I am glad alternative medicine is becoming increasingly accepted and used in mainstream healthcare. I'm hoping the the government starts making more of an effort to many of these treatments covered by insurance companies.

I think we have to be careful about the terms we use.
Natural, Alternative and Complementary medicine are not necessarily all the same.
We still need to have good evidence that what we are doing is having results and those results are improving our health.
