A foundation to promote integrative medicine, towards well-being and health
The Foundation's Goals
Promote the knowledge and practice of Integrative Medicine with all professionals and provide access to this practice to a larger public.
Promote the practice of joint conventional and complementary therapies.
Give a role to the patients, at the core of their treatments.
The patient takes an active part in the process of healing and becomes more autonomous and responsible. The Integrative Medicine is a customized and intimate approach. It is the perfect combination of conventional medicine with complementary treatments, to ensure the healing and the follow-up of patients.
Together, we can improve the healthcare model
The Definition of Integrative Medicine
There are many definitions, but all of them insist on the importance of the therapeutic relationship, and put the emphasis on the person as a whole.
The concept is the result of the observation of the changing lifestyles of human beings, both on the eating habits and physical activity, altogether with well-being and stress management.
Integrative medicine uses all the appropriate therapeutic approaches, whether they are conventional or alternatives.
