Summary
Alternative, or complementary, health systems are gradually being integrated into American culture and can now be found in many American physicians' offices. This program from The Doctor Is In provides an overview of Chinese and Indian medicine, homeopathy, herbalism, naturopathy, and massage. It also examines osteopathy and chiropractic as practices recognized by traditional doctors. The program observes patients who are using one or more of these therapies in their health care, and speaks with several experts including Andrew Weil, a Harvard-trained physician and author of numerous books on integrative health; Dr. Christiane Northrup, an obstetrician/gynecologist and proponent of alternative medicine; Dr. Fredi Kronenberg, director of an alternative medical center at Columbia University; and Nancy Lonsdorf, a physician who practices both Western and the Indian system of Ayurveda in her practice
