The expense is always going to be a problem for most people, what i would suggest you look into, if you are in a big city, even a smaller one for that matter, There are people out there who do many of the Natural paths, that don't call themselves New agers, or aren't out to make a buck, they do what they do because they love it, and because they like people and care, and often, will make the financial aspect as painless as they can, the difficulty is finding these in the maze of the ones who want your money.
have a look about see if you can find a Natural Health University in your area, I don't know where these people get there degree's over your way, so it may be listed in other ways, but sometimes these places will offer free or near to free consultations, yes you will be a guinea pig, for the final year students, but if you can get into this, then you may have a host of treatments available to you, many that won't interfere with your med's if you are taking them at the time,
One things however, is this industry was where i would have been if my stuff hadn't happened, so i have a huge interest here, and some of these things in this industry have been like a miracle to some people, but you have to do the right research and again the financial side is nasty, but as i have said there are sometimes ways around that, at least giving you the oppertunity to find what is best for you,
Another thing i suggest a lot, is Meditation, it works but the problem is most people learn it out of books, if there are any Centres that do this in your city, even a Krishna centre, if you get a Doc to refer you they may teach you for free or discounted, Theres no harm trying, and you learn something
Organise your time, give yourself at least an hour a day, to work on a stratergy to deal with what you are experiencing, today one step, tomorrow two and keep building on the day before, Meditation will help you do this,
