Integrative Medicine Minute with Juli Johnson #2: Why an Anti-Inflammatory Diet is Good for Your Health

The topic of how Americans care for their health hits the news every day. But no matter where you land on the debate, it seems like now, more than ever before, people are interested in alternatives to conventional health care.

That’s where Integrative Medicine comes in. It is one of the most important ideas in “wellness” and has become more mainstream in recent years. Integrative Medicine sees health as a personal journey, one that stretches beyond just being disease-free. It focuses on caring for the whole human being — mind, body and spirit — and not just flesh, bones and organs.

Today is the second installment in a new video series with Juli Johnson, who is an APRN and Integrative Medicine practitioner at INTEGRIS. In this video Juli discusses an anti-inflammatory diet and why it’s so important for good health. Scroll down to the bottom of your screen to watch the video.
