Overview

If you’ve ever considered herbal supplements, meditation, yoga, or even changing your diet to promote better health, then you may already be familiar with the subject of “alternative medicine.” Join Professor Brent A. Bauer, M.D., for a fascinating exploration of what we know about this revolutionary — and controversial — field, and how it can help you live a healthier, happier life. Dr. Bauer introduces more than a dozen evidence-based holistic practices to complement conventional Western medicine, discussing the pros and cons of each, as well as popular myths and suggestions for integrating these therapies into your own wellness routine.
