Integrative medicine and health: what is it?
For the Allies, global health is the art of caring for the living. Of the air, the water, the earth and the places. Of nature. Of plants, animals, humans. Of all of us collectively.
At the individual level, it is based on integrative health, which promotes an art of living conducive to physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being:
- by listening and taking into account the person's globality
- by helping her to become an actor in her health
- and by allowing him/her to access complementary health practices (hypnosis, meditation, adapted physical activity, yoga, osteopathy, thermalism, phyto and aromatherapies, etc.)
We speak of integrative medicine when these same people are ill and are accompanied by health professionals who practice their art of healing in accordance with these same principles, in addition to conventional medicine.
We speak of 7P medicine: Preventive, Personalized, Participatory, Predictive, Pluriprofessional and Disciplinary, Relevant and Integrating Complementary Practices
