Americans' Active Quest for Health Through Complementary and Integrative Medicine
Many older adults are turning to complementary and integrative approaches in their active pursuit of health and wellness. Complementary health practices are a diverse set of medical and healthcare practices and products that have historical roots outside mainstream healthcare, but are used together with standard care. Integrative medicine places strong emphasis on a holistic approach to patient care, focusing on reduced use of technology and preventive maintenance of health. While some interventions are innocuous and may provide some benefits such as symptom relief, others may have serious safety concerns.
