What is Alternative Medicine?

 

Holistic Medical Clinic combines alternative medicine and holistic treatments with pragmatic approaches to health and well-being.

The question that many of you might be wondering is what is alternative medicine exactly? Alternative medicine has been gaining in popularity ever since its first application. People have begun to look for ways to cure themselves of various ailments and injuries. Alternative medicine is any method that aims to attain the same healing effects as traditional, scientifically proven medicine, but which is either untested, unproved or unproven ineffective. It, therefore, takes conventional medicines and makes them more effective. Some alternative medicine techniques that are used include acupuncture, acupressure, aromatherapy, reflexology, herbal remedies, yoga, and homeopathy. Many integrative modalities utilize several of these therapies in conjunction with one another. These alternative medical products are becoming more popular than ever and many people are choosing them instead of using pharmaceuticals.

 

In order to gain an understanding of alternative medicine, you might want to try some of the following therapies: massage therapy, reflexology, yoga, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal remedies and meditation. Acupuncture and homeopathic remedies are effective pain relievers that can help to reduce stress. Please take a look at some of these services we have to offer.

 

One example of a non-conventional therapy is meditation. Meditation has been used for thousands of years to help people deal with anxiety and other symptoms. However, in the West, most mainstream doctors and health practitioners do not encourage meditation or promote it as a complementary therapy because some people think it can be dangerous. However, the health benefits of meditation may include the reduction of stress, better mood and relaxation, better oxygen levels in the brain, and a decreased risk of disease.

 

Some of the modalities used in alternative medicine can actually complement standard care. For example, massage therapy can help to relieve the pain associated with arthritis and other conditions. Acupuncture is another form of alternative medicine that can help to treat anxiety and other mental health disorders without the use of prescription medications. On the other hand, homeopathic products are used to diagnose and treat common illnesses like the flu and colds by providing vitamins and minerals to the body that your body needs to combat the illness.
