Alternative medicine might help decrease health-care spending

As health-care costs continue to increase, more access to alternative medicine might help the U.S. achieve cost-cutting goals.

Although consumers might be saving money on generics or avoiding drugs altogether, they’re still paying hundreds in out-of-pocket health-care costs.

To ease the burden facing our country, it might be a better time than ever to encourage alternative medicine for preventive care and long-term health maintenance.

If insurance policies offered increased access to relatively low-cost alternative medicine, as well as coverage for safe, cost-effective natural supplements, the U.S. would likely see health care costs decline.

What’s more, the approach of many alternative therapies could help better control skyrocketing cases of chronic illness. Instead of simply focusing on treating symptoms, alternative medicine promotes prevention through healthful lifestyles, supplements and holistic therapies.
