It Is Time for Integrative Medicine: This policy brief provides a current state of affairs with regards to complementary and alternative medicine in Mexico. In collaboration with the Department of Integrative Health and Medical Message located at Taos, Mexico and with the University of New Mexico Center for Life, we conducted a qualitative study that assessed the barriers and success. Key themes that emerged centered on finances, power, and stigma. We recommend crafting policies and devoting resources to emphasize the creation of inter-professional educational and increasing awareness of consumer rights. These are critical given our current fragmented and expensive health care system.
