Belief in the Efficacy of Alternative Medicine among General Practitioners in the Netherlands
Journal/Book: Social Science and Medicine. 1990; 31: 625-626.
Abstract: A survey among 293 GPs in the Netherlands showed that many believe in the efficacy of common alternative procedures. High scores were especially found for manual therapy, yoga, acupuncture, hot bath therapy and homoeopathy. Other procedures, such as iridology, faith healing and many food supplements, were considered less useful.
