The Integrative Medicine Consortium—a collaborating group of national physician organizations dedicated to making integrative medicine the standard of care—just held its first national medical conference. See photos below.

The IMC’s organizations have dedicated themselves to increasing awareness of the importance of the physical, mental, emotional, environmental, social, and spiritual aspects of health and wellness.
The name iMosaic stands for Integrative Medicine Offering Science-based Alternatives in Collaboration. The conference was put together by the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), American Holistic Medical Association (AHMA), and the International College of Integrative Medicine (ICIM).
ANH-USA was joined by our European colleagues from the Alliance for Natural Health International. Gretchen DuBeau, our executive and legal director, and Dr. Robert Verkerk, executive and scientific director of ANH-Int’l, gave an important panel discussion on international threats to natural health and dietary supplements.
ANH-USA also hosted a very popular cocktail hour and awards ceremony at the iMosaic conference. We handed out Natural Health Advocate Awards to Dr. Gerald Natzke, Dr. Bill Manahan, Dr. Jeanne Drisko, and Dr. Robban Sica for their outstanding contributions to the natural health freedom movement. We are so very grateful for their efforts and look forward to working with all of them to protect access to natural health options.

    Its about time we get some smart doctors who just don’t give drugs!

  2. I am overwhelmed at the grandiousness of what Integrative Medicine is becoming. I am so very thankful for your work and just appreciate all of it.
    I started Integrative Health Diagnostics Inc. 20 years ago as a new career and as a personal goal that was driven not by market demand but by doing what just felt right in the healthcare field.
    I am impressed that many of the award recipients are MD’s.
    Thanks again for looking out on our behalf. Great work!!

  3. Very proud that these courageous individuals are promoting self governing in the area of health by including integrative health so individuals can make their own decissions about their health and the approach they feel is best suited for them.
