Synopsis by Sally Barber
The six-part Natural Born Healers series examines alternative healing methods and how those methods can effectively compliment conventional medical treatment. Programs feature an individual patient and leading authority in the healing field as they partner to explore more unorthodox healing options. The episode Integrated Medicine focuses on Roy, a sufferer of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Roy has undergone conventional medical treatment for his condition for three years without relief. While his physician does not support complementary healing methods, he takes a new course and refers Roy to an alternative therapist. Roy experiences a 70 percent improvement in his condition. Other programs in this series include Acupuncture, Herbalism, Homeopathy, Hynotherapy, and Osteopathy.
