When Pills Don’t Work: Using Alternative Therapy for Drug Resistant Ailments

Change of Plans

I had something entirely different planned for this week.

But then I received notice of something I feel compelled to share with you.

In the past when I’ve published articles, I haven’t promoted them on A Better Way Wellness. At times it was because they didn’t always directly apply to the topics we discuss here. Other times it was out of fear of melding my academic life with my passion for holistic wellness. And because of my discomfort with self-promotion.

After the incredible, kind, and supportive response from last week’s confession post (thank you!), I’ve decided to leave fear behind and share everything I can to help you make the most informed choices about wellness.

So here we go!

Evidence-Based Article on Alternative Therapies

Yesterday, I had an article published in Frontiers in Medicine that was in the same vein as my (vulnerable) confession post last week.

And I want to share this article with each and every one of you.

Why?

Because the article highlights solid scientific evidence to support the use of alternative therapies in treating conditions when drugs have failed.  Yoga, diet, probiotics, folic acid, and even music therapy have helped patients with drug-resistant ailments such as depression, pain, and epilepsy.

So if you want to learn more about what to do when pills don’t work, please read the short commentary I co-authored in Frontiers in Medicine. It’s available free at: http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fmed.2017.00037/full.

Please Share

If you find the article interesting or useful, please share with friends, family, or on social media. My wonderful co-authors (Sarah Elizabeth Levitt and Grzegorz Bulaj, two bright and accomplished professionals and researchers) and I want our message to spread as far as possible.

Thank you for your support and sending you good vibes for the week,
Skye
