Example text

Jane had been advised to take some time off and get some rest. She’d followed this advice but felt no better. A dietary analysis showed that she was eating and drinking a huge amount of energysapping foods, that is, foods that are low in nutrients and high in stimulants. She lived on coffee, fizzy drinks, sugary sweets, pizzas, and ready meals. She was also unhappy in her job and felt stressed because she had the workload of two people after a colleague had left and not been replaced. Her sleep habits were also erratic because she often worked late into the night.

These are less well-accepted in orthodox medicine and have little scientific evidence to support their use. Energetic diagnosis Energetic diagnosis involves assessing the aura or electro-magnetic field believed to surround each person and may be determined using the hands or a measurement device. In manual diagnosis the practitioner runs their hands above the surface of your body to detect subtle changes in the electro-magnetic field according to changes in sensations felt in the hands that may indicate health problems.

Some critics argue that complementary medicine is all placebo, that is, that the treatments work simply because the patients want them to work rather than through any value of their own and that benefits are ‘all in the mind’ or are due to the increased personal attention and time spent with patients in complementary consultations. The growing body of scientific evidence doesn’t really justify such a claim and yet all treatments involve placebo to some extent. For example, studies have shown that, even in orthodox medicine, patients do better if they have strong confidence in their doctor or the treatment/medicine that they’re receiving.
