What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is a term used to cover a broad range of practices that integrate Western medicine with complementary and alternative medicine and traditional medicine. 

What is integrative geriatric medicine?

Integrative geriatrics, also known as integrative geriatric medicine, is a new field of medicine that advocates for a whole-person, patient-centered, primarily non-pharmacological approach to medical care of the elderly. Most current geriatric practices overprescribe medications and procedures and underutilize non-pharmacological, low-cost, high-touch methods. Patients, however, often show reluctance towards these standard practices, as the interventions they rely upon are often invasive. The practice of integrative geriatrics is rooted in lifestyle interventions, such as nutrition, movement therapies, and mind-body and spirituality approaches, that allow patients to have different path to their healthcare-one that utilizes pharmaceuticals and invasive procedures only when safer integrative approaches are not available or not effective. by Mikhail Kogan , Andrew Weil.

Acupuncture is integrative medicine and the best option for senior health care:

Why acupuncture treatment is suitable for senior health care?
The functions of organs, tissues and cells are declining with aging, therefore, the abilities of seniors' organs and tissues to metabolite, secret and/or excrete drugs and drug metabolites are declining as well. Acupuncture is a drug-free therapy. Acupuncture send signaling to cell, tissue and organ through mechanical stimulation to modulate/reset host neuroimmunoendocrine network to regain its balance. However, the effects of drugs and herbs are through chemical stimulation and chemical receptors to send signaling to human body. As we know, all the drugs and even natural herbs are toxic, at different extents, to biological organism, they all have side effects to the host. Some natural herbs are extremely toxic to human body. So please do not think herb medication is safe. In addition, the detoxification abilities of senior are declining with aging as stated at the beginning.
