Latoya Shaw English 1101/20815 Paul Carroll September 23, 2012 Is alternative medicine a better option than western medicine? I think that alternative medicine is a better option than western medicine because it has been around longer and seems to be more effective than western medicine. These are the two forms of medicine that we use today, western medicine and alternative medicine.

Some may argue that alternative medicine is better than western medicine because it deals with using natural remedies.
Assessment and Care Planning for the Adult in Hospital Care planning is the most important aspect of holistic care even though it is highly underestimated and often neglected. A holistic assessment involves looking at the individual as a whole rather than their illness. By doing this we can form a balance between the nature of person and the environment they are in. Holistic assessment will help to identify individuality, personality and spirituality (Makienen et al, 2003).

It leaves the patient fairly lethargic, and sometimes can even heighten the original symptoms. These medications almost seem to sedate the patient rather than treat them. Although medical professionals tend to rely on these, stating their effectiveness, I beg to differ. I do not feel that rendering a patient almost emotionless would be a preferred treatment. It seems to me as though these medications are used as a last-ditch
Doctors who lack proper training or those who have impairment problems tend to believe that their patients are honest about issues concerning prescriptions. These may include certain issues such as losing prescriptions, or early refills. This, however, only happens when the doctor fails to identify a drug abuse problem in the patient. Another ethical dilemma in the same field occurs when doctors do not disclose full patient history in the medical file of the patient. This may cause other doctors to prescribe the wrong drug thus putting the life of the patient at risk, either due to possible

It is the fastest way to relief or cure people but the root of the disease is not yet eradicated and this can lead to further probability of increase in recurrence and may intensify as the disease progress. As such, this essay will discuss the Zang-fu theory on physiological functions, their cooperation and pathological changes. Western ideas on the anatomy and physiological functions are completely different from the Chinese medicine.

Moreover, many people who pursue or will pursue this surgery only consider what physical benefits or health risks they might experience after this permanent transformation. But many of them less consider the psychological effect or consequence that they will have to deal with afterwards. There were previous studies that concluded different motivations of patients who undergone cosmetic surgery. Some of these factors that contributed to the motivation of seeking cosmetic surgery were cultural conflicts and the wish to avoid being stereotyped as alien.
