I think each person is different and is sensitive to different ailments. And a lot of people do suffer from a stage of stress. I don't think that these 'so called alternative therapies' are so called. I have had some of these and they do work. Acupuncture helped me when I had a bad headache. Never put down a treatment until you've tried it.

I like to have some fresh air and water to drink if I get a headache. I find that warm water and bubbles can help back ache. I get a session in the jacuzzi which is ever so relaxing. If there are not any other people are in there I can lay down and the water massages my back. I find music can relax me. I had allergy testing at a homeopathic center. I found it helpful for me. My babies were all born at home. I used a water pool plus gas and air in my first baby's birth. Years later I had two labors with no pain relief. I liked a natural and active labor. I eat a vegan diet.

I have never really tried any of those non-conventional methods, but I do believe that it could be effective really in dealing with some ailments that has direct relation to the mind. Being in this world of having stress every day, it is inevitable not to get psychological issues for people who are very vulnerable.

Yes, it is called naturopathy and devised in the eighteenth century,is based on the premise that human body is capable of healing itself through natural processes. Treatment involves finding the correct diet ( including fasting ) and lifestyle for each individual patient and is sometimes accompanied by massage, exercise, special baths and sunbathing, mineral and vitamin preparations and herbal teas.

I've tried homeotherapy and natural stuff - from natural medicine the type when they wanna cure you with kind of stroking the air in front o your body. Now, this natural thing did nothing for me. As for homeotherapy, some "medicine" works for me, some worked really bad (made my skin really dry, full of eksema and really sensitive and swollen if it gets hot). So I'm not sold on them. I prefer antibiotics, they actually have experiences results.
