This course is an exploration of the anatomy and physiology of the human body from an integrative and holistic perspective. Anatomy refers to the structure of the body, while physiology refers to the function of these anatomical structures. Our explorations of these disciplines will encompass detailed study of each body system with attention to the interconnectedness of systems. This course will provide a basic understanding of anatomy and physiology as they relate to wellness, illness, and the care of the patient in Western and non-Western medical paradigms such as Biomedicine, Naturopathic Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Herbalism. Students will be encouraged to integrate their understanding of the relationships between body, mind, and spirit throughout the course. Priority to IHL students
