The acceptance and use of holistic medicine has been on the rise since the early 1990s, with more Americans reporting they are open to alternative medicine therapies.

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the National Center for Health Statistics, four out of every 10 adults and one out of every nine children use complementary or alternative medicine.

Hospitals, health maintenance organizations and a growing number of physicians also have discovered the benefit of mixing conventional medicine with holistic approaches.
