Abstract

Integrative medicine (IM) can be defined as healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit). It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative [1]. The field of integrative medicine is a diverse collection of more than 1000 practices and principles that are used as a form of healing. In the 1990s, the term “integrative medicine” (IM) replaced the terminology complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). IM is now used to describe these techniques that were not previously identified as acceptable treatments in western medical practice.
