From Emory University, this is a useful talk on how we can move toward an integrative medicine model.

Transitioning to Integrative Medicine
Published on Apr 3, 2013

Dr. Yoon Hang John Kim talks about integrative medicine, a healing-oriented approach that takes account of the whole person (body, emotion, and spirit) including all aspects of lifestyle (March 26, 2013). Integrative medicine emphasizes the healing relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative, including:
  • Conventional Medicine
  • Homeopathy
  • Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs
  • Energy Healing
  • Nutrition - Food As Medicine, Anti-inflammatory Foods, Low Glycemic Foods, and Hypoallergenic Food Choices
  • Naturopathy
  • Mind-Body Medicine
His talk was sponsored by the Center for the Study of Human Health (CSHH), which was established to centralize and organize Emory's rich resource base of opportunities in health-related studies. The Center provides a home for unique interdisciplinary undergraduate curricula, as well as a functional unit where an interdisciplinary faculty-based consortium can develop path-breaking programs and research.
