Journal of Integrative Cardiology (JIC) is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal interested in attracting high-quality original research and reviews that present or highlight significant advances involving cardiovascular system and related regulatory organ systems. The Journal is concerned with basic, translational and clinical research, across different disciplines and areas, enhancing insight in understanding, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Journal of Integrative Cardiology (JIC) welcomes submission of papers both at the molecular, subcellular, cellular, organ, and organism level, and of clinical proof-of-concept and translational studies. The main commitment of the Journal is to encourage research in non conventional therapies, like nutrition, low dose therapy, botanicals, metabolic cardiology, acupuncture, Psycho-Neuro-Endocrine-Immunology (PNEI), immunomodulation through the intervention on microbioma, complementary therapy of low grade chronic inflammation.

The Psycho-Neuro-Endocrine-Immunology concepts result in a change of perspective, from a separatist point of view to an unifying one, relating to the interpretation of the biological functions of the body. A key point is the recognition of the importance of continuous cross-talk between cells, organs and systems in both physiological and pathological conditions based on the fine regulation of the levels of a large number of messenger molecules.

Interpreting the pathological phenomenon as an imbalance in intercellular signaling, the administration of low physiological doses of messenger molecules (which act as homeostatic modulating agents) can be considered an intriguing and innovative approach in order to restore the correct intracellular signaling and consequently to restore healthy conditions; these concepts are the milestones of Low Dose Medicine.

Integrative cardiology emphasizes the mind-body connection, and the evidence that depression, anxiety, and stress are not only risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease, but lead to adverse outcomes, including cardiac death and disease progression. Techniques that deals with depression, anxiety, and stress using stress management programs, relaxation therapy, and physical activity, are therapies that can be as effective as drugs in some patients. As prevention is the cornerstone of integrative medicine we highlights powerful opportunities afforded by nutritional approaches, lifestyle changes, and supplements, combined with conservative use of medication. The importance of evaluation for inherited risk factors that go beyond traditional ones is a corner stone of integrated cardiology. Journal of Integrative Cardiology (JIC) provides an important forum for exchange of ideas, concepts and findings in any area of cardiovascular system and related regulatory organ systems in a vision in which many medical conditions like hypertension, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, and cardiac surgery can benefit from an olistic approach.

Manuscripts may be submitted as original articles, rapid and short communications, or reviews, mini-review, case reports, opinion, letters to the editor and editorials. Journal of Integrative Cardiology (JIC) is proud of its fast Reviewing and Editorial Decision system. Manuscripts are normally evaluated by three members from an international panel of reviewers and, in most cases; we provide a first editorial decision within 21 days of receipt.

JIC welcomes direct submissions of manuscripts from authors. You can submit your manuscript to: submissions@ai-zheng.info alternatively to: editor.jic@ai-zheng.info
