Alternative Medicine (15)
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.
