I want to create an open forum to discuss all forms of healing. Traditional medicine has created problems. The alternative medical pathways have discovered other truths. I am an ER doctor, I was family practice trained. I became boarded in sports medicine. I have always been interested in preventative health. I'm convinced nutrition is going to become a major focus of health in the future. I'm convinced that many of the alternative medicine practices have turned up some very beneficial clinical pathways.

Conservative medicine in general have not particularly done a good job in identifying treatments to maximise health. Typically those kinds of studies dont get good funding. Similarly nutrition studies and vitamin studies don't get good finding either. What does get funded are prescription medicine studies which again leads to formula of disease--- treatment which has dominated traditional medicine.

In addition we are facing new dilemmas in medicine such as how to approach nutritional medicine. The problem is that there are so many variables that classic studies are difficult or even impossible to do. All of this leads to my conclusion that there are other ways of approaching these problems.

I'm looking for unbiased practitioners in alternative backgrounds to discuss health. Everything from faith healing to pharmacologists. Applied kinesiology to meditation as medicine.
