India is probably the birth place of Holistic Medicine and all branches of holistic medicine are widely practiced in India. The problem is that practitioners of some of these branches don’t disseminate the correct information about their branch and give false hope of cure to suffering patients.
During my medical career, I have come across many patients who have become a victim of such practice and have had to pay dearly for following these quacks. Personally, I feel that all branches have a role to play in today’s healthcare system, provided the practitioners know their limitations and they refer patients to the proper doctors, if the disease is beyond the scope of their branch.
In an effort to spread the right information about Holistic Medicine, we have started a new blog – The Holistic Rx. This website will feature articles pertaining to all branches of medicine and will be backed by scientific evidence.
