What is Integrative Therapy
Integrative medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasises the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative.


Integrative Therapy
Is defined for USA usage by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Therapies, it combines conventional medical treatments and alternative and complementary treatments for which there is some high-quality scientific evidence of their safety and effectiveness
An increasing desire for wellness, in response to today’s stressful lifestyle, has led to the rising demand for Complementary Therapy and Alternative therapies.

It is true that many people are becoming disenchanted with conventional medicine use of drugs and the approach to healing. On the other hand, Complementary therapies tend to be "holistic", where an individual's health is considered as a whole, and treatment is not just focused on the symptoms. Complementary therapy employs "natural" methods to aid the healing powers of the body to return to a state of health.

The principles of integrative medicineare:-
•A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
•Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body's innate healing response
•Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, spirit and community as well as body
•A philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically
•Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms
•Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible
•Use of the broader concepts of promotion of health and the prevention of illness as well as the treatment of disease
•Training of practitioners to be models of health and healing, committed to the process of self-exploration and self-development
