Pros and cons of alternative medicine

Alternative medicine can help with a mass of various diseases, but before you make a choice in its direction, you need to familiarize yourself with all its advantages and disadvantages. Although alternative medicine is aimed at improving not only physical, but also emotional and mental state, its methods still raise some questions that remain unanswered.

Non-standard or alternative methods of medicine usually include dietary supplements, herbs, special diets, homeopathic remedies, energy effects or magic, that is, everything that is not recognized by either medical or scientific communities. Such methods cannot be approved by regulatory authorities, as they are not confirmed by clinical studies. Continue reading
