The South African Society of Integrative Medicine (SASIM) is a non-profit network of medical practitioners who support the practice of Functional and Integrative Medicine (IM). We exist to support like-minded health care providers in sharing knowledge, research and best-practices. We promote IM nationally by facilitating the advancement of science and research and providing advice on new policy. SASIM also provides the public with a national database of practitioners and helps to educate the general community on all matters regarding integrative medicine.
