Happy International Integrative Health Day

Each year, January 23 is International Integrative Health Day and we at Integrative Practitioner wanted to take a moment to recognize you for being invaluable members of the healing community.

This day is about coming together and inspiring worldwide dialog, education, collaboration, research initiatives, and programming about medicine that is patient-centered, holistic, economically and environmentally sustainable, and conscious of integrating different global medical systems.

Here are some ideas to celebrate today:

Practice/experience integrative healthcare

Today is a day to celebrate your practice, as well as the work of other integrative providers.

Eat a healthy meal with friends or loved ones

We’ve got you covered with these food-as-medicine recipes. Or click here try a delicious smoothie or nutrient-packed dessert.

Spend time in nature

Go for a walk outside, enjoy a hike, explore a nearby beach. Give yourself a break today and reconnect with the world around you.

Write a gratitude list

It’s been shown that patients who kept a gratitude journal had inflammatory markers go down. Gratitude is a fantastic stress management tool. Take time to cultivate a grateful heart today and list the things you are thankful for.

Take a moment for mindfulness

Practice deep breathing and focus on that which is in front of you in that moment, without judgement, criticism, or attachment.

Treat yourself

 Expand your integrative knowledge with one of our podcasts, webinars, whitepapers, or e-resources. Enjoy!

Attend a conference

 Our 2019 Integrative Healthcare Symposium is right around the corner, and is a fantastic opportunity to network with your peers and learn cutting-edge best practices from the industry’s leading experts. We hope to see you there!  

Today is your day
