Editorial Issue 11

by Sandra Goodman PhD(more info)

listed in editorial, originally published in issue 11 - April 1996

One of the many reasons that complementary medicine seems to get the short end of the stick when it comes to money, recognition and validation, is that by espousing to care for the needs and aspirations of the whole person, rather than by simply fixing a particular physical or emotional ache or pain, the entire philosophy of wholism is out of sync with the prevailing political, economic and social climate with its emphasis upon rationalising budgets, value for money, and overpaying a few superstars at the expense of most everyone else.

From time to time there have been brief eras, such as during the 60s and 70s when many western societies appeared to embrace a more humanistic vision of living and working together which is nowadays looked down upon as unrealistic and naive. All of us, even those who have retained this same vision, have been forced to scramble and hustle for a living, which has contributed to fragmentation between so many valued professionals.

It is hoped that Positive Health provides a forum enabling these disparate factions to communicate to a wider audience. The material published originates from many sources and is written by and for general readers, researchers, complementary and orthodox therapists. As is usually the case, the articles appearing in this issue of Positive Health encompass a wonderfully varied range of subjects - vibrational medicine, nutrition, bodywork and healing. In addition to our new enhanced colour look, we also introduce a new feature (see page 28) where people write about their personal experiences of using complementary medicine.
