It seems that more and more people are exploring alternative methods toward better health. Personally I have tried accupuncture, cranial sacral therapy, chiropractics and of course yoga, meditation and pranayama. I seems that some things work for me and other things don't.
Please share some of your experiences with alternative self-care. Why you think somethings work for you and other things don't? What are your favorites?

I have tried numerous alternative medicine and health practices to alleviate pain from lower back and hip injuries. Acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, yoga, energy balancing, shamanic practices and more traditional medicing including steroid injections and pain/inflamation meds. Vitamins such as D3 and B12 have helped to improve my mental outlook and managed depleted adrenal function. Frankly, the traditional medicine helps me to manage day-to-day pain and function at the physical level that I feel I need to. Yoga, however, has been a great benefit and has helped me to begin to accept and work with my physical limitations, which in-turn has brought new awareness to my body and calmness to overabundant mental activity. "Yoga chitta vritti, narodha", right?. It has helped to change my outlook on life in general and even contributes moments of joy and optimism and I witness a certain amount of growth in my yoga practice. I have become a IYF-certified yoga teacher and practice Purna Yoga Integral, which borrows useful and relevant techniques from all the major yoga methods. I especially like the philosophy of staying in poses long enough to feel the effects on physical, mental, and spiritual levels rather than being overly focused on techniques of alignment that many other yoga methods and styles promote. Re-reading what I've just written; I guess I have to conclude that yoga has become a passion.
