FEATURE TOPIC: MEDICAL MYTHS,
SHIFTING KNOWLEDGE

Medical myths have always existed, of course; but in the age of the Internet, they have multiplied exponentially. These myths range from the merely benign and laughable to myths that can kill. But—given the sheer volume of information— distinguishing myth from valid information is increasingly challenging.

Equally challenging in this information age is the rapid expansion of health research and understanding. Thanks to growing numbers of long-term patient research studies, knowledge shifts constantly. What was "certain" a decade ago might be seriously questioned or refuted today; long-held assumptions about causes of health problems or appropriate treatment are regularly overturned; and what used to be "fact" might now be considered myth.

In the February 2023 edition of Health&Healing, we will seek guidance from local experts in separating the wheat from the chaff, in the pursuit of good health—exploring common myths, strategies for recognizing valid information, and important changes in the knowledge base

.

OTHER VOICES, OTHER CHOICES ARTICLES

A special section of the publication—Other Voices, Other Choices—provides a forum for area practitioners to submit articles related to the feature topic. In this section, we invite health care/health service providers who have a special connection to the feature topic to write articles about their work.

It’s probably safe to say that any healer has confronted the challenge of  practicing in the age of the Internet—where Dr. Google offers both excellent information and advice and harmful, even life-threatening mythology.

In this issue of Health&Healing we invite area practitioners to share their experiences and concerns about the myths their patients and clients have presented to them, as well as changes in the knowledge base of their specialties. To add your voice to the conversation, see information about the Other Voices, Other Choices section in Advertising in Health&Healing, and contact us at 919-967-6802.
