The mission of the International Association of Iranian Integrative Medical Physicians is to promote the Holistic view of Traditional Medicine backed up with clinical and scientific research within the health care system with the most non-invasive and practical approach as a functional Medicine, and to promote health care practitioners who are committed to a lifelong pursuit to provide quality care to their patients and to the development of integrative medicine, which is the new healthcare for the 21st century as the Future Medicine.
What is Integrative Medicine?
Many patients have never heard of integrative medicine, but this holistic movement has left its imprint on many of the world’s hospitals, universities, medical schools and patients alike.
In fact, many medical schools in the United States now include integrative medicine in their curriculum. Beginning in 2014, U.S. physicians will be able to be accredited in integrative medicine.
Therefore, IAIIMP aims to promote the recognition of integrators, both qualified MDs or non-MD background integrators, to be recognized internationally as a Primary Health Practitioner to reach optimal health.
Integrators should be credentialed from accredited institutions and have passed board exams in their respective countries.
With this aim, it is essential that each country have an accredited educational institution to provide a recognized and qualified integrative medicine program to meet a globally-accepted standard of medical practice.
Treating the Whole Person
Both doctors and patients alike are responding favorably to the philosophy of a whole-person approach — designed to focus on the overall wellness and health of the whole person, not just the disease or ailment.
Integrative Medicine is the New Health Care for a New Era
It has been suggested that modern, traditional doctors have become so specialized in treating a particular disease that the aspect of healing and overall wellness has been neglected. While it is important for a patient to participate in a traditional health care regimen, they should integrate practices that also treat their mind and body.
Acupuncture, nutrition counseling, Homeopathic Medicine, Persian Medicine, lifestyle modification, meditation and herbal therapy are among some of the safe, effective, evidence- and science-based practices that bring individuals to their optimal health.
An important aspect to integrative medicine, often referred to as IM, is the partnership between the patient and the IM doctor, where the goal is to address the patient’s ailment or concerns, while treating the mind and body with holistic practices and methods that are backed up with clinical and scientific research.
Furthermore, the IAIIMP offers important and meaningful credential programs and supplemental education that promote research in the integration of safe, effective medical treatment methods.
The IAIIMP is focused on establishing integrative treatment protocols, including allopathic medicine where appropriate, which result in improved clinical outcomes that supports a healthcare community that practices healing and wellness by addressing the mind and body.
