So far, I hope that my blog postings on alternative medicine have encouraged Christians to ask good questions and seek out information, like the strength of the evidence supporting therapies that are being considered or used. It is likely that some readers feel like they need to learn about a specific therapy as soon as possible. As indicated in my blog posting titled Alternative Medicine – Foundations Are Important, it may be a while before I get to specific therapies. So, I will mention some resources. Here is the first.
A series of articles on alternative medicine by George Smith, a retired General Practitioner (a traditional medical doctor), from the UK, that are published between 1994 and 2005 in Triple Helix, a journal published by the Christian Medical Fellowship in the UK. I have read a few of these and what I read is a source of useful information and questions and I suspect the rest will be as will. Over time, I hope to read them all.
A page that links to all of the articles can be found at: https://www.cmf.org.uk/publications/authors/?id=36
Practitioners and therapies discussed include, osteopathy, chiropractic, herbs, reiki, acupuncture, aromatherapy, reflexology, homeopathy, yoga and transcendental meditation.
I do not claim to endorse all that is in these articles but think they might be a useful resource.
