Please talk with your priest, perhaps several priests.
I know a Greek Orthodox Priest who is against the use of all herbs and alternative medicine ever since the day when he had to exorcise a cancer patient for consulting an herb specialist who dealt with tarot cards, etc. HOWEVER, it was the use of tarot cards and palm readings which were wrong, not the use of simple herbs, like chamomile, which is used in Europe and in Russia to calm the stomach.
We must be balanced. Some eastern practices of medicine, such as acupuncture and herbal remedies are valid.
The recent study of acupuncture to help relieve female menopausal and postmenopausal flashes validated the use of acupuncture. As you might know, acupuncture involves the meridian and energy lines of the body.
