USA: Who Uses Alternative Medicine? Healthcare Workers.

Posted on August 21, 2011


USA: Interesting story this week in Health Behavior News. Turns out that 76% of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers use CAM (complimentary and alternative medicine) compared to 63% of workers in the general population. So, what are we to learn from this? Those who work in Western Medicine know its limitations. They know that outside emergency medical intervention, there are other options available. Those options are often safer, more effective, less costly, and pose fewer side effects than the options offered by industrialized medicine. Patients take note. There’s a lesson here. Thanks to Milly Dawson for this report.
