Doctors are great, and prescriptions and surgery have saved many a life. But some people believe a steady diet of herbal supplements and holistic healing can also be effective, or at least complementary, to Western medicine. The Cleveland Clinic recently opened an herbal clinic in its Center for Integrative Medicine. Supporters say it's long overdue that hospitals embrace alternative medicine. Critics, on the other hand, say hospitals are a place of science, not unproven traditions.
