Have you ever wanted to see a doctor and have him/her prescribe ginger mint tea rather than stool softener? Or echinacea (immune booster) tincture when you feel a cold coming on rather than wait for it to get worse and then have to resort to antibiotics? How about cleaning out the colon to improve overall health just by eating differently?
In this day and age where it is more and more difficult to even get health insurance, it is increasingly important to learn how to take care of oneself the natural way by building up immunity and balancing diet and excercise.
This article is a call for help to list all the integrative medicine practitioners in the local NYC area.
We need to be taken care of the right way if and when we need to see a doctor these are the doctors that think outside the box. Normal MD’s (or allopathic practitioners) did not learn about diet or herbs as medicine in medical school. But the ones who did, the ones who decided “there’s got to be more than just pill pushing in this medical BUSINESS I am in”, the ones who did….those are the ones that really care about well being of their patients. Not to forget that this is a business, I suggest to everyone to empower yourself with the knowledge of what works for you! Everyone is different. The good thing about herbs is that experimentation is not usually dangerous and a little trial and error can lead to a lifetime of healing practices. I love to grow my own medicine.
“My food is my medicine and my medicine is my food.”
That being said, there are times when that is not enough and I need a medical practitioner to use their professional guidance to help and heal. I have yet to find that doctor I can count on. I am determined to see who is out there so I am compiling a list here of doctors in the Long Island/New York City Area who practice integrative medicine, for that is where the evolution must go. I hope this list can help even one person to find help that can last a lifetime. If you know of a doctor to add the the list, comment it below or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
