I wrote about how prayer is looked upon as an effective part of the healing process, titled "Is Prayer for Healing Effective?" Here is a link to the hub: http://marleneb.hubpages.com/t/325816
MarleneB, this Hub is positively stellar. What a fantastic overview you've given- and I like how you're not preachy about it; you just provide a sound, compassionate introduction and useful information. The layout, links, image, and videos compliment your text splendidly. Brava.
My favorite medical treatment of all time! http://austinstar.hubpages.com/hub/Mass … e-Medicine
This looks like a fun theme. I'm really into alternative medicine...I'm going to see if I can "conjure" up a hub or two on this theme. Thanks for the idea!
How timely this is for me! I just had my first acupuncture treatment last week!
I just tweeted this thread. Watch the new writers roll in...
Here's a new writer! LOL My first attempt at writing to a given topic in the Weekly Inspiration Hub, and my second Hub post. I chose Hypnotherapy as it has helped me immensely, and the brain fascinates me. Here is the link: http://dianals516.hubpages.com/t/325f75
Criticism welcome - be gentle. ;-)
Alternative Therapies fascinate me too! I can easily write at least half a dozen Hubs on the topic without stressing my brain. I have never written a Hub based on Weekly Topic Inspiration so far, so this would be my first attempt.
I have already written many hubs on chakras. So I picked the topic 'Chakra Healing: Does it Work?' so that I could link to my existing Hubs.
http://anamikas.hubpages.com/hub/chakra … gnificance
What an amazing discovery for me. I've never heard of Chakra Healing and Balancing Meditation until now. The video is the perfect accompaniment. I am so glad I read your hub - very valuable to me.
I published another Hub on Top 10 Complementary and Alternative Medicine Therapies that work ( http://anamikas.hubpages.com/hub/Comple … difference) giving the meaning and difference of CAM and types.
I am also in. This topic is surely a comeback for me. I have written 100 hubs on alternative/natural medicine at Hubpages. Now it's the time to write more as these hubs are converting well for me and are the highest earners for my amazon account.
Thanks so much for the topic, here's my latest hub.
Light Therapy for SAD
Oops looks like my link didn't work
http://sherryhewins.hubpages.com/hub/Li … py-for-SAD
Good coverage of this form of alternative treatment. The pluses and minuses are good to know - very helpful.
You did a great job helping us understand SAD and the treatments involved in controlling this condition.
Dr. Oz always discusses alternatives.
My opinion............the f.d.a. allows prescription medications to be approved and the doctor's push them on patients. The kickbacks provided for prescribing drugs happens wrecklessly and usually ends up causing another negative effect in your body. Then you are given a prescription for that problem, and the scenario continues.
Unfortunately very few doctors say hey, let's watch your cholesterol or loose weight and change diet to try and help you get off diabetes medication.
The food is filled with preservatives and hormone's to speed up production. Cancer seems to be taken over the country and the drugs, surgeries,and treatment centers continue to grow.
Nature provides all remedies.
Thanks for the inspiration again. Here is my hub on Crystal Healing for Pain Relief http://daisydayz.hubpages.com/hub/Alter … al-Healing
It has made me think I could do a whole series around it as it is something I have been really interested in for years. Thanks - maybe keep an eye out for more tied into this one!
Hello! I finally posted mine...thanks for visiting! ^_^

I just finished my hub about Light Therapy for SAD Disorder. Did know that someone already had this topic http://kelleyward.hubpages.com/hub/Ligh … order?done
I wrote about Reiki. My Mother in Law practices it and really swears by it!

I am probably one of the few people who runs away from natural and alternative medicine! I'm not sure why...
Natural and alternative medicine is more frequently about how to keep the body well. If you are interested in maintaining a healthy body and methods of doing so, then understanding the reasons why you are running the other direction may be of importance for you.
I have always been interested in the more mainstream alternative or complementary medicines, so I gave a brief description of them, trying to explain what each therapy believes.

I just Published a hub on " Benefits and Drawbacks of Alternative Treatments"
