About Us

IntegrativePractitioner.com is the only interdisciplinary community for integrative practitioners across a wide spectrum of professions and organizations. Our goal is to support the wide spectrum of integrative healthcare professionals in becoming more successful in their practices to effect positive improvements in the current standards of healthcare, policy, and to strengthen the common ground among all constituents. To support these efforts, the site will be the destination for networking, thought leadership, and sharing of ideas and experiences.

Our Mission

To foster collaboration and dialog among licensed practitioners and healthcare professionals who aim to advance integrative medicine and interact with leaders in their respective fields. Practitioners and professionals will improve patient care and enhance their businesses through peer interaction, evidence-based scientific research, forums to discuss best practices, clinical outcomes, protocols, policy, and through a robust marketplace educating professionals on the most credible and innovative products and services that support the integrative model of healthcare.
