Alternative Health

Why do I include "Alternative Health" information on a homesteading/survival web site? It's my opinion that "alternative" health-care practices are an integral part of the "homesteading philosophy" of increased self-reliance and the "survival philosophy" of "what can I do with what I have on-hand?" In both cases, professional medical treatment may be non-existant or so distant as to be unavailable. The more we rely on what we know, rather than on what we have, the less likely we are to give up and succomb to events around us.
