Thousands of people with Gastrointestinal Disorders including Chronic Constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Hemorrhoids, Diverticular Disease and Colitis are treated successfully in 17 Integrative Medicine Clinics across the United States with a combination of Nutrition, Supplements, Vitamins, Probiotics, Meditation, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Yoga, Functional Medicine and Massage. Additional modalities incorporated into treatment include Guided Imagery, Biofeedback, Exercise and Mental Health Counseling.
These clinics cited Gastrointestinal Disorders as one of “five conditions for which you are having the most clinical success” in a survey conducted last year by The Bravewell Collaborative. The report Integrative Medicine in America: How Integrative Medicine Is Being Practiced in Clinical Centers Across the United States documents how integrative medicine is being practiced across the United States in 29 clinics.
These clinics support more than 40,000 patient visits each month, offer a variety of care models and collaborate closely with affiliated hospitals. They employ a wide range of practitioners skilled in modalities including mind body interventions, movement and energy, dietary and biological, manual interventions and medical systems.
