Donate to Alternative Medicine Research, Patient Care and Education
Alternative medicine, or integrative medicine, is an approach to health care that combines science-based, “traditional” medicine with other, complementary approaches, such as acupuncture, herbalism, healing touch, massage, chiropractic care, behavioral health techniques and more. With a focus on treating the whole person (not simply the symptoms of illness), alternative medicine addresses each individual’s personal needs, values and experiences, and empowers the individual to fully participate in his or her own health, wellness and healthcare decisions and choices. By offering an array of treatment modalities, and by validating every person’s unique beliefs and needs, alternative medicine provides patients with numerous paths toward healing.
