Description

Millions of Americans swear by the alternative medicine of Dr. Andrew Weil, a Harvard-educated physician. He would rather prescribe meditation rather than medication. Nationwide, consumers spend nearly $14 billion a year for medical treatments rarely offered by the family doctor. What distinguishes Weil from the rest is his radical eclecticism. He recommends a variety of things: herbalism, acupuncture, naturopathy, but where he may get into trouble is when he uncritically endorses treatments such as cranial manipulation that seem like folly even to many alterative-medicine believers.
