Integrative medicine is the combination of the practices and methods of complementary and alternative medicine with conventional medicine. Patients refer to it as “thinking out of the box” and having “an open mind” regarding their condition. Conventional medicine alone has often failed to heal patients suffering from chronic or more complex diseases. It also discourages the practitioner and the patient from using therapies based on clinical evidence or sometimes using intuitive intelligence rather than strictly the pharmaceutical industry sponsored research and FDA endorsed medicines.
The AIM Center offers the highest quality of integrative medicine that is inspired by Dr Revici’s groundbreaking medical principles and incorporates other therapeutic modalities proven effective in difficult to treat conditions. The Center is under the medical direction of Radu Kramer M.D., a board-certified internist and nephrologist (kidney specialist) who works along with a team of experienced and highly motivated certified practitioners.
After completing his medical training at Mount Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Kramer was in charge of the Outpatient Clinic at Keller Army Hospital at West Point Military Academy for five years and is currently affiliated with Hackensack University Medical Center and several dialysis units. Dr. Kramer has worked closely with Dr. Emanuel Revici, his great uncle, a well-established pioneer and medical researcher who’s thinking has been ahead of his time, as current developments in medicine are revealing. Dr. Revici has developed nontoxic and effective therapies for cancer, viral diseases, autoimmune diseases and addictions, which continue to improve the quality of life for many patients.
Dr. Kramer strongly advises any patient diagnosed with a malignancies (cancer) or other difficult to treat diseases, to be evaluated by at least one conventional oncologist or a qualified conventional physician and, whenever possible, obtaining a second opinion. The most important reason for this recommendation is the fact that there are more forms of cancer that respond well to conventional treatments and there are newer therapies available for other serious conditions. It is helpful for the patients to come to the AIM Center more prepared and with a significant part of the diagnostic work up completed.
