Health care focuses primarily on the treatment and prevention of specific diseases, while there are very few high-quality studies of the prevention of aging and the maintenance of high quality of life (or improvement) in healthy people. This review considers the most effective and evidence-based integrative medicine methods used in apparently healthy people for their health improvement.
