Integrative Medicine - Preventive & Wellness Health Care

Click on picture above to visit ACAM

The American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating physicians and other health care professionals on the safe and effective application of integrative medicine. ACAM's healthcare model focuses on prevention of illness and a strive for total wellness. 
What is integrative medicine?
Integrative medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind, and spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative.
So...I thought that doctors are SUPPOSED to be taught this anyways! Guess not! So, imagine that. A place that teaches PREVENTIVE medicine that strives for TOTAL wellness using BOTH conventional AND alternative therapies! Hmmmm...sounds like something that SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE in the first place to me!!!!
