When Your Doctor is Aware of the Benefit of Alternative Medicine You May Live Longer

A Dutch study examined the benefits to patients of having physicians who were aware of alternative therapies, such as acupuncture and herbology. It found that patients had,

0-30% lower healthcare costs and mortality rates, depending on age groups and type of CAM [Complementary/Alternative Medicines]. The lower costs result from fewer hospital stays and fewer prescription drugs.

 At the Northside Holistic Center we certainly find that our patients will often need to use few drugs.
