What is Integrative Health?
Integrative health, sometimes referred to as integrative medicine, is a practice that focuses on the whole person, making use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing. The body of research literature about integrative health practices has grown significantly in recent years, particularly on acupuncture, yoga, nutrition, and mindfulness practices.
Use of integrative medicine is widespread. The 2017 National Health Interview Survey, a nationwide survey conducted by the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, found that use of integrative health practices like yoga and meditation among both adults and children has significantly increased over previous years.
Recently ranked by BestColleges.com as having the nation’s “Best Online Master’s in Health Education,” as well as one of the top ten Online Master’s in Nutrition, MUIH offers advanced degrees and graduate certificates in a wide range of wellness fields, as well as individual academic courses for professional and personal development. The University offers flexible schedules and formats, and many of the programs can be completed in as few as two years or as many as five.
MUIH is now enrolling for its Summer 2019 and Fall 2019 terms for programs in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Ayurvedic Wellness, Health and Wellness Coaching, Health Promotion, Herbal Medicine, Integrative Health Studies, Nutrition, Workplace Wellness, and Yoga Therapy.
