Integrative Medicine

I have always believed that when alternative and traditional medicine come together that we will make great progress in health. I believe that both Western and Eastern medicine have something important to offer and I have always liked Dr. Andrew Weil's claim that Western medicine is best for acute illness and Eastern medicine tends to work best on the prevention and treatment for chronic illnesses. While watching a taped show of Dr. Oz, I discovered that 1/3 of medical school deans have pledged to adapt integrative medicine, which combines both. YAHOO! That is great news.
