According to recent research, alternative medicine techniques have been a matter of considerable public concern and debate, specially when conventional medicine offers no hope to certain illnesses. In spite of this, it presents some drawbacks.

There are two main areas in which conventional medicine is consistent. It is important to point out that its efficiency is scientifically based and it has a proven effectiveness. Nowadays, it is practised by the vast majority of the people in the world due to the points raised above.

On the other hand, it goes without saying that conventional medicine is expensive and it is said to treat the disease, not the patient. Tha natural doctor or neuropath will usually try to regulate the deeper aspects of life in their patients (for instance their philosophical attitudes, their diet and addictions) before using any remedies, nutricional supplements, herbs or any other technique. There is an important distinction between individual care and personalised care in modern patient care. Conventional medicine has a lot to do with individual care, rather than personalised care, it treats the illness, not the "human being" who has body, soul and spirit. Alternative medicine, today, rallies more and more people.

In addition, both medical concepts, conventional and alternative, have their place and they can harmoniously coexist on a mutually tolerant basis. It would seem that we cannot consider alternative medicine (as well as it practitioners) unimportant, but it is clearly true that scientific researches and studies followed by proven effectiveness and successful results is the best way to treat a patient.

In conclusion, the best thing to do is gather as much information as you can before you make a judgment. Many times people are sceptical or fearful because they do not know the facts.
