The more humans develop, the greater their capability to deal with their problems.
The only upside of this is that as humans get smarter, so it seems does the ailments plaguing us. We have however done our best to stay in control of our lives by developing new ways of treating those ailments that cannot be treated by the conventional methods. The new techniques of treatment are the complementary methods as they work side by side with the conventional medicine to ensure that your body stays in perfect health. But why do people even try complementary medicine when the conventional medicine is there to help them?
We mostly seek conventional medicine after we get sick. Complementary medicine, on the other hand, is often determined to ensure that we do not get sick. Complementary medicine places a huge emphasis on disease prevention to ensure that you remain healthy.
Complementary medicine is often offered to a small number at any given time by any given practitioner. This gives the practitioner enough time to interact with the patient without having the demand of numbers and hours hanging over them. The one-on-one interaction helps the patient to express any issue that may be affecting their healing and thus they are able to be treated well.
Complementary medicine understands that when you are sick, it is not only your body that is in pain. Sometimes you may be going through emotional and spiritual turmoil due to the sickness. When you are using conventional medicine, only the sick parts of you are considered as they are the ones that took you to the hospital in the first place. However, complementary medicine understands that every part of you is a part of the whole, and it treats every part of you as part of the whole.
Most of the times we have to deal with the after effects of our treatment on our own; this is especially hard to surgery and cancer patients. The journey may be hard leaving the patients with unresolved psycho-emotional issues that may affect the rest of their lives. Complementary medicine ensures that your emotional, as well as medical issues, are solved by the end of the regime.
Every patient is seeking a way to get rid of the disease that is affecting them, and complementary medicine offers a way out. But it is important that you do enough research before starting using any complementary medicine to avoid complications.
