Mind-Body Therapies Become More Mainstream

Complementary and alternative medicine is used by more than 1/3 of Americans and that number is expected to rise as conventional medical providers recommend mind-body therapies (MBT), such as yoga and meditation, to their patients. Once thought of as being “on the fringe” of mainstream medical care, research from Harvard Med School and Beth Israel Deaconess Med Ctr says that is no longer the case. Researchers collected data from over 23,000 US households and found that 3% - about 6.3 million people - were referred to MBT by mainstream providers. "These data suggest that mind-body therapies have really become a mainstream approach to care," says senior author Russell Phillips, MD. "But more research is needed to guide physician and patient decision-making regarding their use."

I decided to share this to help someone out there who is still held with Parkinson's.

My dad suffered from parkinson's for 18 years and we traveled round the world from one hospital to another neurologist and spent thousands of dollars and even got scammed in this process of seeking a cure and the problem still persisted. He acted weird and aggressive and this was so scary. All thanks to Dr Lusanda who was able to use his herbal medicine to cure him permanently. He is one of the Honest men out there. If you want to contact him on how to get this herbal medicine or for info just reach him directly on drlusandaherbal(AT)gmail(DOT)com or website on www(DOT)drlusandaherbals(DOT)weebly(DOT)com Thanks admin.
