Health Workers Found More Likely to Use Alternative Remedies

Comstock/Thinkstock(MINNEAPOLIS) – A new report suggests that three-quarters of all U.S. health-care workers use alternative medicine in their regimen, according to HealthDay.

Doctors and hospital employees were found to be overall more inclined to use remedies like yoga, acupuncture, and herbal therapy in their own lives than the general public.

Lori Knutson of the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing in Minneapolis conducted the study with information from the National Health Interview Survey.
