WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE?
The roles of integrative medicine and complementary medicine are increasing in mainstream medical clinics and health maintenance organizations. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) at the National Institutes of Health, "Integrative healthcare often brings conventional and complementary approaches together in a coordinated way. It emphasizes a holistic, patient-focused approach to healthcare and wellness." The mission of the NCCIH is to define, through rigorous scientific investigation, the usefulness and safety of complementary and integrative health interventions and their roles in improving health and healthcare.
