Founded in 2008, IRCM (International Group of Researchers and Development for Complementary Medicine Limited) associates health professionals.
The Group aims a wide public - researchers, doctors, scientists, therapists and whomever is interested.
IRCM International's focus is on spreading and giving access to research in the field of Integrative Medicine, to validate knowledge about certain plants and traditional pharmacopoeia preparations, and proposes alternative or complementary solutions where classical medicine encounters difficulties.
The group offices are:
• at Oxford Science Park (OSP) in England
• and at IRCM International in Lausanne, Switzerland.
kiu caracani , FOUNDER OF THE GROUP
Kiu Caracani, a specialist in Integrative Medicine, graduated from the Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital and from the Academic Hospital of Acupuncture and Tuina Zhejiang in China (TCM).
For many years, he followed the teachings of Master King, in Traditional Chinese Medicine and of Master Hiroshi Nozaki, in Shiatsu and Traditional Japanese Medicine.
Aware of the importance and benefits of disciplines such as phytotherapy, aromatherapy, homeopathy, micro-nutrition and massotherapy, Kiu Caracani also trained as a naturopath in Geneva.
The mastery of these "sister therapies" have allowed him to relieve and significantly improve patients' health suffering from degenerative and severe chronic diseases.
Kiu Caracani is a passionate researcher and founded the International Group of Researchers and Development for Complementary Medicine Limited (IRCM) in 2008 which he presides in Oxford.
His motto: Preserve and optimize the overall patient's health by harmonizing body and mind with deep respect of Nature's laws.
Despite Integrative Medicine being popular and known and accepted by people, research news in this field is not readily accessible to public- though research only helps validate our ancestral knowledge of certain plants or preparations.
More globally, research on Complementary Medicine helps it aquire a complete form and role alongside Allopathic Medicine
These two medicines ultimately pursue the same goal - cure human beings and help prevent diseases
We work keeping this in mind.
IRCM International has a variety of projects running through out the year and they include talks and website updates.
All these projects are aimed to increase awareness of the benefits in using Integrative Medicine for the treatment and prevention of illnesses.
