WHY ALTERNATIVE, COMPLEMENTARY OR INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE CAN BE OF BENEFIT TO YOU.
Modern medicine focuses largely on targetting direct symptoms of diseases and does typically consider the person as a whole. A lot of the drug prescriptions are automated based on diagnosis and individuality is not always taken into account.
A number of diseases have been linked to lifestyle, including heart disease, diabetes, mental health and autoimmune diseases.
In many cases, drug treatments do not provide enough or lasting efficacy and patients have limited options left. Some people also prefer to avoid taking medicines beause of the side effects.
Healthcare systems are struggling to cope with the increased demand for patient care. Doctors have a very high workload and find it difficult to devote a lot of time to each patient and focus on prescribing treatments and not working with each patient to work with them and help them to understand their condition and encourage them to improve their health with natural means.
