Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) March 17, 2010
Now members of AlternaMD.com can get their health and wellness questions answered by email from a medical doctor, often within 48 hours.
Dr. Kerry D. Friesen, M.D. writes a bi-weekly Dear-Abby-style column answering questions submitted by members of the service, found at http://www.AlternaMD.com. Due to the large volume of queries, not all questions can be answered in the column, but all member questions receive a personal response from Dr. Friesen.
To the surprise of many members, the answers are often far more detailed than the information they may have received from their own physicians during office visits.
“As a doctor, I’m excited to be able to offer this level of service,” says Dr. Friesen. “In the standard office visit setting, doctors often can spend only a few minutes with each patient. But if I need to, I can take 45 minutes or more preparing an answer. That’s one of the things that makes this such a great value for our members.”
AlternaMD.com provides a wide variety of health and wellness information and news for members and the general public. Frequently updated features available without a password include health and beauty, nutrition and supplements, stress management, and exercise advice, all with a non-traditional focus intended to complement mainstream beliefs and practices.
For example, “Health Conditions A-Z” (http://www.alternamd.com/conditions) contains self-care methods for preventing and relieving symptoms of many of the most common health conditions. Of course, the information provided at AlternaMD.com is intended for users’ general knowledge only, and is not a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions.
After years of experience in the alternative health industry, AlternaMD’s founders realized that consumers want more than a quick, temporary fix from a pill or crash diet. AlternaMD has quickly become the fastest-growing members-only self-care website, where consumers can receive support for their healthy lifestyle goals while learning about health and wellness in an online environment uninfluenced by pharmaceutical advertising.
