HEALTH AND MEDICINE

Ask Dr Weil

The medical profession in the United States has long regarded alternative medicine with a certain degree of lofty scientific skepticism. The prevailing attitude seems to be that unless a drug or treatment has been run through the research and development mill run by the major universities, pharmaceutical companies and the Food and Drug Administration, it's probably not worth looking at.

The old attitude ignored the potential value of many drugs and treatments which have been around for years (in some cases for centuries), simply because the sources often lay beyond the borders of Western medicine. Many traditional Herbal remedies, for example, show remarkable success rates in combating modern problems like depression and work-related fatigue. Likewise, alternative treatments such as acupuncture and acupressure have shown great promise in helping the body heal itself and fend off illness, even though such methods often defy rational attempts at explanation.

A leading proponent of the movement for alternative medicine in the United States has been Dr. Andrew J. Weil, a graduate of Harvard Medical School, a respected lecturer and author of several best-selling books on the topic, including "Spontaneous Healing" and "Eight Weeks to Optimum Health".

Visitors to the Ask Dr. Weil web site will find plenty of food for thought, including information on the healing powers of many commonly available natural herbs, articles on spiritual approaches to healing such as meditation and useful tips on general health and wellness. The web has opened the floodgates for a great deal of disinformation about the strengths, weaknesses and dangers of natural medicines, often spread by unethical companies with no interest other than in pushing sales. It's good to know there is a reliable and respected source of information online.
