What is Philippine Integrative Medicine?

 

INAM’s concept of Philippine Integrative Medicine (PIM) is that it is an awareness, a consciousness of viewing health as a state of total well-being resulting from the interplay of socio-economic, political and spiritual aspects of life. Basic to this consciousness is the understanding that health is a fundamental human right and responsibility of the individual and, collectively, of the community.

The relationship among those who uphold this consciousness is characterized by partnership, of one among equals, being interdependent and mutually transformative of each other. The practice of PIM is expressed with the values of respect, equality, participation, responsibility, interdependence, solidarity, mutuality and openness.

This PIM consciousness adheres to the integration of different systems of medicine based on empirical and scientific knowledge, rooted in the culture of the people. Such an integrated system addresses the health problems in the community through promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative services, which are accessible, affordable, available, effective and acceptable to the people.

PIM, as an evolving consciousness, emphasizes the direct, responsible and sustained participation of people in the development of their alternative health care systems, an indicator of the fulfillment of their aspiration for self-determination.
