That : That is a difficult question to answer, as it can apply to so many conditions. In the case of a medical emergency, it seems to have to trust to the care of the doctor or health care provider who is available to you. For more chronic conditions, i suggest you listen carefully to your (conventional) doctor's advice, and if you have any reservations, or feel that you are not getting well, consult with other types of healthcare providers. There are many medical traditions besides the conventional prescription pharmaceutical medications that are so often prescribed by most american physicians: there is oriental medicine which has been practiced and refined over 3000 years, and indian (ayurvedic) medicine that is equally based on thousands of years of practice. There are also western herbal traditions, body therapies and natural medicine practitioners. The bottom line, is, it's your choice and no one will prevent you from getting a second or third opinion from alternative healthcare practitioners. Then you can weigh the information and recommendations you receive, discuss with family or friends, and use your own "gut" feeling about what would work best or makes them most sense for you.

I hope that is helpful. I have written a book entitled "renegade patient", which discusses at great length the various alternative health care you might find and information about the training and skills of different types of healthcare providers. You can find it on online bookstores like amazon.Com

kind regards,

Alan Carr's easy way to stop smoking helped me n my wife quit smoking. But she is addicted to drinking daily. Is 3 glasses of red wine too much for he?

Try his book for it: If you both were pleased with his help on smoking, continue with his ideas on alcohol. Why switch from a winning strategy? The size of the glass matters of course and the issue of compulsion does too. So does her size, activity level, consumption w/ food, etc. But read his book - it's available to buy online.
