Hooray for Holistic Healthcare!

More proof that holistic is the way to go when it comes to feeling good and maintaining good health: Integrative medicine is effective for treating everyday problems, according to a national survey by the Bravewell Collaborative.

Some 75 percent of integrative health centers said they had successfully treated chronic pain.  And more than half reported positive results for treating gastrointestinal conditions, depression and anxiety, cancer and chronic stress. Food and nutrition, supplements, yoga, meditation, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, massage and pharmaceuticals were among the most cited approaches.

What’s more, the multidimensional team approach is cost-effective, personalized and empowering for patients. To learn more about the results, check out  Integrative Medicine in America: How Integrative Medicine Is Being Practiced in Clinical Centers Across the United States.
