ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE

Today's 'alternative' treatments may be tomorrow's mainstream
The Wall Street Journal
Defining "alternative medicine" is the chief pitfall in any discussion of the topic. It is a nebulous term. The National Institutes of Health defines alternative medicine as a "nonmainstream approach [used] in place of conventional medicine" — effectively exiling it to a desert island and emphasizing that it can only be defined by its relation to mainstream medicine. The NIH notes that true alternative medicine is uncommon, because most people combine it with conventional techniques.

Edzard Ernst

Here is just one of virtually thousands of quotes from homeopaths available on the Internet: Homeopathic medicine can reduce Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms by lowering food sensitivities and allergies.
