On this page, you will find links to information about natural health including natural alternatives for both treating and preventing infectious diseases. Western medicine is the dominant form of healthcare in developed countries but it is by no means the oldest modality nor is it the most evidence-based for many chronic conditions.
In making your healthcare decisions for your family, it would pay to investigate all the options with an open mind and to consult with more than one practitioner to find one whose philosophy of healing and health maintenance agrees with your own.

|Chiropractors’ Association of Australia||The AVN has removed the link to the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA) at the request of Dr Matthew Fisher, CEO.
