Global Advances in Health and Medicine (Global Advances) is the peer reviewed, open access journal that is the official publication of the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health. It was created to provide catalytic global communications services to the rapidly developing worldwide movement in health and medicine that integrates all knowledge of therapeutic approaches and lifestyle practices that promote health and healing.

From the onset, its objective has been to improve health outcomes worldwide by promoting more and broader dialogue and collaboration among healthcare providers from various disciplines, and across diverse practice patterns, cultures, and industry fields—all to create a solid multidimensional foundation for a timely shift in the direction of healthcare. With an emphasis on whole-person care, Global Advances recognizes that the causes and manifestations of illness, health, and wellbeing reflect an interplay between the individual’s mind, body, and spirit as each person encounters all elements of the human condition—physical, social, and environmental—as coherently organized, interconnected, and interdependent parts.

Global Advances in Health and Medicine publishes original research, brief reports, systematic reviews and meta-analyses, case reports and case series dealing with the full range of whole-person health and well-being, from the perspective of the individual to the community. The journal’s goal is to provide the broad diversity of health professionals with the latest knowledge from basic, clinical, epidemiological research to population health.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Interventions to promote health and wellness, prevent illness, foster healthier lifestyles
  • Treatments for symptoms and disease that focus on whole-person approaches
  • Strategies to prevent disease progression and provide palliative care
  • Randomized clinical trials of lifestyle interventions to reduce obesity in adolescents in underserved populations
  • Investigations of biomarkers that are associated with greater responses to specific dietary approaches for Type II diabetes
  • Predictors of enrollment in mindfulness or lifestyle interventions following myocardial infraction

Articles dealing with policy, ethical, and economic issues relevant to health and medicine will be included to inform the global health community. To foster exchange and insight, letters to the editor, viewpoints, feature articles, personal narrative essays, healing images, and poems will be included. Global Advances will also report on new tools and use technologies to drive innovation and improve the communication of journal content
