DescriptionAlternative Medicine is an ancient form of healing. Dating back to thousands of years, the different healing practices have been tested and proven by our ancestors. Today, many use alternative medicine to complement conventional treatments.
In this app, you will get a comprehensive guide on the different kinds of alternative medicine. Learn information about home remedies, acupuncture, chiropractic care, homeopathy, herbal remedies and other forms of alternative health treatments and natural cures for the healing of many types of ailments.
Alternative medicine obviously means different medicine. It is the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses, wounds and injuries without traditional medical advice and using other forms of healing rather than drugs.
Alternative medicine covers a wide range of applications. There is the Chinese traditional method of healing with needles known as acupuncture. Massage, Yoga and TaiChi are all alternative methods for relaxation. Aromatherapy and herbal therapy use natural plant and herb extracts for many healing benefits. Chiropractic care deals with the manipulation of the spine in a drugless and non-surgical approach. Crystal healing, energy healing, magnet therapy and cymatic therapy are perhaps the more eccentric forms of alternative medicine.
The controversy surrounding alternative medicine is that it tends to veer away from conventional medicine. The unusual health practices are considered unorthodox by the more scientific standards of conventional western medicine. Almost always, practitioners of alternative medicine use these unconventional methods of healing to completely replace conventional methods.
There is real evidence that many of these unconventional methods have indeed improved the quality of life of patients who especially have not found relief or some form of cure from conventional treatments.
The choice of treatment methods will ultimately depend on the patient. Yet, when it comes to your health, it is always good advice to keep the balance between what is considered conventional and unconventional.
