Overview of the Conference:

Integrative medicine (IM) focuses on a person’s physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual facets to promote overall health and well-being. IM blends traditional medical and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies as a discipline. Over the years, there has been a substantial expansion in the field, paralleled by the growth in the evidence supporting its efficacy. Given the numerous benefits associated with IM, such as improved overall health and well-being, reduced symptoms of chronic diseases, increased quality of life, reduced side effects of conventional treatments, and increased patient satisfaction, IM’s popularity has also grown.
