Integrative Medicine

The Life Raft Group sponsors a series of videos specifically focused on Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors.  However, the information that Dr. Ashwin Mehta, Medical Director of Integrative Medicine, presents is so important.  Watch it and enjoy.

I really like that he looks at nutrition, physical activity, sleep and mindfulness from a research perspective–rigorous, evidence based, scientific, but still addresses the whole person.

He also differentiates between Alternative Medicine versus Integrative Medicine.  Alternative, he argues, offers an alternative to mainstream medicine. Whereas Integrative medicine is complementary to mainstay treatment.
