GENERAL HEALTH

Complementary Medicine is growing at a phenomenal rate. More and more people are deciding to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. They are realising that there is a world of difference between optimal health and just the absence of disease. Many are understandably concerned about drug side effects and hospital 'superbugs'. However, a more natural approach to health is no longer just for the hippies - medical research is proving that Nature may know a thing or two!

Reframing the Wellbeing Debate: it's political not scientific

Article by William Bloom - published in the Journal of Holistic Health, May 2010

SUMMARY
Holistic health practitioners know that an essential part of wellbeing is our connection with the wonder and energy of nature and all life. But they are often excluded from mainstream medicine due to accusations of ‘bad science’ especially when mentioning energy, qi or prana.
