Why Alternative Medicine and Why Now?: A Primer on Holistic Medicine

Front Cover
Trafford Publishing, 2002 - Health & Fitness - 98 pages

Why Alternative Medicine and Why Now? tells of how our society has progressed through a series of decisions that have resulted in the polarization of all aspects of our perception of reality. We have fragmented our lives & created this chaotic culture; w/c we have come to love & despise.. Unless we can understand what has happened then we will not be able to find the way to correct our problems. Despite our elaborate technology, physical illness is still rampant. We have managed to disrupt our spiritual, mental & emotional health, too. We do have diagnostic aids & therapies that seem almost miraculous, yet we do not have optimal health. Many people have material success but are not happy. Frustration, confusion & depression are prevalent. We have not only systematically fragmented our society but have also fragmented ourselves into many sub- specialties. Healing consists of identifying the pieces we have fabricated & putting ourselves and our world back together. Becoming healthy consists of becoming whole again!
If all were well with our system then there would be little interest in alternative therapies. It's as if, intuitively we know that some key fundamentals that were known in the past, are missing & have probably been discarded. If it weren't for the mixing of eastern & western cultures, we would not have been able to see our way back to a more holistic view of health. Unless we openly acknowledge our spiritual side; & insist that we take it into our daily activities, then the reality of spirit will repeatedly be denied because of our scientific process. I humbly offer this theory as a framework to help us restore the missing ingredients so that we will be able to approach the future with optimism & joy.
