Integrative Health and Medicine
in the Unites States
Integrative Health today is a dynamic process that is changing the way medicine is practiced in America. The coordinated combination of therapies and treatments from conventional and non-conventional traditions — all of which have been shown to be safe and effective — is creating a new reality for understanding ailments in the broadest, whole-person context, including the root causes of illness. This view encourages practitioners to understand health beyond injury and illnesses to paths of health creation that promote and support an individual’s optimal wellbeing. The links to the articles below describe examples of integrative care for several significant health issues.
