As orthodox medicine contrasts with alternative medicine


Conventional medicine is dominated with a narrow choice; on the other hand is the alternative medicine a marketplace offers a wide and increasing range of choices. But the difference between Orthodox and alternative medicine is clear enough; Orthodox medicine based on scientific study of disease processes (or is working towards this goal), while alternative medical systems have non-scientific approaches, the spiritual, mystical or otherwise intuitive knowledge. But much of orthodox medicine isn't that evidence-based, either.

Conventional medicine

Looking for traditional medicine, fix or repair, and do not support. An invaluable work does Orthodox doctors in their area of expertise, holistic practitioners do. Conventional medicine is well organized, unbelievably well funded, and has full control over the media due to the large amounts of advertising dollars spent by the pharmaceutical industry AKA "Big Pharma".

Conventional medicine is providers have dominated with a narrow; on the other hand is the alternative medicine a marketplace offers a wide and increasing range of choices. Conventional medicine is similar to a very limited but nutritionally balanced diet; Alternative therapies are like an endless pick-and-mix banquet, from which the consumer chooses what they want, try they decide, whether you eat more or try something different. Conventional medicine has developed from its founding principles in a model, which today, is care based on disease. Conventional medicine treats the body (person) in isolated parts, and believes that it power and know an innate (natural) system with interference in his normal homeostasis (whole-body balance) with powerful artificially produced chemicals has to solve. Conventional medicine has never been a model of health.

Alternative medicine

Is very poorly organized, as well as bad alternative medicine, on the other hand pursued strong, incoherent and financed from orthodox medicine. Alternative practitioners can learn homeopathy, Herbalism, Kinesiology, electric diagnostic, chiropractic, osteopathy, aromatherapy, reflexology, body works, Iridology, Cymatics, gemstone therapy, electro magnetic therapy, color therapy, nutritional therapy, naturopathy, acupuncture, stress release, advice etc. Alternative medicine fits very well with some of the dominant attributes of modern society, because it is characterized by the continuous generation of choice and depends on the mass media for the dissemination of information.


The goal of orthodox medicine is simply symptoms of the disease remove a goal more as a prerequisite for optimal health is to achieve, is the Elimination of symptoms in itself even more as a means to identify and correct of the underlying cause of the disease. The direction in the orthodox medicine is, is made. First, when orthodox medicine is to begin to take responsibility for the treatment of lifestyle diseases then must stop his interventionist approach and use the traditional care and supportive approach of holistic medicine.

While orthodox medicine fundamentally supportive nature and its ability is medicine for the treatment of severe trauma and acute or life-threatening diseases, holistic medicine, with its, embracing the importance of the diet, is much more effective, significantly better than when it comes to promoting healing and further prevent disease in the future. It's diagnosis, as well as a high degree of cooperation between alternative medicine in this area particularly where accurate and conventional medicine is highly desirable.
