The words “integrative medicine” might be confused with “alternative medicine.” However, what Dr. Cheryl Canfield brings to her new business in Sebewaing, opened in May 2022, isn’t that. Integrative medicine instead focuses on providing complimentary remedies to regular medicine and getting the patient involved in keeping their own health.
Canfield is a graduate of Peck High School in Sanilac County, earning her undergraduate degree from Lake Superior State University and her doctorate from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. However, she was always interested in other branches of medicine, finding ways to be the least invasive as possible but still help the patient feel better. She wants to help people take care of themselves, she said, not be reliant on someone else.
