Integrative Health is becoming a common path for many who struggle to find healthcare solutions in conventional medicine.
According to the Mayo Clinic website, “Integrative medicine can help people with cancer, persistent pain, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and many other conditions better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life by reducing fatigue, pain, and anxiety. Examples of common practices include acupuncture, animal-assisted therapy, aromatherapy, dietary supplements, massage therapy, music therapy, and meditation.”
There are more than ten million acupuncture appointments per year in the United States. According to an article in the National Library of Medicine titled, “Acupuncture: Past, Present, and Future,” the popularity can be “attributed to scientific studies that prove its efficacy.” And because of the promising research, even conventional medicine is taking a more thoughtful approach to studying the benefits of integrative health.
However, like many “unconventional” medical services, patients may have difficulty getting insurance coverage, and providers may find obtaining reimbursement problematic or impossible.
