Alternative Medicine
The term “alternative medicine,” once controversial and now becoming more accepted, refers to physicians and other health practitioners who use modalities such as homeopathy, acupuncture, neurotherapy, chelation, and nutritional counseling in order to treat patients who have not responded to more general medical solutions. “Complementary medicine” and “holistic medicine” are two other terms used. This is a broad group, but if these practitioners have any thing in common, it is that they look to alternates to drugs and surgery when they treat their patients. No longer on the fringe of the health care system, more and more these methods are being covered by health insurance.
