The alternative medicine had been used since very old ages and is still being used now a day. It’s very common for people to use it, because alternative methods are a significant and important support to healing.
People seek out alternatives because they are dissatisfied in some way with conventional treatment; they see alternative treatments as offering more personal autonomy and control over health care decisions; and the alternatives are seen as more compatible with the patients’ values, worldview, or beliefs regarding the nature and meaning of health and illness.
In some places the alternative medicine had become very popular like on the UK.
Complementary medicine is growing in popularity all the time, and is becoming a significant part of modern-day healthcare, with millions of treatments taking place each year. It reaches back into the distant past, drawing on health wisdom from ancient cultures such as the Greeks, Egyptians, and Chinese, and yet is also bang up-to-date with new health innovations and the latest technological advances.
Gradually, acceptance of complementary medicine is increasing in orthodox medical circles with more and more doctors training in, or referring patients for, complementary therapies or incorporating complementary practitioners into their practices. You can find complementary medicine in hospitals, specialist clinics, hospices, schools, beauty clinics, and gyms.
