Pagan Health Survey

From the excellent Wild Hunt blog news of Dr Kimberly Hendrick's survey of Pagan health.

Not surprisingly, she demonstrates that many Pagans tend towards a more holistic approach to health care than do many health care professionals, which leads those Pagans to seek alternatives.

Is this a uniquely Pagan stance? How enduring is this attitude? If I get knocked over I'm not sure I'd look to lavender oil and crystals to sort me out and not many Pagans I know would either. Discrepancies between Pagan and conventional understanding of mental health are particularly apparent and interesting.

Listen in to the podcast on Friday 19th and hear it from the horses mouth!
