Alternative Medicine is one of my two absolute favorite magazines.
Alternative Medicine is chock full of information and fact that everyone can use. The reporting is thoughtful and factual with in depth explanations that are easy to read and understand. The writers have a way of incorporating past information of how the supplement or herb or treatment was used years ago and how we use it today… creating a full in depth article without being overly wordy or boring.
Often times the magazine publishes many year round situations along with seasonal issues that may effect those who live in some regions more than others, so there is a well roundedness to the publication that would suit anyone regardless of geographical location.
The stories are not based on one certain age group, or even one certain species! Instead one will find articles that relate from infancy all the way through the many stages of life, although there may be more age neutral articles in one issue than another and not necessarily a specific article for every age in every issue. There is even a section for your pets so the entire family can live more healthily.
As an example, last months issue of Alternative Medicine dealt with things such as dogs fear of thunderstorms, Gilbert’s syndrome, skin care, circumcision, gardening and irritable bowel syndrome.
One of the best articles that I have read in Alternative Medicine dealt with taking or not taking prescription drugs to deal with bone loss. The article came out at a time when a couple of friends were faced with this issue and I was happy to be able to provide some straight forward information that they could use to speak with their physicians to help decide what is best for them. The title of that article is “Bones of Connection” and it can be found archived online here: Bones of Connection
I want to add that the Alternative Medicine magazine is for everyone, regardless of ones personal approach to health care. The information contained in the pages of the publication is important and could have a very large impact on your life, or that of your loved ones.
