Integrative medicine and health: Mayo Clinic Radio
Mayo Clinic's Integrative Medicine and Health team offers integrative therapies such as acupuncture, massage and meditation to help people manage disease symptoms by reducing fatigue, pain and anxiety. Now, Mayo Clinic is taking it a step further. A new Mayo Clinic book, Mayo Clinic: The Integrative Guide to Good Health, addresses all aspects of health, including mind, body and spirit. The book aims to show how home remedies can meet alternative therapies to transform well-being.
On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Brent Bauer, director of the Mayo Clinic Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program and one of the authors of the book, will discuss how complementary techniques can enhance conventional medicine. Also on the program, Dr. Michael Camilleri, a gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic, discusses a new study that found a prescription medication used to treat Type 2 diabetes and obesity is also an effective weight-loss therapy. And Dr. Adam Kase, a resident at Mayo Clinic, will share how his training in the Mayo Clinic Multidisciplinary Simulation Center helped him save a life during jury duty.
