Even medical students want conventional medicine to include alternative therapies

Even medical students want conventional medicine to include alternative therapies

From Natural News


"According to research published in the online edition of the peer-reviewed journal Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine (eCAM), 75 percent of medical students surveyed think it would be beneficial for conventional Western medicine to integrate with complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). CAM places emphasis on natural therapies and using the body's own healing powers instead of relying on drugs, vaccines and other standard Western treatments."

Good for them! In a world in which Big Pharma reigns supreme, it is really tough going for aspiring doctors to incorporate Integrative Medicine. We are all glad times are a-changing and a shift in thought seems to be in place. Toss those pills.

Not so fast, please. We must treat the subject with utmost subriety. When the time comes, touch wood, when we should need the help of conventional medicine, make no mistake, the best course of action is to seek help.

You should never sit idly by and wait for a condition to worsen in hopes, perhaps vain at times, that it will vanish all on its own. It may, really. We do know our bodies, like the gods, work in mysterious ways. While we know that our thoughts might influence enzymes at a cellular level, it is all to our advantage to garner all sorts of information about a particular condition and do our best to get rid of it.

Meanwhile, let us all follow those age-old snippets of wisdom we have been hearing for decades and let us not overdo on anything suspiciously noisome to our bodies. You get the message?
