Alternative medicine and modern medicine can have differences and to say which is better?  Today we expect doctors and medicines to fix what ails us instantly and doctors only look at the real physical problem in diagnosing our needs.

 

Alternative or holistic medicine, but many factors into consideration before prescribing a cure.  This type of healing has been used for thousands of years and can be very effective.  It solves not only the physical problem, but problems with the “whole” self.

 

Alternative medicine includes massage therapy, herbal, medicinal plants and millions of people still using this type of treatment instead of or in addition to modern medicine.

 

Different cultures have their own specific types of alternative medicine and many types of treatments.  Many of these treatments has survived and is still in force today.  In fact, massage, many swear by the modern world is actually one of the oldest forms of alternative medicine and records of massage therapy dates back to ancient Egypt.

 

In ancient Europe there are two types of healers, doctors and traditional healers.  The healers lived in lower class and heal people in each village who could not afford expensive medicine.  They believe in treating people and work for them.  This type of situation also occurred in many other cultures.

 

In Western culture, philosophy is often used to help the healers in their quest for a holistic treatment.  Philosophy was important because it told the story of his life.  With a touch of philosophy and religion, and understand, easy to find the best treatment available for all he has been sick for the people at the time.

 

We now have a more advanced or immediate medical treatment, alternative medicine, but can still be very effective.  Massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture, herbal medicine, humor, meditation, and many other forms of holistic healing are used every day.  In fact, some of these treatments have become so popular that it is no longer considered alternative medicine and now supported by modern physicians.

 

Although the theory of alternative medicine has been ridiculed throughout the centuries, have survived for a reason – it works.  Alternative treatments do not work as fast as the treatments we have today, but this type of natural treatments are best for you, in general, if you just give them a chance.
