“Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.”
A significant number of people are waking up to the promise of Integrative Health. They start by looking in the internet for information, and practitioners who may help them sift through it. Patients may end up bogged down by the voluminous amounts of studies and opinions the field is generating. This blog may be inadvertently contributing to the confusion that may grip some searchers. But, bear with me for two more paragraphs.
In my opinion, these are the main points to look for as you study Integrative Health:
Health Care practitioners trying to implement them under the present model of delivering care may not be able to do justice to ALL those concepts. It is impossible to put NEW WINE in OLD BOTTLES. Look for practitioners who do the above to help you become your own doctor, save for emergencies, of course.
