adults in the United States uses some form of integrative medicine, and about 1 in 9 children has used integrative therapies.

As Americans seek greater control of their health, explosive growth is taking place in the field of integrative medicine. More and more, people are looking for more natural or holistic ways to maintain good health; they want not only to manage and prevent illness but also to improve their quality of life overall.

At the same time, more treatments that were once considered “on the fringe” are slowly being integrated into conventional medicine. The key word to focus on here is “integrated.”

Although the term “integrative medicine” may be new to you, it’s reflected in the title of this book for a reason. It’s a term that’s been in the works for many years now — a concept that was known as alternative medicine back in 2007, when Mayo Clinic Book of Alternative Medicine was first published. That’s because these types of treatments were seen as alternatives to conventional medicine. Since then, the term “alternative medicine” has gone through several evolutions as more is learned about this growing field.
