Integrative Medicine: A Key Issue for the Future

Healthcare systems all over the world are facing great challenges: Chronic diseases are increasing and costs are rising accordingly. Many noncommunicable diseases require lifestyle changes that the integrative health global movement has solutions to. The International Congress for Integrative Health & Medicine focuses on these concepts with international experts presenting recent research, best practice models and treatment proposals for chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cancer or allergies. New perspectives for modern health care, e.g. in the fields of oncology, pediatrics or cardiology, that are closely in line with the public health goals of the World Health Organization (WHO), will be introduced.

The congress is an international co-production of the largest organization for integrative health & medicine in the USA, the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine, and the Dachverband Anthroposophische Medizin in Deutschland (DAMiD), the interprofessional organization for anthroposophic medicine in Germany. Supporting partners are important professional associations from the USA and Europe, including from Germany, the Hufelandgesellschaft, an umbrella organization of physicians’ societies for naturopathy and complementary medicine.
