MONTH KEY MESSAGES
Integrative health professionals share a commitment to using evidence-based approaches as they collectively migrate from the current disease-care model to a holistic, sustainable, person-centered model.
Integrative health practitioners utilize a range of safe and effective options in diagnosis and treatment utilizing evidence-based approaches.
Practitioners who are trained in evidence-based integrative care can include medical doctors, functional medicine doctors, osteopathic doctors, naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, registered nurses, licensed nutritionists, midwives, pharmacists, dentists, licensed massage therapists, and many more.
Central to the practice of any integrative health and medicine approach is a shared value of treating the whole person – mind, body, spirit, community and planet.
