Holistic Health is a collection of healing techniques which have diverged from the traditional medical model. It attempts to cure disorders in mind, body and spirit and to promote wholeness and balance in the individual. Examples are acupuncture, crystal healing, homeopathy, iridology, massage, various meditation methods, polarity therapy, psychic healing, therapeutic touch, reflexology, etc.
Do you or would you ever use any of these methods when modern medicine fails? Are these techniques your first option or one of last resort for you, and lastly, if you HAVE used any of them, did it actually work?

"I think may people are turning to these types of therapies because doctors are just so quick to throw drugs at your ailments and diseases and not get to the root of the problem to fix it."
Bingo! That's exactly why I use them! The only drugs I put in my body are synthroid, my blood pressure meds, and my cholesterol meds. I wouldn't even use those if I didn't have to. There just really isn't anything that will replace my thyroid though other than synthroid (and it's generics). There are ways to take care of many common illnesses, as well as things like ADHD. I was talked into trying that damned Ritalin for my ADHD a few years ago... no thanks that stuff's terrible. I use holistic things to help reign in my ADHD and I don't feel like a zombie all day.
