The healing body

For most people, a routine medical checkup can be an anxiety-ridden experience. Anticipating being told that something is "wrong" can conjure up stressful feelings. When a checkup comes back normal, we rejoice and, for the most part, continue life as usual. Lorne Swetlikoff, a Vancouver-based doctor of naturopathic medicine, says "normal" may not explain why we don't quite feel right and the absence of disease may not necessarily constitute good health.

Do you turn to alternatives when traditional medicine fails you?
