Age Well, Feel Better with Integrative Medicine: an Interview with Dr. Melinda Ring

WindRock interviews leading integrative medicine expert, Dr. Melinda Ring, Medical Director of the Osher Center of Integrative Medicine at Northwestern University.  Dr. Ring shares an overview of integrative medicine not as a “new” medicine, but rather as a return to time-tested approaches; the future of personalized medicine - focusing on a patient’s unique characteristics to age well, feel better and optimize health; her experiences in treating cancer, preventing hereditary illnesses, and helping patients who do not feel well, but have hit dead-ends with traditional medicine; and the tipping point of the traditional healthcare system and what may lie ahead.  July 2014.
