Don t hesitate to ask about a practitioner s training and experience.
Don t hesitate to ask about a practitioner s training and experience.
Those worth their salt will have nothing to hide and should be happy to refer you to the professional organizations that trained, licensed, or certified them if you have additional questions about their qualifications.
Experts recommend that prospective patients look for practitioners who fundamentally believe in integrative medicine s mind-body-spirit-community philosophy.
A useful litmus test for screening CAM practitioners is to ask about their willingness to collaborate with conventional healthcare professionals.
Patients should avoid practitioners who automatically advocate all CAM therapies or discount all conventional medicine practices.
Likewise, use caution with conventional medicine practitioners who instantly write off integrative medicine or automatically advocate all mainstream medicine therapies.Fassilia

An immersion program may involve several days of on-site living, during which patients participate in a number of medical and therapeutic sessions, are surrounded by a team of integrative medicine experts, and work with a health coach during and after the program.
How do I choose an integrative medicine practitioner.
If you re considering supplementing your conventional medical care with a complementary or alternative therapy, or if you re already practicing a nonconventional therapy, you should speak with your doctor.
First, he or she may be able to recommend a qualified practitioner.
Second, if your doctor is kept informed of your CAM therapies, he or she can provide medical oversight and consider those therapies when moving forward with your overall healthcare strategy.
Because integrative medicine practitioners include physicians of every specialty as well as doctors of osteopathic medicine, mental health professionals, mind-body specialists, and practitioners such as massage therapists and acupuncturists, their educational and accreditation requirements vary widely, as does the regulation of their fields.Fassilia

While people turn to integrative medicine for many reasons, studies show that the majority do so because they consider it to be more aligned with their values, beliefs, and philosophies about health and life than a strictly conventional medical approach is.
Some prefer the customized, personal care that comes with integrative medicine s whole-person perspective.
Others believe it is only logical to incorporate health strategies into their lives from the widest array of proven approaches possible.
They think an integrative approach will allow them to achieve or maintain the best health possible.
Studies conducted at Duke Integrative Medicine show that patients who participate in integrative medicine programs realize more profound health benefits than those who don t.
Such programs can be one-on-one learning with a single health coach, or they can be an immersion into a healthful lifestyle.Fassilia

While Westerners typically think of hatha yoga, which stresses physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation, there are actually many types of yoga, most of which can be practiced by people of all levels of health and fitness.
Overall, the practice seeks to balance and integrate mind, body, and spirit; to enhance energy flow; and to stimulate the body s natural healing processes by teaching people how to release tension, relax, strengthen weak muscles, and stretch tight ones.
A number of other CAM therapies have proved to be effective complements to conventional medical treatments, including massage and reflexology; biofeedback and relaxation training; movement therapy; and dietary supplements such as vitamins, minerals, and herbal preparations.
More information about CAM therapies is available at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
