Watching Robin Williams in 1998’s “Patch Adams” was the first time I’d ever heard of alternative health treatments like laughter therapy. This, of course, is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to holistic health treatments, as you can see from the 15 innovations we’ve clustered below.
Over ten years after “Patch Adams” was released, Robin Williams is in the hospital again, but this time as a patient to undergo heart surgery.
