Alternative medicine is "alternative" because it is faith-based, not evidence-based ie, it is anecdotal and placebo. It is always amusing to hear people say they don't want to take "chemicals". Alternative medicine is the popular term for health and wellness therapies that have typically not been part of conventional Western medicine. In recent years, doctors have come to see the value of many of these therapies in promoting physical, mental and spiritual wellness. Alternative medicine is defined as any health practice that takes the place of, or is incompatible with, conventional Western medicine. Distinction must be made between alternative medicine and complementary medicine.

Alternative medicine is distinct from complementary medicine which is meant to accompany, not to replace, standard medical practices. Alternative medical practices are generally not recognized by the medical community as standard or conventional medical approaches. Alternative medicine is also regulated and should be used to treat the more minor ailments which you may suffer from throughout your life. Alternative medicine is based in science and testing, but uses not traditional and typically non-chemical forms of treatment for patients. While somewhat controversial for some people, alternative medicine is a wonderful options for many conditions, symptoms and patients throughout the world.

Alternative medicine is seen as a legitimate other choice or possibility within the treatment scope. A physician will use some of these treatments, such as homeopathy and acupuncture, or refer the patient for further treatment to one of the alternative medicine practitioners, in the same way as they refer patients to other medical specialists. Alternative medicine is any treatment that is not yet, or may never be, mainstream. If it is found to work, it becomes mainstream very rapidly. Alternative medicine is also about empowering the patient to prevent disease, instead of having to rely exclusively on a medical professional. Alternative medicine practitioners believe self-healing to be a natural process of the body.

Alternative medicine is used to replace conventional treatments, so opting for a nutritional therapy for cancer instead of chemotherapy is alternative. Complementary therapies are used alongside conventional treatments. Alternative medicine is a therapy used as an alternative to traditional methods of medicine, not in conjunction with it. Alternative medicine is any treatment that is not yet, or may never be, mainstream. If it is found to work, it becomes mainstream very rapidly.

Acupuncture was found to have "promising results" in controlling postoperative pain and nausea, and to be possibly useful in a range of ailments that includes addiction, stroke rehabilitation, asthma and osteoarthritis. Alternative practitioners maintain many more of their methods are validated by clinical experience, and claim a high rate of successful outcomes. Acupuncture is considered a safe and effective approach and is free from side effects. In fact, patients often claim to feel very relaxed when the treatment is over. Acupuncturists work to relieve obstructions in energy channels that interrupt the flow of energy in the body. Applying needles to the acupuncture points releases chemicals in the nervous system that help to moderate pain and to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities.

Practically speaking, a basic system of how to discover things about the physical world and the laws that govern it has been developed over many years. This is called the scientific method. Practices such as herbs, meditation, massage, and acupuncture seek to aid healing by restoring the yin-yang balance and the flow of qi. It aims to integrate the body, mind, and spirit to prevent and treat disease.
