I like the idea of questioning the status quo paradigm, and I like the integration of tactics from other methodologies of healing than Western medicine.
Though, I am not sure works like this article are really the best way to go about that.
We do need to be careful that economic drives aren't leading medicine in certain areas. It's not a system that can be run on supply and demand.
Additionally, certainly there are mistakes in modern medicine, and I think part of that is being realized in the shift to more "natural" childbirth settings in obstetrics - more comfort, more soothing lighting, more quiet, less harsh light and cold metal and machinery. Some exposure to germs is good, and I am in favor of moderate immunization for the same reason.
I like the idea of "holistic" healing, in the sense of treating the whole person in its context. I think environmental health is an important part of personal health; we need to take care of the planet for its own sake, and for biodiversity's sake, but also for our health's sake. We need to attend to our stress levels and our intrapersonal wellbeing. We need to attend to the health of our relationships with our family and friends. We need to maintain positive, safe spousal relationships. We need to educate ourselves on how to take care of ourselves and our surroundings and live accordingly. And so on.
There are times, like in cardio surgery, when there needs to be bright harsh light and artificially-induced sterility and strange chemicals and metal and plastic implements and all sorts of bizarre, removed technologies. Left to its natural devices, the body would otherwise die; we need the artificial to preserve it "unnaturally". But as others have pointed out, the body is a self-cleaning and self-sustaining mechanism for the most part, and encouraging overall wellbeing will do the most to preserve health.
But unfortunately for scientific progress, we cannot see the beyond the bounds of time, so we do the best we can.
