Alternative Healing

Amanda gave the class today on Alternative Healing because she knows way more about it than I do. Next week, I have one or two guest speakers coming in to talk about Reiki and Therapeutic Touch. Thanks be to Roo and Meri!

As we discussed the different types of healing methods, I was reminded of the following passage I saw somewhere on the Web:

The History of Medicine:
2000 B.C. - Here, eat this root.
1000 A.D. - That root is heathen. Here, say this prayer.
1850 A.D. - That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
1940 A.D. - That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
1985 A.D. - That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
2002 A.D. - That antibiotic doesn't work any more - here, eat this root.

Good news! One of my students came back, so we're back up to 3 students! Welcome back Astra!

People nowadays are more health conscious than ever. We value our health so much that we coudnt afford to risk taking uncertain medications.

But there a current fad that spreads acress the western countries, the Homeopathy. These alternative medical practices are considered safe just like aromatheraphy. Aside from those mentioned drinking tea and gensing are also considered effective as it has been practiced by the asian for centuries.
