Q:what impediments exist in integrating alternative medicine into biomedicine?
More Answers to “what impediments exist in integrating alternative medicine into biomedicine?“Skepticism. The only impediments that I’ve heard of are that there are a (very)few herbs that would not interact well with traditional medicine. Other than that, alternative and bio – I’m hoping you mean traditional – medicine are complimentary. For example, one could go to a hypnotherapist if regular medicine didn’t help with their headaches. Herbs and/or homeopathic medicines are as effective as traditional medicine, with no toxicity. Aryuvedic medicine is also a very valuable tool to use in gaining and maintaining good health.
And lack of credible evidence. A lot–if not most–therapies, remedies, etc., either haven’t been fully tested or fail to perform in double-blind studies. The hard part is finding a doctor who knows or at least accepts both. I’ve found some herbs can be very dangerous and don’t work in conjunction with prescription medications. (Example- hawthorne, which is known to be so good for high blood pressure is contraindicated with one class of prescription blood pressure pills.) The owner of my local nutrition store has the resources to check on interactions and precautions. I run everything by him. Homeopathic medications are considered safe.Research is the answer. And for the most part you have to do it yourself.

There is a new machine called the BIO-Feedback machine it’s about 30K and it’s very nautral and bio medicine at the same time. We have this machine at our spa that I work at and it’s does wonders!
