Alternative Medicine

Alternative medicines is a whole field of treatment for diseases developed outside conventional, standard, scientific, ‘western’ medicine. Some kinds of alternative medicine, like ayurveda, are traditional systems of medicine practiced by certain people before ‘modern’ medicine became available. Others, like aromatherapy, are more recent developments. Treatments for diseases are not as rigorously tested in alternative medicine, and there is a wide range of effectiveness: some alternative treatments work when regular ‘western’ medicine fails, but others are ineffective and may cause harm.

Reflexology

Reflexologists believe that manipulating the foot (and sometimes the hands and ears) creates a ‘reflex’ in other organs, and this property can be used to heal many diseases. For example, the manipulation of the big toe can affect the head and brain. Reflexology is dismissed as quackery by medical doctors, though like many other fields of alternative medicine it continues to have many fervent believers.

Join our online group on reflexology, whether you believe it or not, and you can discuss it with its proponents and others who are interested in it.

Reiki
