Integrative Medicine

What is Integrative Medicine (IM)?

It is not the same as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). It is about restoring health and wellness by looking at the person as a whole. This includes mind, body, spirit and lifestyle choices. It shifts the emphasis from disease management to healing, health and wellness. It looks at all methods of treatment and combines the best of traditional medicine with the best of CAM. I trained at the Duke IM coaching program where they stress evidenced based practice and research.
