My PCP is an osteopath and she RECOMMENDED I see a naturopath for my family heart health history.  

My OB/Gyn, who prescribes bio-identical hormones, as I was suffering terribly from hormonal issues is totally into natural health.  I was referred to her by my PCP.

My cardiologist seems to have a foot in both doors.  I had to put my foot down with her to not take a statin, but she is sending me links about natural remedies and foods to help lower LDL and I am sending her links.  I think she is on board as well.  

I chose my physicians very carefully!  I took my PCP's advice seriously and I am a patient of Dr. Nash's now as well.

A wider variety of tools gives the competent technician with greater capability.  With medical technologies this is doubly true as both the diagnostic and the therapeutic activities benefit from the wider base of knowledge.

I will be carefully looking for doctors who are qualified in complementary medicine in the future.  I'm not on ANY medications, and I plan to keep it that way.

adding...by "medications" I mean pharmaceutical company products.  I do drink peppermint tea.
