Dr. Weil is known world-wide as a leader in the movement to change medicine to more patient-centered care instead of emphasis on management of the disease; and also more health promotion and disease prevention through better lifestyle choices, meditation, stress management, regular exercise, and especially good nutrition. I believe that health care will be going in this direction and that since nutrition is a cornerstone of integrative medicine, we need us and our colleagues trained in functional and integrative nutrition therapies.
