True North is a 501(c)(3) non-profit doing medical research. Our aim is to prove that the True North integrative approach to health care works better than conventional medicine alone, that it makes patients healthier by emphasizing preventive health care and empowers patients to be more proactive in maintaining and improving their own health. Guidelines for patient management are an option meant to assist clinicians, but are not a requirement or a substitute for clinician judgment.
