Healthy Sleep: First of Five 'Pillars of Health and Wellness'
We know that healthy sleep is one of the key components of integrative medicine, but at its essence, what does "integrative" health really entail?
Lori Knutson, RN, BSN, administrative director of Meridian Integrative Health & Medicine, recently stopped by 94.3 The Point to help answer that very question.
"When we talk about integrative health and medicine, we're talking about an umbrella term for all of the complimentary therapies that we bring into conventional medicine," Knutson says. "We call it 'integrative' because it's a combination of traditional Western medicine and other treatments such as massage, acupuncture, movement therapy, and more."
Sleep is one of the "five pillars of health and wellness" comprising the essence of Meridian Integrative Health & Medicine, along with nutrition, activity, resilience and purpose, according to Knutson.
Listen to Knutson's interview with 94.3 The Point to learn more about Meridian Integrative Health & Medicine and the five pillars of health and wellness.
