Alternative Health Practices Popular with Medical Professionals
Alternative health and medicine continues gaining ground among physicians and other practitioners of “traditional” medicine. (We could argue that alternative health practices ARE traditional medicine, but that’s a post for another day.) Even medical schools are adding alternative practices to the curriculum. US News reports:
Interest in teaching alternative approaches “has exploded, especially this last year,” says Laurie Hofmann, executive director of the Institute for Functional Medicine, which is based in Gig Harbor, Wash.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports on Dr. Joalie Davie, a former emergency physician who moved to Santa FE and opened a practice where she combines standard and alternative health practices. Scientific studies as well as personal experience convinced Dr. Davie that alternative health practices work. Besides standard techniques Dr. Davie uses hypnosis, accupressure and other alternative therapies in her practice.
The Chicago Tribune tells us that according to one study published by Health Services Research 83 percent of doctors and nurses used some form af alternative health care. That number is higher than the 63 percent of the general population practicing those same methods!
No doubt medical professionals are embracing alternative health in numbers that are no less than stunning. How can you join in this wave?
