The dominant health care philosophy in the US is heavily biomedical or Allopathic which focuses on the physician and the disease process. Yet, there are other cultural health models that are thousands of years old, person centered, health focused, and complementary.
In this assignment you will choose one of the alternative health models (Ayurvedic, Curanderismo, Qigong, Reiki, Santeria, Voodoo) and explore Internet sites, library databases, or practitioners to learn about the model.
You will then explore the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) and choose a Complementary Health Therapy (acupuncture, healing touch, chiropractic, aromatherapy, biofeedback, relaxation therapy, etc.).
You will create a chart (based on Table 6-2) that compares and contrasts the three approaches: Allopathic (physician), Alternative Health Model (Ayurvedic etc.) and Complementary (acupuncture etc).
