My two year fellowship in Integrative Medicine with Dr. Andrew Weil through the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine has been life changing. Through this training, I have been able to reconnect with the real reason I became a physician; to ease the suffering of others and help them attain lifelong health and wellness, not to medicate their symptoms.
Years after completing medical school and residency, I have come full circle to study the application of nutrition, herbal medicine, mind-body therapies, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, manual medicine, and so much more to treat and prevent disease. The science supporting these therapies is vast and integrative medicine is on its way to becoming mainstream, as it should be.
There are only 1500 physicians in the world who are trained in Integrative Medicine through the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine’s internationally recognized program. We are doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who are learning to bring back HEALING to medicine and working hard to TRANSFORM healthcare for our patients and ourselves! Thank you Dr. Weil for being our pioneer and setting the path to a better way.
