Mainstream Meets Alternative
I have a broad-based knowledge of the Alternative/Complementary Health Care field and am receptive to listening to your treatment and preventative care suggestions. I will do my best to integrate your suggestions where possible with mainstream allopathic medicine. Many times I will have my own ideas of integration which I will share with you. I do not pretend to be an expert in any one field of Alternative Health Care. Referrals to Wholistic Practitioners will be provided where and when they seem appropriate.
First Do No Harm
My philosophy is to blend Alternative/Complementary Care with mainstream Allopathic Medicine only if I am convinced of the safety of the treatment/preventative option and ONLY if the plan does not deny mainstream care essential to the health of the individual.
