According to findings of a recent health summit organized by the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies, "stakeholders must determine which models and approaches to health care, conventional or otherwise, best integrate the science, caring, efficiency, and results that patients desire and that improve optimal health and well-being." Today's newsletter focuses on complementary methods of healing.
