Doctor Oz says that 40% of American adults have tried alternative medicines and $34 billion are spent on herbs, yoga and alternative medicine options. How did this alternative medicine enthusiasm begin? When American journalist James Reston was in China, he had an emergency operation and was in so much pain that he was willing to try just about anything. Reston tried acupuncture, which worked so well that he brought it back to America, along with an interest in alternative medicines.
Dr. Oz brought three alternative medicine pioneers on his show: Kathy Freston author of Quantum Wellness Cleanse: The 21-Day Essential Guide to Healing Your Mind, Body and Spirit, Joseph Mercola author of The No-Grain Diet and Deepak Chopra, author of Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You. Make sure to read the articles on Kathy Freston, Joseph Mercola and Deepak Chopra, because they have some great tips and advice for all of us!
