This is such a huge area to get into. Suffice to say that over the last 15 years alternative / complementary therapy has grown to world-wide acceptance as an aid or means to healing people. Combined with the very impersonal allopathic health-care it can work wonders for many people. It is not about “either or”, it is about “and”. Alongside with aggressive methods to combat disease alternative / complementary therapies can heal a person on many levels. Changing body-parts or aggressively attacking a tumor or virus is not a guarantee for survival or healing. We are so much more than only our bodies; as I have said before – we are intrinsically interconnected body and mind. Healing is needed on all levels.
