Alternative medicine

    Alternative medicine as opposed to Traditional medicine could be the trend in this modern era. Some of the traditions in relation to treatment of a certain disease could be catered according to the cellular system of an individual"s capacity to accept the particular therapeutic cure which could for example be like: accupunture needles done by Chinese Practitioners on certain Meridian Points of the body or maybe aromatheraphy in our modern Western Practice. Whereas in India,the practice of Ayurvedic Medicine is also widely accepted and Reiki,which originated from Korea is done by passing the hands vertically or horizontally without touching but could be otherwise be interpreted as magnetic healing following a pattern.
          These medical practices could lead to some cures because it causes healing partially or totally depending,as I said,on the response of the individual patient and the time involving the length of the therapy.
          The Advantage of these Alternative Medical practices could be attributed to less or absolutely without side effects in some But not all have total cures as some observers think.

    I have had ringing in my ears for a year or so and I'm taking an herbal cure but it's not doing much of anything. Will someone please answer that phone.

    Try a little massage behind the back of the left or the right ear where you hear the tingling sound you mentioned and also press up to 3 counts the back of the neck where the "medulla oblongata" is located.As I said this is not an instant cure but Accupressure could also help if done religiously,of course,by prayers. God hears our prayers.
    As the gospel quotes us:"Ask and you shall receive,Seek and you shall find,Knock and it shall be opened unto you". *A M E N*

      Thanks for the advice! I'll give my prayers a chance. I don't normally pray for me directly but enough ringing.

    Did you read the study that just came out that the PLACIBO is getting stronger. The greatest medicine is the human mind apparently

    I would like to suggest that we take a more "holistic" approach to medicine and healing. I obtained my medical education from a traditional medical college in the Midwestern United States from a medical college that stressed family practice. We were taught to care for our patients using an open mind and to bring all treatment  methodologies to the table, putting the well being of the patient to the fore front. We were taught to use traditional methods, alternative methods, or whatever methods that would, first of all, "do no harm to the patient, while, at the same time, healing the patient. I could say more about this but time and space is short. Dr. Haddox

      Hello Marcy-Lipton,
      It was 24 hours ago when you posted your question, asking if there was "any information on a holistic approach to Rosacea?" The answer is yes. There are physicians, doctors, called Naturopathic physicians, who promote and practice naturopatthic treatments for rosacea. Actually, these naturopathic medical doctors are very good at helping you to manage the signs and symptoms fo rosacea. Rosacea is a systemic disease, or condition, that affects the whole body, so it must be managed in such a way that it helps to restore the whole body to a normal state of health.
      I will recommend a couple of websites for you to refer to in order to see how naturopathic medicine works. These are just easy sites to help you see how holistic medicine works.
      The sites are: drjoeross.com/natural_healing/acne_rosacea.htm
      This is not very much for you to read, just to get you started.
      I hope that this helps you.
      If you need more information. Let me know.
      Dr. Haddox

    I used to be severely allergic to gluten, moderately allergic to dairy, and slightly allergic to many other things.

    Now, I'm not allergic to any of them.

    All thanks to NAET, and about $250 of treatments. I know western medicine has its place, but too often it focuses on symptoms and not causes.
