What is Integrative Medicine/Health?
We believe it is a wellness approach that addresses the whole person—mind, body and spirit. This approach seeks to combine two things: the best conventional medical practices and the best complementary strategies to produce the most substantive health benefits. However, it does not serve as a replacement or alternative to standard of care treatment, but instead, these two approaches work together synergistically.

Evidence-Based Complementary Treatments & Strategies
Just a couple of decades ago, the concepts of integrative medicine and integrative wellness would have been relatively foreign to many people. But now, these ideas, originally driven by a small, concerned section of the public, are being embraced by leading medical schools; medical education providers; hospitals and physicians; and innovative nutritional supplement providers, like Mannatech, who recognize a responsibility to promote global wellness.
Good health can be better maintained when you take a more active role in caring for yourself. There really are a lot of simple things you can do to support your own wellness. Consider some of these ideas:
- Nutrition Consume more natural foods and water, and add food-based supplements to your diet.
- Cleansing Avoid adding harmful foods and toxins into or around your body
- Spirituality Cultivate an awareness of spirit or the energy within and all around you.
- Relationships Fill your life with positive, uplifting people, and be a positive influence on others.
- Activity Keep moving. Frequent and regular exercise boosts the immune system.
- Standard of Care Medicine Establish a strong doctor-patient relationship; schedule regular checkups.
These concepts go hand in hand with our belief in educating and empowering people to take responsibility for their own wellness—body, mind and spirit. We are committed to changing the future of health care through an integrative healthcare solution—a timeless solution whose time has come.
