What is Alternative Medicine?
Alternative Medicine is any form of medical practice which is outside the realm of conventional medicine. It covers a broad range of healing philosophies, approaches and therapies. It works by assisting your body to heal itself instead of introducing strong drugs.
Alternative Medicine practitioners emphasize prevention and they attack the causes of the disease, rather than just the symptoms. The Chinese have a saying about the wisdom of "walking on both feet" which means using the best of both Eastern and Western medical philosphies.
You, as the patient, want to turn to new areas when it comes to health care, medication and the rising costs and side effects of conventional medicine. Sometimes, you do not get the care you want or deserve from your current doctor. Alternative Medicine gives you the alternative to conventional medicine, its negative side effects, high costs and less natural beginnings.
