This chapter explores alternative medicine treatment. When there is no effective and simple drug treatment for a disease, assuming drug treatment can ever be simple, and when the surgical options are dangerous or uncertain in outcome, the field is more than usually open for alternative medicine. It is any healing that does not fall within the realm of conventional medicine, or that which has not been shown consistently to be effective. Lawrence tried to practice the alternative treatment for his tuberculosis and maintain his respect for it.
