How does healing happen? Consider the homoeopathic remedy which cures the farm animal, the radionics treatment working on a strand of hair a great distance away, acupuncture treatment, detoxification through juice fasting, nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, a yoga regimen, osteopathic manipulation, or the placebo pill. Not to mention hypnosis, spiritual healing, positive thinking or prescription drugs.

The well-known adage 'there is nothing new under the sun' or 'plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose' applies particularly well to natural health care approaches. Whether you consider fasting, dietary, herbal, homoeopathic, acupuncture or bodywork approaches, meditation or the power of mind, none of these are of recent origin.

Sober yet inspirational. Former US Congressman Berkley Bedell, speaking to the New York State Assembly's Committees on Higher Education and Health, (pages 7-9), minces no words in vividly describing his personally successful yet low cost unconventional treatments for Lyme Disease and prostate cancer, and in describing the powerful domination of health care by the pharmaceutical and medical establishments. He laments and protests the vilification and disqualification of gifted physicians and researchers because they research or offer unconventional treatments to patients for whom conventional medicine offers no prospect of effective treatment.

I am starting to hate the term "Complementary Medicine". I am sick and tired of watching television programmes with either serious investigative reporters intent upon warning the public of charlatan frauds, thereby wreaking paranoid havoc and driving genuine practitioners to seek redress in the courts, or comedic over-the-top exposés of so-called complementary medicine - everything from belly-dancing for healing to witch doctors' charms to catch your lover.

When I look at the Research Updates in this issue of Positive Health (PH) (please see pages 30-33), I see the tremendous progress made in the quality and nature of research investigations over the past 15 years since the launch of PH in 1994. Today there are vital and well-informed studies critiquing the methodology of researching Complementary Medicine compared with ‘conventional’ drug-based medical trials (see Fonnebo et al, page 30).
