[Different arts of healing from the point of view of the private general practitioner]
The term "alternative medicine" conjures up a two-fold image, composed of two non-quantifiable phenomena--placebo, and scientifically unproved acts. In view of the extensive practice of this alternative approach, as evidenced by the large proportion of patients who have recourse to same--on grounds of relief or even complete recovery obtained--results that can only testify to the professional comptency of the practiotioner. At present, strict regulations are being liad down, limiting these alternative practices by nealer practitioners and kinesitherapists. Exposition of a subject does not necessarily imply acceptance of same.
