Hello! I am a doctor and i use alternative methods to help my patients. Alternative medicine, as it's name says, means any type of treatment that it's not considered allopathic or conventional. It doesn't matter if it's about acupuncture or homeopathy, phytotherapy or bio energy. Each should be applied by someone that had studied it and knows very well what he/she is doing. Otherwise these practices can be dangerous or at least ineffective. Alternative medicine is much cheaper, but it shouldn't be taken light. Patients should know that following the doctor's guidance is as important as in conventional treatments. Otherwise the body loses it's recovery rhythm and both the patient and the doctor's efforts were for nothing. Anyway, alternative medicine has a very bright future, as now it combines science with medical history.

I think alternative medicine is the best way in curing some diseases especially cancer. However, I'm confused with what alternative medicine you mean? I usually think of it as herbal medicine! This are medicines that are made from natural ingredients from plants. It is not approved by some doctors but it has proven it's worth since it has cured lots of diseases. Acupuncture is very helpful too as long as you go to the right person to do this job.!
