Culver City, CA – Visit the doctor for any ailment, and you’re likely to come out carrying a prescription for one or more pharmaceuticals or an appointment for surgery. But does this have to be the way? What about alternatives to conventional medicines? Don’t doctors today have a moral responsibility to discuss alternatives to pharmaceuticals or surgery, namely natural herbs and other remedies?
Doctors are in the business of helping patients remain as healthy as possible. By informing and educating doctors about alternatives to conventional medicine, those physicians will be better prepared to guide their patients to a broad range of available therapies.
Additionally, doctors will be able to distinguish between those treatments (or treatment combinations) that are helpful and those that could do a patient harm.
Educating today’s doctors about conventional medicine alternatives can assist physicians in helping patients overcome the symptoms associated with chronic disease like autoimmune disorders. The good news for patients is that many common disease conditions can be helped with alternatives to conventional medicine that are less expensive, safer, and sometimes more effective.
By increasing their knowledge of conventional medicine alternatives, doctors will begin practicing the lifestyle modifications like clean eating and toxin-free living that are usually associated with alternative medicine.
Physicians will not only relieve stress and become healthier, but they’ll be better role models for their patients. Patients, in kind, are more likely to adopt such lifestyle measures on their own.
Doctors these days could use a little stress relief, as the better they feel, the better care they will be able to provide for their patients.
Less Expensive and More Involved Care
With healthcare costs continuing to climb and with all the side effects associated with many conventional treatments, many patients are demanding alternatives to the traditional way of treating illness and disease.
A study recently published in the American Journal of Medicine stated that “Patients want physicians who have time to sit down with them and help them understand the nature of their problems and who will not just promote drugs and surgery as the only way of doing things.”
Proposed alternatives to conventional medicine that doctors could be mentioning include acupuncture/acupressure, aromatherapy, homeopathy, neuropathy, chiropractic care, biofeedback, reflexology, and Reiki.
Despite a growing desire for alternatives to conventional medicine, much work still has to be done. At the very least, introducing the subject may lead to discussion, which can eventually result in change.
Do doctors have a moral responsibility to promote alternatives to drugs and surgery? Absolutely. Hopefully, we will see more alternatives being mentioned by doctors the next time patients go in for an appointment.
