BONUS: FX MEDICINE PODCAST: Prof Marc Cohen and his journey to Integrative Medicine

Prof Marc Cohen has already had an illustrious career in integrative medicine and shows no sign of stopping! Prof Cohen is one of the co-authors of one of the principal integrative medicine textbooks "Herbs and Natural Therapies: An Evidence-Based Approach”. This book was voted in the top 4 resources for GPs to access unbiased information on natural therapies and is now in its 4th edition.

Prof Cohen's approach has always been to highlight the evidence for natural therapies and cement their place in medical practice for the purpose of improving patient outcomes above "standard care". Patients are actively seeking alternatives above or alongside "standard care” to prevent lacklustre results or harmful side-effects in many chronic degenerative conditions. Prof Cohen guides both patients and practitioners alike to safe, complementary therapies and balances the benefits with the risks.

In this podcast, as past-Australian Integrative Medicine Association (AIMA) president, Prof Cohen talks about the AIMA Conference 2015 and discusses the various topics which are a must-see for all integrative practitioners to deliver safe, effective and wholistic care.

Professor Marc Cohen is a registered medical practitioner with degrees in western medicine, physiology, psychological medicine and biomedical engineering. He is currently Chair of the Australasian Spa and Wellness Association, a Board Member and Past-President (from 2000-2007) of the Australasian Integrative Medicine Association (AIMA), a member of the RACGP-AIMA Joint Working party on Integrative Medicine and a Board Member of the Global Wellness Summit as well as sitting on the Editorial Board of a number of international journals.

Prof Cohen is extremely active in organising conferences on holistic and integrative medicine. He is also a sought after conference presenter and has been an invited speaker at more than 40 international and 60 national conferences in more than a dozen countries.

Prof Cohen is a regular media contributor. This includes articles in major Australian newspapers, appearances on ABC Radio National and many regional stations Australia-wide, and television appearances on ABC, SBS, Channel 7 and Channel 9 news, current affairs and lifestyle programs.
