Abstract

Nurse practitioners and TCM providers often embrace a similar holistic view of health and wellness. Both recommend health promotion and recognize that disease prevention requires harmony, balance, and moderation in diet, exercise, work-play, relationships, rest/sleep. In order to protect from external causes of disease, the host must be strong, fortified, and resilient-all of which results from harmonious and mindful living. Patients requesting TCM interventions should be referred to a qualified practitioner, which can be found at http://www.nccaom.org/find/index.html.
