One of the television shows that I have loved has been “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.” True, it’s just a show; however, a conventional lady doctor in the late 1800s learning medicinal uses for herbs from a Native American is totally fascinating. Traditional or conventional medicine working hand in hand with alternative or complementary therapies….and that’s how it should be. Guess you could say that I lived vicariously through Dr. Quinn, since as a young person I thought seriously about becoming a doctor. Loving medicine, loving the west, loving being a fish out of water….the show really hit home for me. How unconventional being a lady doctor in those days! Or maybe it was her love interest, the handsome mountain man, Sully. Hmm.
