Speaking Point: Western medicine is stuck back in 1950s mentality. It took decades for society to accept that the world was round and the same learning curve is taking place in our consciousness when it comes to alternative health therapies. Just a few years ago Western medicine called Chiropractic care a fad and dangerous and even more recently acupuncture was proven by the Western establishment to be useless
Speaking Point: Alternative medicine focus on the root cause of a problem while Western medicine treats the symptoms.
Speaking Point: The compassion of alternative medicine needs to combine with the aggression of Western therapies to create a holistic view of the patient.
Speaking Point: Western medical doctors often call alternative practitioners "Kooks" while alternative health practitioners call Western medical doctors butchers.
Speaking Point: If alternative medicine therapies are really "in your head" then why does a treatment work for one illness but not another? if it was just the placebo affect then we would all be cured of everything that ills us.
