Over the past two decades of practicing and teaching natural medicine, I have experienced at first-hand the effects and influence of osteopathy, acupuncture, homoeopathy, naturopathy and herbal medicine on my patients, on my family, and on my friends. I have also witnessed the movement of a number of modalities of the natural medicines from positions of marginality to sanctioned incorporation into the mainstream. I come to this study committed to the work of communicating the great worth of the natural medicines in the task of restoring health in our communities.
