What happens at the interface of mind and body is arguably one of the most exciting and profound areas of health and life today, as it has been through the millennia. Not by accident have ancient disciplines including yoga, Qi Gong, and Chinese medicine, focussed so profoundly upon both body and mind, with the recognition that unhappiness, anger, fear and shock may be at the root of many physical diseases.

There are so many modalities by which people can be treated and healed. This is a central truism emerging in this issue, so elegantly put by Leon Chaitow in his column (page 19) and expressed throughout the bodywork and healing features. Dr J describes four case studies of eczema each requiring a totally different remedy, based upon each person's temperament, behaviour or physical symptoms. Even the research updates illustrate that treatments as diverse as Qigong and nutritional supplements can be effective for hypertension and heart disease.

How does healing happen? Consider the homoeopathic remedy which cures the farm animal, the radionics treatment working on a strand of hair a great distance away, acupuncture treatment, detoxification through juice fasting, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, a yoga regimen, osteopathic manipulation, or the placebo pill. Not to mention hypnosis, spiritual healing, positive thinking or prescription drugs.

I am starting to hate the term "Complementary Medicine". I am sick and tired of watching television programmes with either serious investigative reporters intent upon warning the public of charlatan frauds, thereby wreaking paranoid havoc and driving genuine practitioners to seek redress in the courts, or comedic over-the-top exposés of so-called complementary medicine - everything from belly-dancing for healing to witch doctors' charms to catch your lover.

One of the many reasons that complementary medicine seems to get the short end of the stick when it comes to money, recognition and validation, is that by espousing to care for the needs and aspirations of the whole person, rather than by simply fixing a particular physical or emotional ache or pain, the entire philosophy of wholism is out of sync with the prevailing political, economic and social climate with its emphasis upon rationalising budgets, value for money, and overpaying a few superstars at the expense of most everyone else.

The well-known adage 'there is nothing new under the sun' or 'plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose' applies particularly well to natural health care approaches. Whether you consider fasting, dietary, herbal, homoeopathic, acupuncture or bodywork approaches, meditation or the power of mind, none of these are of recent origin.

Sober yet inspirational. Former US Congressman Berkley Bedell, speaking to the New York State Assembly's Committees on Higher Education and Health, (pages 7-9), minces no words in vividly describing his personally successful yet low cost unconventional treatments for Lyme Disease and prostate cancer, and in describing the powerful domination of health care by the pharmaceutical and medical establishments. He laments and protests the vilification and disqualification of gifted physicians and researchers because they research or offer unconventional treatments to patients for whom conventional medicine offers no prospect of effective treatment.

Complementary Medicine appears to be making significant progress - growing popularity with the public, increased albeit sometimes begrudging acceptance by the medical profession, a higher research profile and improving professionalism of practitioners of the various therapeutic disciplines.

In all the years since Positive Health (PH) has been established, one key area which has never ceased to astonish me has been the vastly differing areas of perception regarding diverse complementary disciplines among the enormously varied community of health professionals.

At a time that we face a crisis in nutritional health and malnourishment in much of the population due to inadequate nutrition for hospital patients, junk foot diet habits and diminishing soil fertility, there is a concerted effort internationally from EU Directives, CODEX, and medical research scientists to severely restrict the availability and potency of nutritional supplements.
