chapter  1
Why integrated health care?
Pages 4

Integration is the holistic approach to health care using conventional and comp-

lementary therapies, bringing the human touch back to modern medicine.

This book is written from the perspective that a medical diagnosis is already

established. It is envisaged that the information is used to consider appropriate

integration using various therapies and treatments: a combination that provides a

truly integrated healthcare system – the marriage of complementary and conven-

tional medicine.
