Natural medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat disease and injuries, but only recently have modern medical professionals begun to embrace alternative treatments such as acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, and herbal medicine. Today a growing number of doctors are adopting the practice of integrative medicine, which combines contemporary medical treatment with a whole-person approach to health, healing, and wellness. In this segment, WSIU’s Jak Tichenor talks with Dr. Tieraona Low Dog, MD, a clinical professor of medicine in the University of Arizona’s Program in Integrative Medicine and an expert in natural medicine, who explains how ancient medical discoveries are being re-examined in light of today’s medical research. Dr. Low Dog recently visited the SIUC campus at the invitation of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute.
