An Alternative Practitioner's View on Disease
Holistically trained doctors treat and diagnosis differently than conventional Western doctors in that they first consider why the body is not able to heal itself or put itself back into balance and why it now requires some healing intervention.

Cathy Margolin, licensed acupuncture and practitioner of oriental medicine, discusses treating the root of the DIS-ease along with the symptoms that are manifested.
