INTRODUCTION

Integrative medicine is grounded in the definition of health. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Integrative medicine seeks to restore and maintain health and wellness across a person’s lifespan by understanding the patient’s unique set of circumstances and addressing the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect health. Through personalizing care, integrative medicine goes beyond the treatment of symptoms to address all the causes of an illness. In doing so, the patient’s immediate health needs as well as the effects of the long-term and complex interplay between biological, behavioral, psychosocial and environmental influences are taken into account. Integrative medicine is a combination of mainstream (conventional) of medicine with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), for which there is a high quality scientific evidences of safety and effectiveness. Integrative medicine is the need of the hour as most of the patients themselves are self-integrating several systems of medicine and therapies to cope up for their chronic illness / lifestyle diseases. At present evidences are lacking in the integrative medicine and they are only a few Universities working towards the same in India. In the year 2013, Dept. of Community Medicine, conducted ‘SAMANVAYA - a conference on Alternative Medicine’ which had brainstorming sessions on Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy (AYUSH) by eminent speakers from different specialty, which led the foundation for Integrative Medicine by upgrading the existing division of Yoga in Sri Devaraj Urs Academy of Higher Education and Research (SDUAHER), Kolar under the faculty of Allied Health Sciences. As far as our knowledge SDUAHER, is the first University to introduce Yoga in the medical and nursing curriculum.

VISION

“ • To make the department as a Center of Excellence in the field of Integrative Medicine through education, research and clinical services.”
