continue to soar, finding alternative heating methods becomes more of a priority.

Replacing oil and gas systems with solar heating systems would go a long way in preserving precious fossil fuels, not to mention reducing the hazardous effects of air pollution.

While there are some doctors who are willing and even eager to integrate alternative therapies with more mainstream ones, there are others in the medical community who dispute their effectiveness, think they reek of scam and snake oil, and are even downright criminal.
