On Sept. 2, the prestigious Johns Hopkins opened The Johns Hopkins Integrative Medicine and Digestive Center. This is another indication that Naturopathic and Integrative Medicine is coming into the mainstream, with credibility and integrity.

One foundational approach is to support detoxification. You can learn more about digestive health and its connection to the immune system by clicking here.
