Traditional and Alternative Medicine
Currently it’s becoming more common for doctors to incorporate both traditional and alternative medicine together. Often, it isn’t just the latest state-of-the-art machine that will help a patient, it’s using alternative medicine along with it- methods that have been used successfully for centuries in other cultures and countries.
Conventional medicine is traditional medicine is most us are familiar with (local doctors, clinics, hospitals, pharmacies). Alternative medicine includes a philosophy and practice that is inclusive of a variety of world cultures.
When it comes to medicine and treatment, we often live in a bubble, thinking that traditional medicine is the only way. Because of global communication and the openness of the internet, however, more and more people are becoming aware that there are alternatives to traditional medicines. The traditional medicine treats symptoms and problems of a certain given area, whereas alternative medicine focuses on cause and prevention, overall health, and non-traditional, often natural treatments.
