Summary : A family tragedy—the loss of his youngest brother at age eighteen from an osteosarcoma of the skull—triggered Dr. Drouin’s interest in studying medicine. Unsatisfied with the model of healing he encountered in medical school, he explored many other models of medicine that eventually led him to practice what is now called integrative medicine. He soon realized that for these complementary medicines to be accepted and integrated into our health care system, they must be scientifically recognized and become part of the curriculum in medical schools. The entire foundation of our approach to health and disease must be redefined through a deeper understanding of reality as described by quantum physics. Dr. Drouin’s initial quest has evolved into the creation of a medical and natural medicine curriculum that embraces this new paradigm of healing and the foundation of the International Quantum University for Integrative Medicine (Quantum University). The cost of an incomplete model of understanding in medicine has enormous consequences in the management of chronic and mind-related disease. Creative integrative medicine addresses the real questions and offers a solution to the present crisis in health care. “Dr. Paul Drouin is a true hero for writing this long overdue book. Finally, people are being told the truth about health, healing, and alternative treatments. This book has sound scientific proof to empower you back to true ‘health’ care instead of ‘sick’ care. Read and learn.” —Joe Dispenza, DC, New York Times best-selling author of You Are the Placebo and Evolve Your Brain

Summary : This study tracks the establishment of a single hospital-based integrative medicine center. Although some factors clearly worked in favor of the center, the hospital had few models to guide it and no experience in creating such a clinic. Thus, it made many decisions in the areas of administration, finance, and legal issues that created barriers to the center's success, and the center was ultimately closed.

Summary : Integrative Medicine - General Practice the Integrative Approach Series. This chapter introduces the concept of integrative medicine and the healthcare revolution. The emergence of evidence-based medicine and, more recently, evidence-based complementary medicine is challenging many previously held notions of best practice. As evidence emerges, many Western medical therapies are being confirmed as correct, or challenged as ineffective or harmful. Similarly, many complementary therapies are being confirmed as correct, while others are being found ineffective or harmful. Such is the inevitable evolution of healthcare. It is also important that evidence-based healthcare at very level be considered a ‘work-in-progress’, whether it is in the discovery of the genetic basis of disease, the development of previously untested technology or the clinical application of a treatment. The nature of scientific research is such that new information becomes available at a great rate, and that knowledge often changes the status quo. It is in the GP’s consulting room that patients ideally have the opportunity to explore what is likely to be the best option for their healthcare. We see the gamut of health concerns, from a person wanting a check-up and interested in doing more to maintain good health, to a patient who is symptomatic and wanting a diagnosis and treatment, or a patient with an established diagnosis who is looking for either a cure or a way of optimising their wellbeing as they live with their illness.

Summary : Pain is the most common complaint amongst all patients seeking care from all types of health practitioners. It is estimated that 40% of patient visits to health care practitioners are for the management of pain. The problem of pain and other functional complaints is an ever larger proportion of the practice of integrative medicine. Complementary and alternative medical modalities have much to offer in managing pain and functional complaints, as well as presenting new and unique perspectives on the phenomenon of pain. This book is also unique in taking into account cultural, historical and social factors in pain and pain management. While not a topic in itself (with the exception of the introductory chapter) it is a perspective that infuses all the topics of the book.

Summary : In recent years, people seek alternative ways to solve health problems by increasing use of Integrative medicine. The term integrative medicine by most definitions would include the idea and practice of adding complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) to range of therapeutic options in strictly conventional medical environments. However, the two approaches based on two different paradigms: the biomedical model based upon the reductionism principle whereby mind and body are separated and reduces the illness to a disturbance in the biochemical process and therapy is intended to restore the biochemical processes to normal. While most of the CAM based upon holistic principle that recognizes the body, psyche and soul as an integrated and coherent whole. However, the psychological and spiritual realms remain mysterious and separated from the biomedical model. This book presents a new paradigm whereby body and soul are two faces of the same reality like particle and wave in quantum physics. Disease is a process that indicates a dissonance between the soul and the physical body due to specific psychological conflict or trauma that leads to an imbalance of vital energy of the cells. The purpose of this new approach wants to go beyond the resolution of physical symptoms and the neurotic states. The state of psycho-physical well-being and the interpersonal relations are no longer a goal, but they become tools that enable the individual to complete the learning process to follow his path that leads him to grow and evolve towards the light. Healing process is, therefore, a developmental process that leads the oppressive human mental barrier to spiritual liberation, giving deep satisfaction and happiness to achieve the complete well-being as it was defined by the WHO.
