During my doctoral education at Johns Hopkins University, my research was focused on how mainstream clinicians could integrate natural medicine into their patient care. I discovered there is compelling peer-reviewed evidence that supports integrating natural therapies into clinical care. As medical providers, we should be using the best treatment choice for our patients, regardless if it is considered mainstream or alternative.
