Prescribing Exercise for Depression
An extensive body of research throughout the past decade indicates that exercise may be an effective treatment for depression, and might even help prevent us from becoming depressed in the first place. The studies pool outcomes from past research involving more than a million men and women and, taken together, strongly suggest that regular exercise alters our bodies and brains in ways that make us resistant to despair.

Through a collaboration with Frost & Sullivan, a global research and consulting organization, A4M/MMI has recently released an analysis on the potential growth opportunities in the anti-aging industry: Anti-Aging Therapies & Services Market—Trends & Growth Opportunities



Mark Houston, MD, MS, FACP, ABAARM, faculty member, nationally-recognized expert in cardiovascular health, and speaker at the upcoming Advanced Cardiology Module, explains his transition into Integrative Medicine:

“It was not recommended in medical school that you learn about vitamins, supplements, minerals…it was considered to be witch-craft. After I got into it and realized that this type of medicine was very valid and effective, I realized I needed to get trained. I needed to make this information clinically applicable—and show that what I do is cost-effective and keeps people well.”
