Always learn as much as possible about what conventional and alternative therapies can do for your medical problem before seeking treatment. Many people mistakenly believe that only one type of treatment will alleviate their medical problem. The reality is that each approach may have its merits and shortcomings.

Always weigh the risks and benefits of any treatment before you try it. Regardless of the type of therapy you choose keep in mind that every treatment carries potential risk including the most seemingly harmless treatments.

We can all take an active part in the maintenance of our health with the guidance of a health care professional.
