I am not advocating DR. treatments I am advocating for educating patients on things like healing touch, guided image (etc) , holistic nutrition, sunlight, water, natural foods native to each area, organics, feng shui, etc. Those types of things are what I am referring to. None of those things can hurt someone (unless someone lets say is a former rad therapy patient going to Hawaii and not using sunblock/big smile). Those are interventions that won't hurt anyone. I am not advocating coffee ground enemas, colonics or anything of that nature. For things of that nature I would certainly want some information relative to outcomes but I think that many other cultures have some tried and true herbal possibilities western medicine foo foos as not even an option. I guess my idea that I am trying to foster is for people of western medicine thoughts to at least read a book or two on other medical foundations that are centuries old and try some of the things they have to offer, on yourself. See if anything like a day on the beach, camping or even something as simple as following some feng shui suggestions or principals makes a difference.
All I am saying is be open to other ideas..........be open for not only your patient but to grow yourself as a practioner and a human. You might find a way to help your patients or yourself that everyone else missed.
Good conversation. Posts and emails make things hard to relay at times.

They could be harmful if advocated instead of more effective treatment, but I'm willing to accept that a licensed health pro would use good judgement about that. Or at least that if they did not they would be procecuted.
On the subject of professional good judgment, did you see that the minister of health of some African nation, it may have been South Africa, is advocating raw garlic and lemon skins as a cure for HIV? I believe you are supposed to eat the raw garlic and rub the lemons on your skin. Sort of AIDS salad dressing.

Thanks for conversing!

I just joined and saw your post
I am a homeopath (certified classical homeopath) and use homeopathy all the time at work in L&D as well as my private practice.
It is a wonderful system of medicine that has been available to us for over two hundreds years and there are many studies proving its efficacy. It works very well for our women in labor, who love a natural safe modality.
