Definition for : Alternative Health

Plural Form : n/a

Refers specifically, and in the broadest sense possible, to all forms of health care, healing and medicine that do not form part of modalities practiced as traditional Western allopathic medicine.

Modalities typically classified to fall within the boundaries of Alternative Health, include modalities that typically deal in natural and energy based healing.

Examples of mainstream alternative health modalities include :
  • Homeopathy
  • Chiropractic
  • Herbalism
  • Reiki
  • Accupunture / Accupressure
  • Aromatherapy
  • Ayurveda
  • Naturopathy

    Even traditional Chinese medicine is viewed as being alternative.

    One of the main reasons why alternative health modalities have proven as effective, when compared to allopathic medicines, is that these alternative health modalities mainly focus on resolving the source of an illness, rather than simply focussing on simptomatic relief.
