"The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul, and therefore, if the head and the body are to be healthy, you must begin by curing the mind. That is the first thing. Let no one persuade you to cure the head until he has first given you his soul to be cured. For this is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human body, that physicians first separate the soul from the body"
Plato wrote this in his book The Republic in 380BC.
As you can see, natural, or alternative medicine has ancient roots. It is a system of health care which offers a different approach to preventing and treating disease, other than the allopathic, or drug oriented ways. It involves more natural ways of healing leading towards optimal attainment of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of health. These ideas come form all over the world. The Chinese believe that life and health are directly related to the flow of energy through out the body called "Chi". Chi is considered a form of healing energy, and if it is blocked, disease is manifested. When it is unblocked through acupuncture and Chinese herbs, healing results.
