What are some of the benefits of alternative medicine?

Alternative medicine treatments can have fewer side-effects because medications are not used. Natural remedies and treatments to boost your body’s own healing processes are preferred. Alternative medicine also focuses on your body as a whole organism, not on your individual symptoms.

Do I really need alternative medicine along with traditional medicine?

Traditional medicine focuses on a group of symptoms and the disease itself, not on the patient.

Alternative medicine uses homeopathic and naturopathic therapies to improve your overall health.
