Knowing the Reality Behind Alternative Medicine
In theory alternative medicine is a form that does not fit well with the western medicine framework once a form of medicine that has been well proven to be scientifically effective and a theory was able to show and explain the language of the western medicine why it has been said to be effective.
But then after the theory comes politics, in reality in the US alternative medicine is a form of medicine that has not been accepted as scientifically valid with the American Medical Association and US Government, in other countries different official bodies will then determine what is the true meaning behind it, like it has been believed that massage is a form of an alternative medicine. In Canada it has been considered as the conventional medicine that can be highly regulated.
Would you even consider to believe that the US government the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine vitamins are completely have not been proven to have a positive effect on the body.
There are theoretical uses of vitamins that are not yet proven fully but that doesn’t really mean that what has not been proven can be less scientifically valid.
At the same moment just because someone claimed that they offer alternative medicine makes them a liar supplements are not regulated and may not even disclose the ingredients that it contains for certain that it will not even tell you the dangers that it contains if taken together with another medicine.
If you are interested in using an alternative medicine for a specific problem or just simply to improve your health its best to do research what kinds of alternative medicine you are interested in and speak with the doctor about whether not she will be willing to work with the alternative expert.
Then you may find a practitioner who was able to go on training on that specific area with the alternative medicine, most forms of alternative medicine are not licensed in the US so ask where they went to school and how long have they been practicing it then that can go to the doctor to ensure that you get the right need without any side effect.
Oriental medicine is a form of alternative medicine that can be well compared to the western medicine as a system, oriental medicine is based on different theories that was developed thousand of years ago.
