I’m interested to know what your general experiences have been. Have any of your doctors ever mentioned alternative treatments to you? I do realize that presenting alternative treatments, or any treatment option, has to be sensible for you, and that it may not even apply to your condition.
Answers may be significantly different depending on what country you live in. The definition of alternative medicine may even be different, but for the purposes of this poll, we’ll divide alternative medicine into three general categories, as used by Dr. Oz (see video in my earlier posting):
- Things you put in your mouth – herbs, supplements, foods
- Manual body manipulation like acupuncture, massage therapy, etc.
- Mind/Body connection – meditation, breathing exercises, etc.
