Most of us wish we could improve certain things about ourselves. Lasting change is difficult: Many of our habits are deeply ingrained, and certain core personality attributes may be immutable. But even the oldest of habits and character traits can be altered to varying degrees, as it's never too late to change; with effort and determination, it is possible to be the person you want to be.
Integrative medicine combines conventional and alternative, or complementary, medicine into a health care model that addresses the mind, body and spirit of the whole person. In addition to standard medical treatments, integrative medicine practitioners and programs generally incorporate evidence-based dietary changes, supplements, alternative medical techniques, and/or mind-body exercises such as yoga and meditation into their program.
