Integrative Medicine

As defined by the National Institute of Health, Integrative Medicine combines mainstream medical therapies and Complementary and Alternative Medicine therapies for which there is some high quality scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness. In summary Integrative Medicine combines the most well research conventional medicine with the most well-research, evidence based complementary therapies to achieve the appropriate care for each person.

According to Dr. Weil, the world's leading proponent of Integrative medicine, it is a healing oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind and spirit) including all aspects of lifestyle, using all appropriate therapies both conventional and alternative.

According to Mikhail Kogan, editor of the "Integrative Geriatric Medicine" book, Integrative Geriatrics is a new field of medicine that advocates for a whole-person, patient centered, primarily non-pharmacological approach to health care of the elderly. Most current geriatric practices overprescribe medications and procedures and underutilize non-pharmacological, low-cost, high-touch methods. The practice of integrative geriatrics is rooted in lifestyle interventions, diet, nutrition, movement therapies, manual therapies, mind-body and spirituality approaches.

People often confuse Holistic with Integrative medicine whereas Holistic or Alternative medicine is different from Integrative medicine because it is used instead of conventional western practices and can even have an active rejection of medical treatments
