What is Integrative Medicine?
The Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine defines Integrative Medicine as "healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies." Andrew Weil, the father of Integrative Medicine, describes Integrative Medicine as "the intelligent combination of conventional and alternative medicine...it is trying to restore the focus of medicine on health and healing, away from disease symptom management."
