Welcome to The Tennant Institute
In order to comply with the rules of the Texas Medical Board, people coming to the Tennant Institute for Integrative Medicine may choose to receive “standard-of-care” medicine, Complementary (Natural/Pastoral) Medicine, or Integrative Medicine.
Despite the fact that many medical schools are now teaching complementary medicine in an effort to move toward Integrative Medicine, many medical boards still insist that physicians in their states only offer traditional “standard-of-care” medicine with prescription medicines and surgery.
The doctors at the Tennant Institute for Integrative Medicine may have two separate occupations. One is to provide traditional “standard-of-care” medicine using prescription medications such as hormones, blood pressure medications, etc. as allowed by their Texas MD licensure. The other is to provide complementary medicine as defined by the National Institutes of Health, National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) and taught in many medical schools but not allowed by the Texas Medical Board; therefore, we have two separate websites and follow separate rules with separate licensure.
