Celebrating the diversity of integrative medicine: Essential to moving forward integrative medicine's role in primary health care and public health

In this issue – as in all issues – I sought to identify a common theme among articles so that I could write an introductory editorial that appropriately and adequately encompassed the articles herein. However, as I observed the running order it soon became apparent that there was no “consistent” theme as such. There is a guest editorial on the legal and regulatory aspects of integrative medicine [1], a commentary highlighting the need to build a practice-based research network for integrative medicine practitioners [2], a review of the interactions between complementary medicines and emerging pharmaceutical anti-coagulant and anti-thrombotic drugs [3], original research articles presenting research results of Indian trials for hydrotherapy [4] and yoga and naturopathy [5], our first published clinical case study on diabetes management and a publication guide for clinicians and clinic managers to share their practice models with our readership [7].
