Integrative Health & the Evidence
Integrative medicine is evidence-based, and an abundance of information exists demonstrating the power and effectiveness of integrative approaches to health. Consider just a small sample of the research supporting integrative practices and therapies that treat the whole person:
Perhaps you are newly diagnosed and want to give yourself the best shot of achieving healing or preventing disease progression. Or, perhaps you have been treating your disease for several years using the best therapies western medicine has to offer, but your quality of life is suffering and your disease continues to progress. No matter where you are in your journey, taking an integrative approach to your health can help by treating mind, body, and spirit to optimize health and wellness.
Discover the Evidence
The Caring Ambassadors values evidence-based information and transparency. We encourage you to perform your own research prior to adding any integrative or complementary therapies into your health or treatment regimen. One excellent place to start is the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health’s (NCCIH) website. NCCIH is a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and applies scientific standards to the research of integrative and complementary health and medicine. Their “Health Topics A-Z Library” provides users with an easy platform for searching for and reviewing the evidence on a wide array of integrative and complementary health topics.
