Inclusion of Integrative Medicine in Clinical Practice

Abstract

Most Western medicines are synthetic chemical products that come with side effects for patients, and therefore, our modern medical system needs to be optimized. A new concept called integrative medicine represents a more comprehensive system for understanding our body in a holistic fashion in terms of analyzing, evaluating and treating complex diseases successfully. Integrative medicine may be the combination of Western medicine and complementary/alternative medicine (CAM) [1] in the United States and Europe, and in China, it might consist of integrated traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Western medicine [2] .
