The rise and fall of alternative medicine.

Buckman, Rob.

About this work


A series in which Dr. Rob Buckman travels the world to examine alternative therapies, seeking the reasons for the great surge of interest over recent years in alternative medicine. "Part 2: The Rise and Fall of Alternative Medicine" Why are people dissatisfied with conventional medicine? Is the extra patient-time and personal support the strongest appeal of alternative therapies? Dr. Buckman visits a Southampton doctor who combines alternative medicine with orthodox methods, sees how a homeopathy practitioner helps a sufferer from rheumatoid arthritis, and how HIV positive patients respond to spiritual healing. In Sante Fe, New Mexico, a holistic practioner concentrates on chronic illnesses, claiming that this is one of conventional medicines areas of failure.
