New Mexico center to blend Eastern, Western medicine

AP/USA Today, August 21, 2008

The University of New Mexico's new Center for Life offers what officials call "complementary medicine" that augments modern medicine with practices and treatments that may go back thousands of years in other cultures. The philosophy has its basis in preventing disease, says Arti Prasad, MD, the center's director. The center's physicians work with yoga instructors, doctors of Oriental medicine, or hypnotherapists when treating patients.
