Integrative Medicine’s Role in a Traditional Medicine Model
On December 1st, 30 Alliance and general community members participated in an informative program with Dr. Chasse Bailey-Dorton, Atrium Health, to learn about integrative medicine, which is evidence-based, complimentary to conventional medicine (not instead of), and individualized to treat the whole person (mind, body and spirit), and not just the disease.
Dr. Douglas Kirsch outlined correlations between sleep restriction, obesity and heart disease, explained common sleep disorders, and shared tips to achieve 7-8 hours of quality sleep for better emotional and physical health.
