Alternative medicine is alternate to the generic medicine and it consists of a wide variety of practices, products, and therapies—ranging from those that are biologically plausible but not well tested, to those with known harmful and toxic effects in some places.
Alternative medicine has grown in popularity and is used by a significant percentage of the population in many countries. While it has extensively renamed itself: from quackery to complementary or integrative medicine—it promotes essentially the same practices. Newer proponents often suggest alternative medicine be used together with functional medical treatment, in a belief that it “complements” (improves the effect of, or mitigates the side effects of) the treatment. However, significant drug interactions caused by alternative therapies may instead negatively influence treatments if not well advised, making them less effective, notably cancer therapy or therapy where surgery ought to be necessary. Despite it being illegal to market alternative therapies for any type of severe diseases, the treatment in most of the developing world are practiced. Naturecure is one of the most accepted alternate medicine and ofter said as grandmother’s medicine (gharelu nuskha).
Alternative therapies are often based on religion, tradition, superstition, belief in supernatural energies, pseudoscience, true-false in reasoning and some hidden propaganda. The concern is that the generic english medicines are also having at-times hidden propaganda but those are hardly perceived by common man and those agendas may help commercial establishments like insurance industry or kings (rulers), the autocratic head, democratic corrupts, for-profit-business houses, actuarials, etc. It is noteworthy to understand that life is to live at its fullest and that requires exchange in one way or other.
I wish good health to all citizens of planet Earth.
