Patients can use the links below to locate doctors who have training in integrative medicine.
While doctors with training in integrative medicine will likely be open to discussing alternative therapies with IBD patients, please do not assume that every practitioner will be well-versed on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet™ or any of the other tools recommended on FoodRx.org (mind-body therapies, exercise, mindfulness meditation, etc.).
We advise printing materials out in advance to share with your doctor during your appointment. Remember, the more research you do on the front end, the more confident and capable you will feel when discussing your options with your doctor. And that is what this website is for!
