Americans are becoming increasingly involved in their own health. Many of them put a lot of credence in alternative and complementary treatments. They say that traditional medicines do not work for their problem—”Why should I use it?” You see that all over the Internet.
Dr Ronald Hoffman is the founder and medical director of an independent clinic, The Hoffman Center, in New York City. He is a complementary medicine practitioner, a certified physician, and believes that a natural or nontraditional medical approach can be the key to wellness, a way to optimize or make someone healthier than they might otherwise have been. Alternative or the complementary includes acupuncture, biofeedback, chelation therapy (which claims to remove toxic substances and heavy metals from an individual’s bloodstream), chiropractic, osteopathy, homeopathy, massage, meditation, special diets, and supplements.
