Integrative medicine, in its therapeutic approach, is conceptually based on the unity of body and mind. Health and ill health are the result of dysregulation of the body by the brain. The therapeutic aim is therefore to activate and promote innately developed mechanisms by the body-brain axis, underlying the regulation of health and healing. Various peripheral and central neural systems are involved in this regulation. Understanding the complexity and integration of these various systems is key to understanding an effective treatment approach as a healthcare practitioner. Pain education and philosophy has, for a long time, been confined to the dark ages of medicine. Re-evaluating our understanding of these mechanisms is paramount to the success of treating our patients.
