Raising Awareness of Complementary Medicine

Oct 02, 2015 12:59AM

The third annual Naturopathic Medicine Week will be held October 5-11, a time when many naturopathic physicians (NDs) will offer an opportunity for community members to learn more about how naturopathic medicine can help with healthy living and disease prevention. Local NDs will be showcasing their practices with open houses, articles, promotions and more to get the word out about the benefits. Check with practitioners in your area to see if they are offering any special events.

October 24 has also been designated Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day to increase public awareness of the benefits of this ancient healing system. Professional associations, research organizations and educational institutions in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Pakistan will partner to support local practitioners on this awareness day. Contact your local practitioner for more information on the modalities they offer and how such techniques can benefit your health and well-being.
