Integrative medicine is a type of medical care that combines standard medical treatment with complementary and alternative therapies that have been shown to be safe and to work. These therapies treat the mind, body, and spirit.
There is increased evidence that supports integrative medicine and effective ways to combine these therapies with traditional medicine to both prevent and manage disease. Faculty from Indiana University School of Medicine, in collaboration with other IU schools and community partners, advance the scientific exploration of integrative therapies through research, education, and implementation into clinical care.
