PUBLICATIONS THAT HAVE FEATURED CURACORE
To humanize medicine in order to improve patient outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and restore joy to the profession of caring for others.
To teach healthcare providers how, when, and why to include integrative medical options as first-line approaches alongside or instead of medications and surgery.
To encourage critical thinking, a scientific rationale, and a basis of evidence across the conventional - integrative healthcare continuum.
In the 1990’s, the Curacore Integrative Medicine & Education Centers serving both the US and Canada began. The President and CEO of CuraCore, Dr. Narda Robinson, first started her practice with osteopathic medicine. She then grew her career, adding veterinary medicine. Over the span of the next 20 years, Dr. Robinson used integrative medicine to treat both veterinary and human patients. At the same time, she taught and researched integrative medicine practices and principles at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. This enabled Dr. Robinson to develop a state-of-the-art method of practicing and teaching integrative medical treatments that trumped the mythical beliefs that have been referred to as holistic care. Rather than depending on unseen energies or mystic mechanisms in order to examine and seek out the merits of “alternative” medical treatments, she created methods and put together courses that had sound scientific foundations and were based on research. The platform of education for integrative medicine at CuraCore is significantly different from others in that it rests securely upon science. Our education also focuses on the need for veterinary healthcare providers to seek out other solutions that result in greater outcomes than can be expected with only drugs and surgery.
