"Andrew Thomas Weil" is an American medical doctor, teacher, and best-selling author on holistic health. He is founder, professor, and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. He received a B.S. in Biology and a M.D. from Harvard University in 1968. Weil is widely known for establishing the field of integrative medicine, which aims to combine alternative medicine/alternative and evidence based medicine/conventional medicine. Weil suggests that patients take the Western medicine prescribed to them by doctors and then incorporate Alternative medicine/alternative therapies, such as omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, herbal remedies, meditation, as well as other “spiritual” strategies, into their treatment plans. Some mainstream medical professionals, however, have criticized Weil for rejecting aspects of evidence-based medicine and promoting unverified beliefs.

Weil appeared on the cover of Time Magazine in 1997 and again in 2005. He has written many books and has sold over 10 million copies. Some titles of such books Spontaneous Healing, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, and Healthy Aging. Weil has been a frequent guest on Larry King Live, The Oprah Winfrey Show/Oprah, and the Today (U.S. TV program)/Today Show.
