This Guide presents 48 alternative medicines in detail. How and why they work. An excellent overview for anyone who is interested in different ways of seeing health and well-being.
Alternative medicine includes a variety of healing practices that do not fall within the realm of conventional medicine. Many of these healing systems are based on historical and cultural traditions rather than on scientific empirical evidence.
The focus of this guide is on natural practices that aim to prevent disease or return the body to health with non-invasive methods. Alternative medicines attempt to heal the body as a whole rather than exclusively focus on and treat the symptoms of a disease.
Complementary and integrative medicine refer to the same practices when used in conjunction with mainstream techniques.
