    Functional Integration

    Structural Integration Structural Integration or Health - MallApproach
    Recognizing the need for multi-disciplinary approach in the management of lifestyle diseases, medical community has progressed to integrate the traditional medicine. This is often done, by having traditional medicine physicians and therapists under one roof. Thus, a patient gets access to and can choose to avail the services of traditional medicine along with the conventional medicine. The disadvantage of this approach is that-the onus is on patients to choose the required form of traditional medicine

    Functional Integration
    The answer to such a problem is a proactive-progressive approach called Functional Integration. In this approach physicians of both conventional and traditional medicine work together and come up with a comprehensive - integrative prescription. Thus traditional medicine, which is treated as an option becomes medically valid prescription.

    Evidence Based Integrative Medicine

    Evidence Medicine is all about ensuring the safety and efficacy of the treatments offered to a patient. Hence professionals and patients alike demand high quality clinical evidence. Adopting medical advances and strong evidence in clinical practice is called 'Evidence - Based - Medicine'. This allows professionals to be transparent amongst themselves and with patients about treatment strategies being adopted.

    Traditional medicine needs this approach to become part of the Integrative Medicine. While these are practiced for over 5000 years, traditional medicine needs to be validated and evaluated to ensure safety and efficacy. Hence, ONLY those components of traditional medicine, which are clinically tested, would have to be adopted to evolve and practice 'Evidence Based Integrative Medicine'.'.
