Traditional medicine allows us to incorporate wisdom from many cultures and centuries of practice. Contemporary medicine allows us to examine the evidence, the clinical applications of traditional medicine. For example, CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) has now been replaced with Integrative Medicine and Health. This shift illustrates the importance for each of us to be an active participant in our health and wellness care.

By incorporating both, we tap into our innate wisdom and allow us to tap into the wisdom that ultimately supports our body, mind, and soul. It proves to be beneficial for those seeking health goals as well as for those who are currently experiencing health challenges.
