In a recently published article in the New York Times regarding holistic health and alternative treatments, a Times journalist reported about the spread of holistic treatments in Hong Kong, China. Known in the large territory as “folk remedies,” holistic treatments and alternative remedies have always been used to treat minor illnesses, cleanse the body, and promote religious peace rituals. The rise of the use of the treatments despite the medical communities negativity toward them, however, has baffled some government entities and led to an increase in the production of anti holistic health literature and propaganda.
According to the New York Times article, the Hong Kong government has actually banned certain natural remedies that can be sold to its citizens via online naturopath websites and local shops. A Hong Kong physician who was interviewed for this article reported that the banning of these natural treatments has done little to reduce Hong Kong’s citizen’s use of the substances. The physician reported that he receives several weekly cases of patients who come into the hospital because they are ill after consuming these ancient Chinese treatments. The doctor also revealed that he and colleagues that he is in contact with are supportive of the legislation that suppresses the rights of the citizens to purchase these ancient treatments.
The ancient Chinese remedies and other holistic treatments may be against medical advice in China, but is only illegal in larger territories like Hong Kong. The physician interviewed for this article stated that patients who were advised not to consume these supplements or use illegal treatments often purchase them on their visits to mainland China and abroad. Speculation about heavier restrictions on air travel and gate access has caused concern in other countries. While Hong Kong government official would like to further legislate access to illegal substances and holistic Chinese treatment, government officials across China seem to be opposed to the idea. With reports such as the one discussed in the New York Times articles being frequent among Hong Kong physicians, however, legislative action could be imminent.
The author of the recent New York Times Bestseller, “The New Health Rules,” recently sat down with the Food Network Magazine reporters to discuss his new book and how holistic treatments can be integrated with daily food preparation. The book has become wildly popular in chef circles because of its delicious recipes and health implications. After the popular actress, Gweneth Paltrow, stated that this book was one of her hidden weapons for maintaining a thin physique, the book remained at the top of the best sellers list for many weeks.
Dr. Frank Lipman, the creator of the health rules and the author of the book, discussed his purposes for writing the book and his hopes for individuals who chose to follow the rules. The author is also the founder of a popular wellness center in The Bronx, New York. The center focuses on holistic treatment and the removal of toxins through adequate nourishment and the intake of nutrients. After working with hundreds of wellness patients, including famous celebrities, Dr. Lipman realized that the average person has virtually no clue how to care for themselves in a manner that produces longevity, natural beauty, and physical strength.
When discussing the book and its purpose with The Food Network, Dr. Frank Lipman discussed the difference between integrative medicine, which he practices, and traditional western medicine. Dr. Lipman stated that integrative medicine was a significant blend of mainstream medical practice and holistic or alternative medicine. The recipes reflected in the physician’s diet book represent his blended practice. As of the release of this article, Dr. Lipman had plans to continue practicing at the New York wellness center in addition to his book tours, which are scheduled for the remainder of the 2017 fiscal year.
In a recently published article regarding holistic and alternative health care treatments, the BBC reported on an incident where a 4 year old boy was rushed to the emergency center for a vitamin D overdose after his parents had used alternative treat symptoms associated with the Autism disorder. The child had been diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2 and was being observed by medical practitioners. Since there is no mainstream treatment for the Autism disorder, the boy’s parents decided to implement holistic treatments with the oversight of a holistic health care professional to reduce problematic symptoms that the toddler was exhibiting.
The treatment of symptoms associated with the Autism disorder and other disorders in the Autism spectrum with holistic or alternative treatments is actually quite popular in the United States and abroad. As much as mainstream medical communities attempt to discredit the treatments as invalid or even dangerous, there is a serious distrust of mainstream medicine among average citizens. Accusations of the medical industry include the suspicion that mandatory vaccines are actually a cause of the development of Autism, which has increased in its occurrence since the early 1900s. The medical community has made many attempts to dispel the idea that vaccines are a major cause of Autism, but its heavy ties to and financial backing by the pharmaceutical companies that create and sell vaccine make it an untrustworthy source in the eyes of many.
After treating the boy’s Autism with epsom bath salts, vitamin supplements, camel’s milk, and colloidal silver for many weeks, his parents were shocked when he began to become ill. After he lost several pounds and began to vomit, the boy’s parents admitted him to the local emergency room, where they were told he was suffering from a toxic level of Vitamin D. Physicians announced that the condition could be fatal in certain individuals and that parents should exercise caution when using holistic treatments or alternative healthcare remedies.
