According to The Arizona Center of Integrative Medicine, the Defining Principles of Integrative Medicine (IM) are:​​

  • Patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.

  • All factors that influence health, wellness, and disease are taken into consideration, including mind, spirit, and community, as well as the body.

  • Appropriate use of both conventional and alternative methods facilitates the body's innate healing response.

  • Effective interventions that are natural and less invasive should be used whenever possible.

  • Integrative medicine neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative therapies uncritically.

  • Good medicine is based in good science. It is inquiry-driven and open to new paradigms.

  • Alongside the concept of treatment, the broader concepts of health promotion and the prevention of illness are paramount.

  • Practitioners of integrative medicine should exemplify its principles and commit themselves to self-exploration and self-development.
