Your body's ability to heal itself is a guiding principle of integrative medicine. That doesn't mean you can't help it along a bit. “The world is moving on from this idea that you either take the conventional approach or you take the CAM (complementary and alternative medicine) approach," says Brent Bauer, medical editor for "The Mayo Clinic Book of Alternative Medicine" (Oxmoor House). "Now it's a both/and. Patients and physicians are embracing the best of the two worlds and bringing them together."
