Alternative Medicine Acceptance On The Increase
The use of alternative medicine is increasing and in Australia it has become an integral part of our healthcare. With our multi-cultural society alternative medicine has become more acceptable to many Australians. Practitioners of alternative remedies often learn homeopathy, kinesiology, chiropractics, reflexology, body works, osteopathy, aromatherapy, iridology, electro-magnet therapy, nutritional therapy, naturopathy and acupuncture.
Alternative medicine believes that our bodies have the innate powers to do the healing. It requires the patient willing to take make some life style changes over long period. This is important to help with the prevention and treatment of the ailment. If it is only a cover up for life long symptoms then alternative medicine is no better than conventional medicine.
