Integrative medicine is not Alternative Medicine or Complementary Medicine. It is built on three pillars:
Pillar 1: Lifestyle Management
Pillar 2: Management of the Underlying Dysfunctions
Pillar 3: Treatment of Disease
Gain more knowledge and skills to treat chronic conditions
Improve your treatment protocols
Ultimately create better community service provision
