The Growing Search for Alternative Medicine and Holistic Care
Recently, CNN aired an award winning Sundance Film Festival documentary entitled Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare. The documentary revealed the startling truth about where health care in America is headed. Escape Fire highlighted patient’s frustrations that often center on preventable issues, concerns, and conditions that are usually aggravated due to unfitting or inadequate care. The documentary introduces a war vet suffering from chronic pain and PTSD who is on multiple medications, a woman suffering from heart disease who can no longer afford ineffective surgeries and other flaws in America’s healthcare system. These patients eventually seek alternative medicine, such as acupuncture, meditation, and other holistic treatments to help with their conditions once and for all.
Today, more and more patients are seeking alternative medicine to avoid surgeries, stop taking medications that don’t solve specific conditions, and because it is more cost effective. Escape Fire expressed new, ‘innovative’ healthcare solutions from public and private areas in the field of medicine such as holistic remedies.
