Thank you, Swarthmore Bulletin, for publishing this article on alternative healing. As a consumer of both Western and Eastern healing modalities, I reply on both systems to maintain my health. If it were not for Western medicine, I would not be alive today (I have a pacemaker.) If it not for acupuncture, herbs, meditation, and my yoga practice, I might be taking much more prescription medications and be much less happy and healthy. I appreciate that the Swarthmore Bulletin is bringing in alternative perspectives that might help us embrace whole-heartedness, non-dualism, and openness.
