Description

Within the medial field, a large interest has been rising in the role of preventative medicine and alternative treatments in addition to traditional pharmacological approaches. A literature search of PsycINFO and Medline was performed on the role of physical activity, psychological interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness, and religion and culture in the primary care medical setting. All three of these approaches have been shown to have physical, mental, and economical benefits for patients and physicians alike. Barriers to increasing these three fields in the medical setting are discussed, along with suggestions for successful implementation for optimal patient centered care, health, and physician well-being.
