Pediatric integrative medicine is “up and coming” Contemporary Pediatrics.
Alternative Pediatric integrative medicine combines Western medicine State-of-the-art with alternative treatment that provides a wide range of treatment options for the benefit of the child. Founder and President of a new section of the American Academy of Pediatrics Dr. Kathi Kemper, who has written a book called “The holistic pediatrician”, is dedicated to the complementary and alternative medicine.
“We support the Mission of the AAP by integrating evidence-based, safe and effective complementary therapies in pediatric practice and educate physicians and families on research on commonly used complementary therapies,” Kemper said in a press release. Complementary therapies are used in combination with traditional medicine. Holistic medicine is concerned with the care of the baby all-body, mind, emotions and spirit–within his family, culture and community. Integrative medicine focuses on well-being and healing of the whole person and focuses on involving patients and their families.
The consortium of academic health centers for integrative medicine (CAHCIM) definition applies to adults and children. “Integrative medicine is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between doctor and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing”.
