Our local health care community continues to take big steps towards integrative medicine. Desert Regional’s Comprehensive Cancer Center has opened a second location in La Quinta, working with complementary practitioners on the Valley’s east end. And this month, EMC launches the Eisenhower Wellness Institute.
However, many of us are confused by the new terminology being used to explain “integration.” Below we provide definitions from the National Institutes of Health to help in understanding the movement. As primary care physicians and alternative practitioners begin to open their minds and work together for the well-being of their patients, we consumers will benefit most of all.
Desert Health is proud to be the Valley’s premier publication promoting integrative health. We thank you for your support and encourage your input and feedback.
