I’ve been seeing more and more positive media coverage on alternative medicine and natural living these days and it’s getting me excited! As alternative medicine is better understood, it becomes more accepted as a viable form of medicine and preventative health. Eventually, this means that insurance companies may begin covering services not typically considered “medically necessary” from the viewpoint of Western medicine. I am a firm believer that health is very personal.Therefore, every person ought to have choice when it comes to managing their health. It’s pretty exciting to see insurance companies beginning to add coverage for “alternative health” practices like preventative health, acupuncture, and mental health services. Eventually, I hope to see supplements and naturopaths fully covered as well.

Throughout this blog, I will be curating links on issues related to alternative medicine, health and wellness, nutrition, exercise and mental health. For example, I just came across this article today. It’s exciting to see the military incorporating acupuncture into treatments for anything ranging from back pain to PTSD.
