There are many different alternative forms of medication that could help you deal with issues such as pain, stress or even physical problems. Many of these are accepted forms of complementary medicine and can often be a great way to supplement whatever treatment or medicine that your doctor has prescribed you.
But can it really help you improve your health, or is it just a placebo effect?
Traditional forms of alternative medicine such as acupuncture and naturopathy are accepted forms of therapy that some physicians may even refer you to. They can be incredibly powerful in soothing stress or dealing with particular health issues. Chinese or oriental medicine is well-known in the world and has slowly been having an impact on the western medical world.
Additionally, there are touch-based alternative forms of medication such as massages, chiropractic and osteopathic medicine, and even yoga. These aim to heal your body by manually manipulating the bones and muscles in your body. Mind-based therapies such as meditation or even hypnosis are also accepted by doctors as viable alternatives.
Lastly, there’s also diets and herbs that can improve your health from within. This can even include the use of supplements such as CBD or hemp oil, which is explained below in a handy infographic. Before using any of these to improve your health, it’s important to speak to your physician to learn more about what it can or can’t do for your body.
