It’s hard to imagine a more complex mechanism than the human body. Medical science can tell us a great deal about how to keep that mechanism functioning normally–what to eat, when to do physical exercise, the importance of stimulating the mind–but it’s always amazing how much of why our bodies are the way they are is simply a mystery to the guys in white lab coats.
For that reason, we offer the following stories of alternative health and wellness with some caution. Alternative laser therapies, coconut oil, sports medicine and kombucha may help what ails you, or they may not. We explore them here in the knowledge that a holistic view of health–an active and growing mind, body and spirit–is the best way to go about living.
