The surging popularity in alternative and complementary therapies reflects a desire for more natural things in life. While the clinical efficacy of these treatments is still being debated, one thing is for sure: There is a difference between ‘alternative therapies’ and ‘complementary therapies’ – the former replaces mainstream medical treatment, while the latter acts as a support. Some are fairly safe and natural, but others can be quite invasive and may worsen your condition. Always check with your doctor or healthcare professional on the safety of opting for these methods.
