COVID-19During these unprecedented times, people are wondering what they can do to stay safe and healthy and minimize the risks of contracting COVID-19. This section will be updated regularly and contains resources for clinicians and patients on nutrition and lifestyle-related practices to fortify health, wellness, and resilience during this time.


Integrative Whole Health Resources

The Integrative Health educational resources on this page are organized into Self-care and Professional care categories based on the Circle of Health graphic shown below. For more information about how to use the Circle of Health see Whole Health: Integrative Care Starts With Me

Circle of Health

Self-Care – Organized into eight components of pro-active self-care and focused on lifestyle strategies and skills to support the whole person, body, mind, and spirit.

Professional Care – Explore ways clinicians and others can enhance whole health and well-being for various conditions through an integrative approach while bringing the best clinical care to patients.

Complementary and Integrative Approaches – Explore therapeutic and lifestyle approaches to health that focus on the whole person, are informed by evidence, and are aimed at achieving optimal health and healing.

Modules: All modules include a brief overview for clinicians, and several downloadable PDFs, including a more detailed handout for clinicians, a patient-focused handout, and one or more handouts on relevant topics for integrative approaches to care.

Handouts: These downloadable PDF files are patient-focused education on integrative self-care.
