5 Popular And Effective Complementary Medicines That Work!


Five complementary medicines growing in
popularity. In general complementary medicines are health treatments not
standard in Western medical practice. The term encompasses practices spanning diet,
exercise change, prognosis, chiropractic adjustment, and pressure or acupuncture.
The term complementary medicines is used for the treatments that can be used
alongside standard medical practices. These are the five complementary
medicines that are less well-known but growing in popularity.
Number one is Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy uses essential oils. Essential oils are
the concentrated extracts from the roots, leaves, seeds, or blossoms of plants. It is
believed that these oils promote healing. The oils can be inhaled, massaged into
the skin or, in some cases, taken orally. Each oil has a specific purpose. Some are
used to treat inflammation or infections. Others are used to promote relaxation.
Studies suggest aromatherapy helps reduce pain, depression and anxiety. Number two is Balneotherapy Balneotherapy is also known as
hydrotherapy. It involves the use of water for therapeutic purposes and it
dates as far back as 1700 BCE. It’s based on the concept of water benefiting the
skin. It is used to treat a range of conditions from acne to pain, as well as
swelling and anxiety. Practitioners use mud packs, douches, and wraps in attempts
to reap the healing rewards of water. Number three is Homeopathy Homeopathy is
believed to function in a similar way as a vaccine. It is based on the principle
of treating like with like. This means a substance that causes adverse reactions
when taken in large doses, can be used, in very small amounts, to treat the same
symptoms. This concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine as well. For
example Ritalin is a stimulant and is used to treat patients with ADHD.
Homeopaths gather extensive background information on patients before
prescribing a highly diluted substance. This is usually given in liquid or
tablet form. It is said to jump start the body’s natural systems of healing. There
is clinical evidence that homeopathy is effective, however more research is
needed to determine each of the treatments effectiveness. Number four is Naturopathy Naturopathic medicine is based on the healing power
of nature. Naturopathic doctors are trained in both conventional and
alternative medicines. They seek to understand the cause of a condition by
exploring its mental, physical, and spiritual manifestations in a patient.
Naturopathy typically involves a variety of treatment techniques including
nutrition, behavioral changes, herbal medicine, homeopathy and acupuncture. Number five is Reiki Energy Healing Reiki is a form of energy healing. It is
based on the idea that a Universal Life Force flows through our body. According
to this philosophy sickness and stress are indications that our life force
energy is low. Similarly high levels of energy, good health, and happiness
signifies a strong life force. In a Reiki session the practitioner acts as a
conduit for the universal life force. This energy is drawn through the
practitioner and into the client. They do this by the placement of their hands on
the clients body, (or a slight distance away) Reiki can also be performed long
distance. The purpose of Reiki is to promote relaxation, speed up the healing
process, reduce pain and generally improve the clients well-being
