrative medicine.
Integrative medicine is a different way of thinking about patient health. Instead of focusing on one area of the body or one system at a time, integrative medicine considers the entire body, and also the patient’s mind and spirit, such as it is, in its treatment. JaVar Myatt-Jones doesn’t come from this tradition. He worked in many large hospitals and clinics in his time that practice traditional Western medicine, but he sees the potential benefits. Most practitioners of integrative medicine usually marry traditional Western treatments with Eastern treatments such as massage, acupuncture, and other alternative methods in an attempt to treat the entire person, not just their sickness.
JaVar Myatt-Jones will continue to add new thought and traditions to his physician’s toolbox to help his patients any way he can. Myatt-Jones is always reading up on new approaches to patient care and overall health so that he can serve his patients better and in a way that is more comfortable for them.
