One only heals when sense of self is recognized Dr J. Mallia Sydney Naturopath 1999
It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has. Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.)
So what is Integrative Medicine and Healthcare?
Simply the practice of Integrative Medicine is to provide the best possible healthcare and solutions utilising traditional wisdom and knowledge, modern science and the latest technology. The term Integrative Medicine was coined due to the re-emergence of the complementary or alternative medicine to describe a practice of combining both orthodox medical practices and complementary medicine for healthcare, I guess you could say it is applying the best of both worlds in order to give the best possible treatment for the patient at hand.
Even though the term Integrative Medicine seems relatively new, the practice of Integrative Medicine dates back to early healers such as the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, and other innovators such as BJ Palmer the father of Chiropractic where it was common practice to integrate treatments to give the best possible healthcare for their patients. I guess you could say this is a sign of a true healer, one who continues in search to better their practices in order to help their patients with the most appropriate non invasive, safest treatment possible.
An Integrative Medicine Practitioner (IMP) is therefore one who utilises the best of Orthodox and complementary medicine whether it be by cross referral, or by direct application. Usually this kind of Practitioner has been exposed to many modalities and understands the benefits, application and limitations of these practices.
