To inspire medical students and allopathic physicians to integrate
effective CAM modalities into their practice in order to better serve
each individual patient.
Complementary and Alternative Medicine is a phrase that suggests
allopathic medical practitioners can incorporate non-allopathic
(alternative) modalities in order to create a holistic (complementary)
practice that will support and promote individual health
To live long, live slowly. -Cicero
The wider and freer a man's general education, the better practitioner he is likely to be.
-Sir William Osler
By health I mean the power to live a full, adult, living, breathing
life in close contact with...the earth and the wonders
Of one thing I am certain, the body is not the measure of healing- peace is the measure.
