It is a practice that claims to have the healing effects of medicine but does not have enough scientific research or evidence or verifiable results for specific conditions. It  includes a wide range of health care procedures, products and therapies. Alternative medical practitioners’ way of diagnosis and treatments are entirely different and do not come under the practices  typically used or included in the conventional medicine. Homeopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, and acupuncture come under the scope of  alternative medicine.

Alternative Medicine-Treatment Procedure 

Alternative medicinAlternative medicine considers the symptoms of the disease as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavorable lifestyle habits. It believes that the human body has an inherent power of self healing and treats the underlying cause of the disease by stressing on prevention , treatment  and good health.

Alternative Medicine Vs Conventional Medicine

For example, while treating for migraine, it finds out the causes of the migraine in the first place. Alternative medicine identifies the root cause of the problem and then prescribes appropriate treatment to cure the disease. In case of conventional medicine ,it may work fast and provide  us some temporary relief, but there are chances that the problem may surface back. But Alternative medicine works to take out the root cause and settle the problem once for all so that it never reoccurs. So our general health improves.

It is considered to be a safe option in the long run because natural products are used to correct problems. The medicines used in conventional medicine can  cause adverse effects on our body in future

Alternative Medicine-Natural Way to Health

Alternative medicin -an overviewAlternative medicine studies the social, spiritual  and cultural background  of the individual. It considers the patient’s lifestyle and accordingly plans the treatment. So it is far more flexible compared to conventional medicine.

This branch of medicine acknowledges and accepts that every individual has an inherent self healing power within himself/herself. It encourages the individual to be responsible for his/her health. Alternative medical practitioners motivate the individual to think reasonably and bring about self-responsibility for health .When each individual takes up the responsibility to maintain good health it promotes the well being  of a community, state, nation and ultimately our world. Alternative medicine  eliminates any hindrance to the process of recovery, thus supporting the natural self healing process.
