I'm a firm believer that mainstream medicine doesn't have all the answers, since I've had success with alternative therapies. I've tried acupuncture for neck pain as well as nausea during pregnancy, and have been treated by a chiropractor for lower back pain.
I went to a naturopath for digestion issues but found no relief and have also taken Chinese herbs — some helped and some did not. A Reiki practitioner helped reduce my pain when I broke my thumb, but this technique didn't help my lower back. My all-time favorite form of alternative therapy is massage. What alternative medicine practices have you tried? Did they help?
