committee said, ďWe hope to achieve two main goals at this
conference. The first is to strengthen and support Integrative
Medicine in Asia by understanding ways in which we can develop the
current health system to provide more effective means of diagnosis
and treatment. This can be achieved by looking at the way
Integrative Medicine is practised around the world.
ďOur second goal is to demonstrate the benefits of Integrated
Medicine in our society with exchange of ideas and to provide a
forum for further innovation and development. We have planned many
activities for delegates at this first-ever event in Asia, such as
meditation, yoga, qi gong workshops and many more. This conference
does not only broaden our knowledge of Integrative Medicine, but
to allow delegates to fully experience it.Ē
Medicine combines conventional Western medicine with safe,
evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies to focus on
the whole person to achieve optimal wellness where the patient
also has a greater sense of personal control.
