However, modern medicine has been less successful at treating chronic health issues. This fact explains the resent popularity of Complimentary or Alternative Medicine (CAM). Many CAM philosophies support the idea that the body, mind, and spirit among other aspects of life must be imbalance with themselves as well as each other for true health and wellness to be present. Therefore, a holistic approach to health and wellness is necessary to achieve it.
Many of the staff and writers for Wellness for the Rest of Us are medical professionals who write from their experience with patients. However, we also recognized that if those licensed professions were solving all our member’s health concerns you would not be here. With that in mind, we provide clinical research when available, but also acknowledge many CAM and energy focused solutions are not able to be tested by Western standards and provide traditionally accepted explanations of results. We know they work even if Western medicine doesn’t understand why.
