Hello! I think that this subject is very popular now, when we have the choice and a great amount of opportunities for treatment. We see a lot of clinics which offer a high class treatment and at the same time we see a lot of advertisement about untraditional methods, about wonderful results and about a lot of people who use this way of treatment. So let’s analyze every way separately and let’s make some conclusions.
The first way and the most popular one is traditional medicine. It is acceptable by society, by the government and by most of the people in particular. So what are the reasons of such a popularity and respect for traditional medicine?
I think that the first reason are studies. We know how many textbooks and experience exist in traditional medicine. It is based on a very powerful doctrine and qualified specialists which teach other ones. Studies in medicine are at the professional level and students have to learn a lot of material and do a lot of practice for becoming a specialist in this area.
The second reason is control and responsibility of the doctors. As I said before, traditional medicine is accepted by government, so it has the responsibility and the duty to control this system. We know that there are a lot of established standards and laws regarding the process of treatment and medical help.These standards assure the quality of such services and impose a lot og responsibility to the persons who do the treatment. In case of a doctor’s mistake, he will be punished, so this fact instill him to learn the material he need to know and to offer qualified services. There are many control authorities who check the situation in hospitals, pharmacies and of course there are regular examinations for the specialists who activate in such institutions.
The next reason is development and technologies which are widely used in contemporize medicine. Now we have a great supply of different apparatus, computer programs, physical and chemical ways of treatment and of course this moment makes traditional medicine attractive. It is impossible to count how many lives were saves by using antibiotics, chirurgical interventions and many other methods. Such a statistic encourage people to use these methods and technologies because they prove their quality and results. Here we can also give a link to studies, because there are a lot of researches in this area.
Now let’s speak about alternative medicine and what it can give to us and our health. Alternative medicine is a one which is based on customs, traditions and hearsay evidence. Many people say it woks and we can even find it in the process of traditional curing, but it also hides some minuses, so let’s make them visible.
The first minus of such a treatment is its doubtable resources and knowledge. Of course in alternative medicine there are not any official textbooks or university courses. All the knowledge which serves as a theoretical fundament for such a treatment is unverified and unsure. People receive such information from other people who are involved in this process or simply heard something about it. I think that this point is a very dangerous one, because medinice is a very difficult science which needs to be studied deeply and professionally, without any mistakes. It is better to not do something if you are not sure, than to do it and then complain about it. People believe in such techniques, but their beliefs are not always reasonable. We should study a lot about a method if we want to use it, in other way it can be dangerous for our health.
Going further we notice the next minus – right risks. As I said before it is very dangerous to use something we don’t know about when we deal with our health. Our confidence can play a negative part against us. The most dangerous point here is the fact that such kind of medicine is not controlled and there are no any standards for it. There are no any institutions which have the authorization for examining people who offer services of alternative medicine. Without any control people can make an abasement on the problems of ill persons and this process can lead to bad results. Now we reach another important problem in this situation – people’s psychology. When a person is ill and traditional medicine can’t give a clear answer to his or her problem, person lose the hope. He tries to find this hope in alternative medicine and here a lot of offers appear. Of course, maybe one of hundred can be useful, but another can be dangerous.
In the conclusion I can say that we must be very attentive and careful if we decide to use alternative medicine, but in fact I an adept of traditional medicine.

I think both traditional and alternative medicine are needed and I'll tell you why. When you suffer from apathy, stomach illnesses or liver illnesses or something like this, you need regular control, the illness should be treated only by a specialist , not an 'amateur'.
However, when we talk about skin problems (not acute), hair loss, diarrhea :) or something like this, then we can cure ourselves using traditional methods.
Some people create their own storms, then get upset if it rains.

Hi
I think traditional medicine is better than alternative one. It cures your illnesses faster, effectively, and without side effects. However to achieve this you need lots of money and reputable doctors.
With alternative medicine everything is much more difficult. To treat your illness you have to know what to eat, what amount of fruits, vegetables or herbs, you have to be 100% sure that it has no side effects for your health, and you don't have the guarantee that it will cure you.
The choice is up to you - whether listent to doctors or grandmas' recipes.
Stay well!

I go towards alternative medicine in most cases, because it's less harmful for the body and by regular intake you can prevent many diseases. Alternative medicine is ot only about herbs or teas, it's also about normal, everyday food like eating garlic, onions, and other vegetables and fruits. If you are careful what you are eating and the amount of it, do sports and keep your body warm, I mean put on warm clothes when it's cold, the probability that you get sick is 1%.
It's easier to take care of yourself everyday than to cure the illnesses afterwards.
That's why I'm for alternative medicine.
By the way most of medicines can be just placebo. Oh, and you know, when people say that all ilnesses are from the nerves, believe them.
Live your life now.

I definitely stand for alternative medicine.
Alternative medicine is becoming more and more popular, despite the disapproval of the traditional medicine.
And this is obvious because representatives of the official medicine are loosing great amount of money. As many patients are not satisfied with the results of the official treatment. And indeed very often official treatment doesn’t help at all.
Majority of doctors do not bother thyself with reading additional remedies and usually prescribe an antibiotic as the one helpful remade.

I see that there are three main problems of traditional medicine (on my opinion) :

- Doctors' ignorance, lack of desire to improve knowledge
- Unquestioning belief in the power of drugs, distrust unconventional methods
- Corruptions of medical, because they are only interested in selling drugs and greed on our diseases. Such a structure is interested in curing us, because the sources of its profits will decline. Pharmacies will not be so popular.

On the other hand alternative medicine offers us variety of great treatment methods.
And illness can be cured harmless and carefully.

Blink, O my God.
What are you talking about? :woohoo:
Alternative religion is just for gullible young ladies who treat rhinitis.
How can alternative medicine can be better of traditional on?
Do you know the mortality rate before the invention of penicillin? Why did herbs don’t helped that time?
And what is about infant mortality and maternal mortality rate?
It's very nice to praise an alternative knowing that any moment you can be treated by penicillin or surgery can be done.
Plus I've read about situation when people had neglect a cancer treatment, because they hoped to cure it with alternative medicine. And when they woke up it was too late cancer was already in an incurable stage.
Therefore promotion the alternative medicine I find dangerous and even harmful.
