Top 50 Holistic Medicine Blogs

November 11, 2009

With the political focus on physical health, many people may forget that some health care practitioners believe that a person’s health is integrated physically, mentally and spiritually. Without this integration, these holistic health practitioners believe that a person may not achieve a healthy lifestyle. With that perspective in mind, the following list focuses on fifty holistic medicine blogs that feature alternatives to traditional Western medicine and that often emphasize preventative measures to illness and injury.

To be included on this list, which is divided into categories that range from Ayurvedic medicine to naturopathy, the chosen blog had to have an updated entry posted within the past three to four weeks. The blogs are listed alphabetically within each category to show readers that we do not favor one blog over another.
