Broader access to more and (sometimes) better health care information, thanks to an explosion of media attention and now, of course, the Internet. Look up your symptoms, and find answers without having to step foot in a clinic.
An increase in the number of people with chronic health problems-such as fibromyalgia, allergies, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, and various autoimmune disorders-and their inability to find adequate or lasting relief from symptoms through conventional medical treatment.
A search for more effective pain control techniques, minus the side effects that frequently accompany prescription medications, not to mention getting addicted to prescription medications.
An increasing dissatisfaction with the hurried, impersonal approach that characterizes much of health care delivery today. Under managed care, a visit to your doctor's office might involve just 10 minutes with your primary-care physician, barely enough time to do anything more than diagnose and treat you immediate symptoms. Which usually results in your doctor prescribing some kind of synthetic drug with awful side effects!
An ever-increasing interest in disease prevention, wellness strategies, and the quest for optimal health-exactly those areas where complementary medicine can deliver the greatest benefits for your well-being.
