The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health defines integrative medicine as bringing together conventional (usual or mainstream care or “Western” medicine) with complementary traditional/ancient medical treatments in a coordinated way. In the United States, an estimated 38 percent of adults (about 4 in 10) and 12 percent of children (about 1 in 9) are using some form of complementary and/or alternative medicine. Sixty percent of people with cancer take two or more dietary supplements daily.
