Alternative therapies are bringing hope to the modern computer world. They are growing fast in the US as well as in other countries of the world. They are replacing the conventional medicines which are found to have side effects.

Alternative medicine versus conventional medicine

Alternative medicines have been in practice all over the world before the technological revolution in the western world. Development of technology and science began to revolutionize the medical world only by the end of the nineteenth century. Just like technological methods of finding fast results, conventional medicines based on diagnosis and antibiotics were given in treatments to yield faster results than the tradition alternative medicines. People preferred instant results and opted for conventional medicines rather than ancient alternative therapies which were slow in action. Due to colonization and faster communication ancient medicines were neglected even in countries like China and India.

There were side effects by using conventional medicines as well as the lifestyle of the west. People all over the world were increasingly worried about the harmful side effects of the modern technological treatments. Antibiotics became powerless after using sometime and more powerful antibiotics were to be invented. Cost of treatment was also soring high.

3) Alternative treatments are more natural and go along with nature sine nature is the best and powerful physician. These systems make use of the innate power of the human body which can protect itself by producing anti-infection elements within the body.
