What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine is the practice that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between clients and practitioners, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence and guided by tradition, makes use of the best therapeutic techniques and healing disciplines to optimize health and healing.
Integrative Medicine is not a new concept but a reaffirmation of Dr. John King's MD(1813-1893)philosophy.
In this regards it should not be redefined, especially by groups or individuals who do not understand the circumstances under which it was established.
“To be a physician in the true sense, the mind must be unrestrained and not warped by prejudice; there must be a freedom of choosing and selecting such medical views and such remedial agents, without regard to theory or devotedness to party, as have been fully demonstrated by facts and experience to be the most in accordance with nature, and the most effectual in restoring health.”
John King MD (1813-1893)
Father of Eclectic Medicine...Now Integrative Medicine.
