Acupuncture--Its Time Has Come
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page essay that argues that acupuncture should be used more extensively and preferred over drug therapy. The traditional stance of Western culture and Western medicine is to regard ancient Chinese medicine, with its herbal remedies and needles, as superstition. However, contemporary medical practitioners are beginning to realize that this attitude is not only ethnocentric, it is simply wrong. Western pharmacologically based medicine can do wonderful things, but it can also cause extremely adverse drug reactions. On the other hand, there is a growing body of empirical research that verifies that alternative medicine, with techniques such as acupuncture, offer safe, effective means for bypassing the dangers entailed in extensive pharmacology. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Alternative Approaches: EDTA Chelation Therapy
[ send me this essay ]
A 5 page paper discussing the use of intravenous ethylenediaminetetraacetate (EDTA) for the treatment of atherosclerosis and other conditions. Chelation therapy has been researched and used for more than 40 years, but it continues to be condemned by the medical establishment that cannot profit from it as much as it can from bypass surgery, hypertension prescriptions and cholesterol-lowering drugs. Medicare and private insurers prefer to pay >$40,000 for bypass surgery rather than paying less than $4000 for chelation therapy. The situation is not seen as holding any promise for change in the near future. Individuals will need to continue to seek out chelation therapy on their own and pay for their own treatments. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
