Talk about a revolution—living a healthful lifestyle enables you to have the strength to get up and do what needs to be done. Here’s a look at the alternative systems and tools, and some of the practitioners, who can help.
Welcome to Catalyst’s 7th Annual Guide to Alternative Healthcare. Periodiclly we examine all the diverse medical and health care systems and practices that are not presently considered to be part of conventional, or allopathic, medicine, and update our list of offerings. Some of these therapies are thousands of years old. Others are as new as the latest technology. Old and new, they all share a common belief in the body’s innate ability to heal itself, and a common goal to facilitate mental, spiritual and physical well-being. Not all, but most of these practices can be found in the Salt Lake Valley.
We hope this guide encourages you to explore the wide variety of alternative practices available. And remember, it’s all about health: Be proactive. Don’t wait until you feel unwell to seek treatment. You take your car in for regular tune-ups—why not your body? Explore those modalities that intrigue and may benefit you. So it doesn’t fit your health insurance company’s definition of acceptable care and you have to spend some money up front? It’s worth it. Most of these modalities are pleasant. You can talk about them in polite company. And they work—which means you stay healthy.
