"In the last fifty years, the concept of an holistic approach to wellness, - integrating spirit, mind and body into the health paradigm, has been called many things, some of them unrepeatable in polite company. It has morphed from alternative to complimentary and finally integrative medicine. This includes spirituality, stress modification, exercise, diet and micronutrition. "
Dr. Gerald Lemole, Medical Director Preventive Medicine & Rehabilitation Center and Center for Integrative Health
Many centers are emerging around the country primarily because the public demands empowerment and a more proactive role in their own health.
