INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE IN AMERICA
VOICES OF INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE:
Conversations and Encounters
Education is the foundation on which transformation is built.
Authored by Bonnie Horrigan, Donald Abrams, MD, Sheldon Lewis and Connie Pechura, PhD, Integrative Medicine in America: How Integrative Medicine Is Being Practiced in Clinical Centers Across the United States provides current data on the patient populations and health conditions most commonly treated with integrative strategies. The book (1) describes the patient populations and diseases most commonly treated with integrative medicine, (2) defines the core practices and models of integrative care, (3) determines how integrative care is paid for, and (4) identifies the biggest factors driving successful implementation.
This unique collection brings together inspiring interviews and encounters with leading healers and therapists working in integrative medicine.
Through intimate conversations with top scientists and physicians about their own personal experiences with alternative modalities, both as human beings and as healers, readers are exposed to the many different disciplines that comprise this field. Additionally, through viewing the collection of conversations as a whole, the underlying principles that make alternative and complementary medicine so workable are revealed.
