Leading the way in integrative psychology and medicine
The National Institute for Integrative Healthcare (NIIH) is a leading-edge nonprofit dedicated to therapies, research, and education in the fields of Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology.
Research has shown that emerging methods such as mindfulness, stress reduction, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), and the Relaxation Response are “evidence-based” practices for addressing both emotional trauma and physical symptoms. NIIH is dedicated to conducting empirical research in these methods, as well as expanding patient access by fostering their adoption in primary care settings.
A Leader in Applying Epigenetic Methods
Through its research projects and educational programs, NIIH investigates the epigenetic effects of intention, consciousness and energy in healing. New research shows that consciousness (beliefs, emotions, optimism, altruism, visualization, prayer, energy, meditation) has epigenetic effects, affecting cellular processes at the most fundamental levels of molecular biology. Epigenetics is the branch of science describing influences that alter the expression of genes (epi=above; epigenetic=control of DNA from above or outside the gene). NIIH is a leader in applying these methods for better health, happiness and longevity.
