User:hi, how r u doing? can i ask a question on reiki healing?
Please proceed with your query
User:Is reiki healing useful and practical?
Doctor:I am fine thank you.
Doctor:I am a physician and I am not very well aware of the usefulness of reiki healing. However there are no scientific evidence approving this as treatment options.
User:What about accupuncture, accupressure, etc.?
Doctor:There are lot of anecdotal reports that accupuncture, acupressure, reiki healing, naturopathy, homeo and ayurveda help in the treatment of many conditions.
Doctor:However we do not have scientific evidences backing them.
Doctor:If you have a chronic condition, you can try those treatments through trained experts.
Doctor:As a physician, I do not prescribe such treatments to my patients.
User:why does allopathy cease to be effective in chronic ailments?
Doctor:I would answer this question in this way.
Doctor:All other forms of treatment do not give you instant healing.
Doctor:You find benefits with gradual and patient therapy.
Doctor:I am sure the alternative medicine colleagues agree to this statement.
User:Do u have an independent practice too?
Doctor:Since allopathy is based on scientific evidences, we write treatment whenever it is required.
Doctor:And let the body take care of itself.
Doctor:If you patiently follow allopathy treatment and all other instructions given by the doctor
Doctor:then you will find no significant difference between allopathy and other form of treatment.
Doctor:I did have an independent practice. But now restrict myself to healthcaremagic services and managing few old patients.
Doctor:Do you have any more queries?
User:i have tried allopathy for four years for fibromyalgia, but it was not yielding any long term improvements (the issue was not being resolved from the root level) - no permanent recovery.
Doctor:May I know what treatments did you try?
User:I was taking allopathy medicines like multivitamins, anti-depressant, ciplar
