Today on Your Call: What are the merits of alternative medicine?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about alternative health care-- how and why people are seeking out treatments like acupuncture, massage, herbs, and chiropractics. As the controversy over President Obama's federal health care plan continues in Washington, are you looking more to alternative/non-western medicine for effective and affordable care?  Does your insurance cover it?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  What kinds of treatments have worked for your health and your budget?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.

Guests
