What is integrative medicine? Integrative medicine is way to heal the body by treating the mind, body, and spirit all at the same time. It combines modern medicine with reputable approaches from around the globe. Integrative medicine is designed not only to heal diseases, but the person as a whole. Many would argue that integrative medicine is not the same as CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) and it’s not the combination of conventional medicine with CAM. This type of medicine emphasizes healing and wellness of the whole person, including bio, psycho, socio, and spiritual dimensions, as the main goal and has followed both conventional and CAM approaches to help create a supportive and effective physician-patient relationship.
Why do people turn to integrative medicine? Many people have become dissatisfied with the ways traditional hospitals and doctors take care of patients. With integrative medicine, it seems to give more assurance and attention as to how a person is healed. The approach emphasizes treating the whole person, promoting good health and well-being, and valuing prevention.
In the recent decade, integrative medicine has become increasingly popular. Doctors and philosophers are coming together because integrative medicine is something that these professionals truly believe can heal a person.
