The Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine (AARM) is a non-profit medical association which supports cross-disciplinary learning and collaboration in the use of herbal, nutritional, and hormone medicines. AARM’s focus is on providing medical education about endocrine system disorders, with an emphasis on therapeutic approaches for treating hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, adrenal dysfunction, and dysglycemia, as well as male and female hormonal imbalances. We also provide protocols and scientific information to physicians for using Restorative Medicine to treat chronic diseases, including digestive, respiratory, nervous, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and autoimmune diseases.

AARM’s education for health care professionals occurs through several channels. Each year, hundreds of physicians and other health care providers attend our conferences in the U.S. and Canada. AARM also publishes the peer-reviewed Journal of Restorative Medicine (JRM). Continuing medical education credits are available for most of our educational products.

AARM certifies health care practitioners in specific Restorative Medicine therapies. For example, providers who attend the T3 certification courses at our conferences can take an online exam and become certified in T3 therapy. By providing education from leading experts, clinical research, and cutting-edge protocols, AARM is empowering physicians to more effectively treat their patients and build their practices through the use of herbal, nutritional, and natural hormone medicines.

What Is Restorative Medicine?

Restorative Medicine focuses on the importance of a balanced endocrine system through recognizing how the different chemical messengers influence each other. Stabilizing the endocrine system as a whole, rather than treating a single individual hormone, helps to optimize health and promote longevity. The ultimate goal of Restorative Medicine is to reduce or eliminate the need for ongoing medical treatment, when possible, by truly restoring health at its core.
