"The history of science makes clear that the greatest advancements in man's understanding of the universe are made by intuitive leaps at the frontiers of knowledge, not by intellectual walks along well-traveled paths." — Andrew Weil, MD

Andrew Weil, MD

An internationally-recognized expert on integrative medicine, medicinal plants and mind-body interactions, Andrew Weil, MD, has devoted the past thirty years to developing, practicing, and teaching others about the principles of integrative medicine. Combining a Harvard medical education with the practice of natural medicine, Dr. Weil was one of the first physicians to articulate the principles of a medical system that sought to heal as well as treat; that encompassed body, mind, and spirit; and that honored and worked with the innate healing power of the organism.  He is the Founder and Director of the Program in Integrative Medicine (PIM) at the College of Medicine, University of Arizona, which is helping lead the transformation of healthcare by creating, educating, and actively supporting a community of professionals who embody the philosophy and practice of integrative medicine. His bestselling books - Spontaneous Healing, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, Eating Well for Optimum Health, and Healthy Aging, among others - have made a tremendous impact on the ways in which people view health and healing, and as a frequent guest on Larry King Live, Oprah, and The Today Show, Dr. Weil inspires millions of viewers with his messages on how to optimize the body's natural healing power. His website (wwwdrweil.com) and newsletter (Dr. Andrew Weil's Self-Healing) are popular with both health professionals and the general public.
