NUTR 1322 Basic Nutrition Discussion Post 6

According to DeBruyne et al. (2016), health practitioners should be aware of alternative therapies that patients may use in order to be able to knowledgeably discuss such options with their patients and empathize with them. I personally have tried mind-body interventions to improve my psychological and emotional well-being after experiencing stressful events and situations. Specifically, I tried meditation and music therapy to promote relaxation and reduce the level of stress. The overall effect that I experienced can be described as positive, as I felt calmer, more relaxed, and, as if I was able to breathe deeper. I think I will try other alternative therapies in the future, such as qi gong or aromatherapy. The reason why I want to try these techniques is I, as any other person, experience a lot of pressure and stress these days. Alternative therapies such as those that I mentioned afore seem like a harmless way to improve my mood and productivity, which is why I would like to try them, even if all I am going to experience is just a placebo effect.

Dear Leslie, thank you for your post! It was very interesting to read about your point of view on complementary and alternative medicine strategies. I understand your skepticism about such unconventional methods of treating and managing illness, but I think that they can be useful and helpful in many cases. I have never tried chiropractic care, but I know a person who did. She told me that she experienced a significant relief and the pain in her back disappeared. Of course, she had to visit the specialist at least twice a year to sustain the effect, but overall her experience was very positive. I think that we should remember that complementary and alternative medicine techniques can help us provide our future patients with holistic care and, hence, we should not dismiss them.

Thank you for your post! I agree with your argument that complementary and alternative medicine strategies should not be easily dismissed. Even if some of their effectiveness can be attributed to the placebo effect, I think the most important thing is to help individuals in need and, if they feel that alternative techniques promote their health and wellness, then we should empathize and provide our recommendations as to which strategies could be used in each particular case. I personally have also tried mind-body interventions and found them to be helpful and effective. While I also never expected such strategies to “cure” me, I still was pleasantly surprised how they reduced my level of stress and promoted relaxation. This is why I agree with your notion that treatment should be holistic, meaning we should be prepared to help our future patients using various approaches, including those that are considered complementary and alternative.
