Will Alternative Medicine Replace Conventional Medicine One Day?

Jun 26, 2008
Nowadays, people are losing confidence on allopathic medicine. It is no longer the panacea people once perceived and been accustomed to. Questions now haunt conventional medical practices as the public's primary concern shifted to protecting their family's lives and their own.

The attention has turned towards alternative medicine - which is gaining reputation in the field of health care. It has become the benchmark as conventional medicine fails to produce satisfactory results.

Television and magazines are being utilized to promote ambiguous medicines that claim to cure or minimize almost every disease known to man. Advertisements show testimonials of satisfied customers who have used a prescribed drug. Others would say these endorsements are skillfully edited.

The magazine ads are just as misleading to the public. Although side effects are mentioned in the ad, it was done without careful scrutiny.

Alternative medicine has gained more popularity in part of these undesirable effects. One example is the effects of the popular hormone replacement therapy Premarin.

* Migraine headache

* Chest pain

* Confusion and memory problems

* Lower extremities swelling

In this stage of life of women, careless decisions may lead to these highly unpleasant experiences. However, with a consultation with an herbalist, a recommended combination of dong quai and black cohosh will prevent the agony.

The general public is conditioned to use traditional allopathic, also known as Western medicine, which concentrates on the ailment and drug prescription. Alternative medicine on the other hand targets the root of discomfort consequently curing the entire body.

People's reactions are often to research on the particular medicine. It only shows the high level of uncertainty to conventional health care. And oftentimes, these side effects lead the public to look for a better and safer approach to good health.

Alternative medicine is becoming one of the mainstream solutions for better health. It is now prescribed by most allopathic doctors to cure sickness and diseases.

The medical profession is beginning to be aware of the positive contributions made to good health by herbs, yoga, acupuncture, massage therapy, and holistic living. As years pass by, alternative medicine is expected to present better and safer approaches to health care.
