Most integrative practitioners, especially those in ACIM, understand that a person should have an active, rather than a passive, role in their own health care. We are complex beings consisting of spirit, mind, and body. It is important to understand the intricate interactions between the various elements that make up each individual and that diagnosis and treatment protocols should be a unique just as the person is unique. Each person has been created with the remarkable ability to be healed from within. Equipping health professionals in assisting an individual to heal as naturally and completely as possible is a worthy goal that we at ACIM embrace passionately and fully. To this end, we will bring to the health professional all the best knowledge available, no matter the source. Some currently effective treatments taught by ACIM Professors have been used for well over 2,000 years, and some are remarkably new and innovative. The graphic at the bottom of the page shows the "Person Centered Concept" that ACIM embraces. Each person should control the decisions that are made concerning their health with the support and advice of those pictured around person.
