"From an integrative medicine approach, we're always looking at simple, low-tech, non-invasive
ways of improving health. An obvious area in which to concentrate is designing really comfortable,
effective footwear that can enable people to have an active lifestyle." – Andrew Weil, M.D.
Andrew Weil, M.D., is an internationally recognized leader and pioneer in the field of integrative
medicine, a healing-oriented approach to health care, which encompasses body, mind and spirit.
He has an A.B degree in biology (botany) from Harvard College and an M.D. from Harvard Medical
School. Dr. Weil recommends Vionic's innovative approach to foot health which aligns with his
philosophy of health and well-being from head to toe. Dr. Weil advocates walking as one of the
best forms of exercise and recognizes that when your feet are in pain, you are less likely to be
active. Therefore, the need for supportive shoes and inserts is essential.
