page speaks about the term
little hard to define, "alternative medicine"...
but what do they have in common, if anything
a tendency towards "holistic"? wishfully...
they often seek
to remove blocks to health (rather than block some bodily function)
but there are exception to this...
So what would
I claim for Alternative Medicines?
~ Chiropractic is the "turn to" technique for spinal pain or discomfort - and rib pain (one of the most common chest pains) - and may also help in all sorts of conditions
~ Acupuncture, again can be useful for almost anything. I've found it particularly effective with insomnia, allergies, asthma, nasal and/or sinus congestion (to name just a few...)
~ Herbs. Western herbalogy can be a safe, mild and effective treatment for all sorts of stuff (though not particularly for headaches or musculoskeletal complaints (thank God for chiropractic)
~ Homeopathy. If you don't get the "right" remedy virtually nothing happens, but with right remedy... amazing. Do you know about Arnica? (have i written about it?)
~ CranioSacral Therapy: "the membranes edge between body, mind and spirit" ...
Take a look at my Alternative Medicine page
Oh... they used to talk of Homeopathy and Allopathy. Homeopathy is treating with "like". Allopathy is treating with "other"
