Title: Alphabet Roulette: Hedging Your Bets with Herbal, Mineral and Vitamin Options for the Ambulatory Patient


Some consider alternative therapies a gamble.  This program will feature an evidence based approach to the presentation of a variety of alternative therapies with a primary focus on herbal remedies.  Additional attention will be paid to minerals and vitamins that provide complimentary or alternative options to traditional allopathic therapy.  Each selection will begin with a different letter of the alphabet and attention will be paid to both popular and not so popular options with an exploration of different routes of administration.  Would you wager to take a spin?
