Something to think about …. “Alternative Medicine”!!

GREAT QUESTION

Alternative medicine is any practice that is presented as having the healing effects of medicine, but is not based on evidence gathered using the scientific method.

Examples include new and traditional medicine practices such as homeopathy, herbal medicine, naturopathy, chiropractic, energy medicine, various forms of acupuncture, Traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, and Christian faith healing. The treatments are those that are not part of the conventional, science-based healthcare system.

The scientific community has criticized alternative medicine as being based on misleading statements, quackery, pseudoscience, anti-science, fraud, or poor scientific methodology. Promoting alternative medicine has been called dangerous and unethical. Testing alternative medicine has been called a waste of scarce medical research resources.

  1. Horti you really know how to bring out interesting and important subjects to think about in your posts. I personally believe in being a medical consumer I will use any medical technique that will help me be it alternative medicine,scientific medicine, Chiropractic or acupuncture.. As soon as a medical doctor tells me that the problem that a family member or myself are dealing with is all in my head (it means they just on’t know what is wrong) I fire them.
