„Life is at man’s disposal only once and the past will never come back“
Sun Simiao, (581-682 BC) Physician, Alchemist und Taoist Saint
Good health is only taken for granted until complaints make us aware of its absence.
In my opinion, an education in orthodox medicine is a prerequisite for the practice of complementary medicine. Only then can one claim to practise an holistic approach. Austrian legislation, particularly that governing education in acupuncture, homeopathy, Chinese pharmacology and other related techniques, has allowed the country to play a leading role in this field. From my own experience in teaching, I know that many European countries consider Austria as a role model in this regard.
