What Exactly is an Integrative Medicine Doctor? And the top 10 reasons you should see one now.

Uncategorized Jun 20, 2023

When people hear the term “Integrative Medicine” they often think of some alternative quack doctor who burns sage in their office, doles out tiger phallus soup or believes in bloodletting and snake venom?” Unfortunately, they don’t think of Stanford or Duke University trained practitioners of healing. Luckily this is changing.


Modern medicine, or conventional medicine, is what most people think of when envisioning doctors and healthcare today. With it comes the dogma of rigorous medical school training, homogenous patient evaluations, institutionalized protocols, and standardized therapeutic interventions mostly relying on invasive procedures and pharmaceutical medications.

Science-Based Ways to Overcome Unhealthy Eating Habits

Written by IFM Staff

 Recent research is helping clinicians better understand what patients really need in order to make sustainable and effective changes in their diets. Studies suggest that direct access to healthy food is one way to improve psychological and physical well-being. When patients with chronic disease are provided with support that helps them to make healthier choices—even over a short period of time—both health and well-being improve.

In a randomized controlled trial over a two-week period, researchers investigated the effects of giving a group of young people a $10 voucher for fruits and vegetables and twice daily text reminders versus giving them the actual fruits and vegetables worth $10 with no reminders.1 While both groups increased their intake of fruit and vegetables, only the group that was given fruits and vegetables showed improvement on measures of flourishing, vitality, and...

Does The FDA Have Your Back... Or Big Pharma's?

Uncategorized Jan 23, 2022
