Your Doctor Knows

An new study shows that physician and nurses (and other healthcare personal) use more alternative methods than the general population.

Uh? Seems your doctor knows more than she lets on to you.

Why are physicians not generally using more alternative methods for their patients if they have found out that they work for themselves and their families?

Time! It takes much more time to discuss better nutrition, movement, herbs, acupuncture, cold water, relaxation techniques, yoga, meditation, sleep hygiene and many more than just handing out a prescription.

You might improve your own healthcare if you initiate a talk with your doctor, asking for alternatives before taking a pill mindlessly (but mind that sometimes the pill might be the right answer for your problem - let's not throw out the baby with the bathwater; we needs both sides of medicine!).

Just ask a simple question like this: "What would you do, if it were you, Doc?"
