Alternative Medicine

E-mail, alternative medicine, holistic health

"Alternative Medicine" is a very broad term which can include many disciplines. However, it should be distinguished from alternatives to medicine. Alternative medicine is practiced by actual physicians who have graduated from medical school and had specialty training and then discovered and applied effective methods of treatment which were not learned during their training years. Alternatives to medicine include an extremely wide array of methods of treatment, some of which are outright fraudulent and others which may be effective and may also have been adopted by open-minded doctors. An example of an outright fraudulent alternative to medicine is "psychic surgery." An example of an effective method of treatment adopted by many doctors includes acupuncture and homeopathy.
