What Is Alternative Medicine And Why You Should Consider It
Viva Healthy Life – Alternative Medicine Alternative medicine refers to non-traditional
Alternative medicine refers to non-traditional medical systems and practices.
In other words, it is everything that does not fit into the concept of modern western medicine. It includes ancient medical systems like Ayurveda as well as relatively modern ones like homeopathy. Also included under the “alternative” umbrella are medical systems like Chinese acupressure & acupuncture, Reiki, pranic healing and many other types of so-called “energy medicine” systems. Apart from that, various massage therapies, physical therapies like chiropractic fall under alternative medicine.
One of the key differences all these systems have from modern medicine is that the latter is based on scientific evidence and validation, while the former are usually not.
This does not necessarily mean they are not effective, though. It does point to a paucity of real research on some of these medical approaches. So what are some of the advantages of alternative medicine? Why should you even consider it seriously? One of the biggest plus points of alternative medical systems is that they generally work with the body to heal the disease. This is as opposed to modern medicine which tries to suppress symptoms and thus effect a “cure”. As a result of this natural approach, alternative medicine is relatively free of serious side effects. Which is something that cannot be said for modern medicine, as we all well know. In many cases, alternative medicines are far more cost effective than modern medicine. In part, this has to do with the fact that there are generally no complex manufacturing processes involved — the medicines are manufactured by processing natural substances in a fairly simple manner. Also, there are no patents involved, which means costs are often dramatically lower! In fact, in some cases, you can easily procure the ingredients or complexes required to manufacture the medicines. And you can make the medicines at home using simple processes. Which means you have complete control over the end result and you get to consume freshly prepared medications. Here’s another key difference between alternative and modern medicine. The former recognizes that both health and disease are part of our life experiences. In curing diseases through a natural approach, the body’s immune systems are strengthened. When the cure is done using modern medicine, the body often becomes weaker as a direct result of the medicine. And there is no real strengthening of the immune system, beyond what the body does on its own. For all these reasons, you should seriously consider taking up alternative medicine approaches to restoring health. Your body will be glad you did.
