An examination of the differences between alternative and conventional medicine, and how conventional medicine may be too narrow in scope.

From the Inside Flap:

For more than two centuries, conventional and alternative medicine have struggled for control of health care. As alternative medicine has gained acceptance, many people have awakened to the fact that this is a struggle over money and market share.

But in "Physician", noted health journalist Richard Leviton argues that the real stakes are far higher. He argues that this is a battle for human freedom, the freedom to wake up and spiritually evolve as an individual, and says that medical practices can be catalysts for your spiritual awakening--or can oppose it. Therefore the doctor's true role takes on a greater importance than ever before, since physicians can either support or hinder your spiritual development.

In an empassioned argument that is at once metaphysical and practical, philosophical and therapeutic, "Physician" outlines the fundamental differences between conventional and alternative medicine, explaining how each approach fosters an attitude about consciousness and the environment, about the body and the world. In meticulous detail, "Physician" shows how alternative medicine works with the intricate energy connections linking our thoughts with our body and our body with the natural world, and how consciousness can heal and change the world--all of which conventional medicine denies.

Ultimately, "Physician" empowers health care consumers to make deeply informed choices about their medical care, understanding fully the physical and spiritual risks and benefits.
