Creative Docs and You

by Marcia Mueller

I just finished reading a thought provoking article about doctors and how they treat and diagnose patients.  The auther, a doctor herself, gave an example of four people with diabetes.  They were all very different, yet as she pointed out, conventional medical taining would indicate that they would be basically be treated the same.  Her argument is  that one size doesn't fit all and at times you need a little creativity to find a good solution.  The irony here is that acupuncturists are often criticized for not having standarized treatment protocols.
