Alternative medicine is commonly used when conventional prescriptions and treatments are not effective. These treatments are low-risk alternatives since they have fewer side effects. Alternative medicine is an integrated healing approach that focuses on the individual on a case-by-case basis.
A few examples of alternative medicine (most of which can be found on our Wellness Services page) include:
When approved by a doctor, alternative medicine can be used to safely complement traditional treatments.
Alternative medicine is a cheaper alternative to most pain treatments. Acupuncture and chiropractic services are considered safe and make a good option for the elderly who suffer from chronic pain.
Alternative medicine can be used to alleviate some of the negative side effects of cancer patients. These treatments can also help reduce some of the negative side effects like nausea and fatigue caused by conventional treatments like chemotherapy.
Alternative medicine is not necessarily cheap, but most of the options available are less expensive than conventional prescriptions and treatments.
Alternative medicines are safe to use under professional guidance. They are natural remedies that result in fewer side effects than conventional treatment options.
Best of all, alternative medicines take a more holistic approach to health. This means that they focus on complete wellbeing, not just physical but also mental.
