The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has released a new report stating that the US should expand and promote whole health care through the leadership of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The report recommends creating a Federal Center for Whole Health Innovation to advance the use of evidence-based complementary and integrative health approaches, including yoga therapy, in mainstream healthcare.

This report highlights the growing importance of incorporating complementary and integrative health practices into traditional healthcare systems. Yoga therapy has been increasingly recognized as an effective tool for promoting physical, mental, and emotional health. Yoga teacher training programs are becoming more popular as more people are seeking yoga therapy to manage stress, anxiety, and other health issues.

Incorporating yoga therapy and other complementary and integrative health practices into mainstream healthcare can provide patients with more holistic care options. This can lead to better health outcomes and a reduction in healthcare costs. The report emphasizes the need for leadership from the VA and HHS to make this shift towards whole health care.

In summary, this report emphasizes the importance of expanding and promoting whole health care through the integration of complementary and integrative health practices, including yoga therapy. It recommends the creation of a Federal Center for Whole Health Innovation to advance the use of these evidence-based approaches in mainstream healthcare. This highlights the growing demand for yoga teacher training programs and other complementary and integrative health practices as people seek more holistic healthcare options.
