Hello! I started this topic to find out pluses and minuses of alternative medicine looking at it as a hole one.
We know that earlier there were not any doctors, hospitals and tablets. People had to treat themselves with different unusual for us methods. Now we have another situation were our live is maintained by qualified specialists in medicine, who work at different medical institutions and who uses a lot of licensed tables for our treatment. So here we see too different ways to be healthy and the question is what way is right and which one is wrong.
In general I believe in classical medicine and classical therapies. This way of treatment seems to be more certain and less dangerous for me. At the same time I understand the risks and I don’t give all the responsibility for my health on doctors. I also appreciate some method of alternative medicine as massage or other. In fact if we come back in history, we will notice that classical medicine which is popular in our days came from an alternative one. The point is that when we practice alternative medicine, all the responsibility for the results is on us, but in classical one the doctor takes a part of it.

Alternative or traditional medicine is widely used. Very often people prefer to be treated at home, and often they apply to traditional medicines and doctors only in case where self treatment does not help.
For example, it is unlikely the average man will go to the doctor, if he has slight cold. Is this good or is it bad I'm not sure. On the one hand, people often use alternative medicine in cases when these remedies can lead to serious complications or even death. On the other hand, many traditional recipes are really good at helping in various colds, or even in more complex cases.
In any case, each individual's diagnosis and choice of treatment should be carried out individually. Often the remedies that perfectly help one person, completely ineffective for another, as we are all unique, and the effect of drugs often quite difficult to predict.

Hi Sam.

You know, earlier the rate of mortality was huuuge and there weren't mutated viruses like now.
Or, if you have cold, headache or eyestrain - ok, go cure yourself with herbs, but if you have a severe disease and ignore doctors? It's not wise. No way.

Alternative medicine includes different methods of diagnosis and treatment, but the effectiveness of which in treatment of particular disease has not been proven in clinical trials. As every method of medicine this one has its difficult moments, such as the occasional use of statistical methods, the lack of clear criteria for improvement, low duration of observation. Many alternative medicine experts claim that the effectiveness of the methods used in it is basically impossible to measure, because the treatment of each patient is unique. This situation makes it difficult or even eliminates the formation of cohorts for the survey. Despite these disadvantages of alternative medicine, there is one global advantage. It is that the disease is not considered as a illness of one particular organ but as illness of all body. This is what the doctors of Western medicine have lost or forgotten.
