Care for the future
The practice of Integrative Medicine
In the autumn of 1999, the first edition of the magazine Supplement was published. The publication was an integral part of new developments within the healthcare system, as it aimed to unite general medical practice with complementary medical care. Over the past years, concepts such as Integrative Medicine and CAM (Complementary Alternative Medicine) have become more known and the magazine has grown accordingly.
Around the publication Supplement an organisation of the same name developed. It focuses on integrating medical practices through consulting, publishing magazines and books, and organising courses and congresses. To celebrate its tenth anniversary Supplement has organised the Congress ‘Care for the Future’ which will focus on Integrative Medicine.
Mischa Nagel, director Supplement:
“Our first magazine was called Supplement because it functioned as an appendix to the existing knowledge on how to be healthy. In the past years we have developed new activities around the journal, such as courses and consultancy. All our activities have the same goal, that is to bring general medical practice and complementary medicine closer together. We try to reach that goal by sharing knowledge and information on different methods of treatment.
In addition we aim to demonstrate to physicians that complementary medicine really does have scientific grounding. We want to take away prejudice and fear of the unknown, promote discussion and above all create trust.
Our information services clearly differentiate between complementary and alternative medicine. ‘Alternative’ indicates that medicine is practiced instead of general medical practice, and that is something we are not involved in. We prefer to leave that area to others.”
The congress is meant for healthcare professionals. They can be regular and complementary doctors and therapists, representatives of social organizations, health insurance companies, scientists, politicians and everyone who is interested in Integrative Medicine.

Complementary therapies do nut cure cancer, but they help counter the side effects of regular medical treatment and aim to give the patient an optimal constitution. Only complementary therapies that have been clinically proven are offered at MSKCC. Dr. Cassileth is permanently investigating in this field.
Prof. dr. Edzard Ernst holds the Laing Chair in Complementary Medicine at the University of Exeter. He has conducted a significant amount of research into the efficacy, safety and cost of Complementary Medicine within the parameters of regular evidence-based medicine. The (lack of) scientific evidence is a central theme in his work. He gained praise as well as criticism from both sides of the field. Last year he published the book ‘Trick or Treatment’, in which he puts complementary medicine to the test. Quack medicine is also a recurring theme in his work and often he makes the headlines with his remarks.
Dr. Mary Dyson is an internationally respected researcher and biomedical consultant who is predominantly occupied with researching the effect of light on pain management and wound healing. She has done ground-breaking research on the effect of laser in these processes.
Dyson has a long and distinguished career in advanced medical technology and shares her knowledge through hundreds of medical publications, international speaking engagements and consulting for medical companies and clinics. As a pioneer in the field of Low Level Laser Therapy, Dyson is a highly respected authority.
His years of experience in healthcare both as a doctor and a manager, have given Paul Kaiser a broad perspective. He developed a new vision for the future of healthcare in the Netherlands, including complementary medicine. As chairman of the KNMG district VI Rotterdam Kaiser was co-initiator of the congress Fusion (2006). This congress aimed to start up an open and scientific dialogue between general medical practice and complementary medical care. He is also starting up a new Dutch foundation for the advancement of Integrative Medicine, which aims to stimulate scientific research, education and information services in this field.
David Kopsky studied medicine at the VU University in Amsterdam, where his interest went out towards neuroanatomy. Later he specialised in acupuncture and hypnotherapy. His field of research consists of bladder dysfunction in MS patients and immunosurgical interventions for treating metastasized tumours.
He is a physician at ORES, in Soest, the Netherlands, where he mainly focuses on neuro acupuncture and treats people who suffer from chronic pain, such as neuropathy.
Kopsky is one of the co-founders of the IOCOB foundation, which focuses on collecting and structuring scientific information on disciplines of complementary therapies.
