Traditional Doctors, Alternative Treatments: An Intersection?

Choose meditation not medication

Sometimes it can seem as though complementary/alternative treatments and traditional medicine live in two silos -- never the twain shall meet, as the saying goes. We go to the doctor when we're sick or for regular wellness checks. And we go to the yoga studio or a meditation class. Yet we don't talk to our doctors about how one can support the other.

But the tide may be turning -- a recent study in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine has found that three percent of people seeking out mind/body treatments, such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, are doing so based on a referral from a medical provider.

Amazing Goldie Hawn: Daily meditation settles my mind, body

Goldie Hawn Daily Meditation

Goldie Hawn might be one of the most youthful 67-year-olds on the planet! Her personality is bubbly, her body is rockin' and her head-to-toe style rivals most women half her age. So, what's her secret? A good diet and solid exercise routine are part of her age-defying plan, she reveals to Prevention magazine. "I do try to do some form of exercise 4 days a week. At home in California, I'll bike up the mountain. Or I'll do Pilates or Spin. And I do eat a lot of greens. I eat healthy, but I'm not a vegetarian."
