Alternative Medicine

What's the Alternative?

Modern medicine prides itself on a firm commitment to scientific evidence in the assessment of the cause and treatment of disease. It is however an applied science to the deeply personal experience of every individual: this being their own body and health. This may explain why there is no shortage of opinion on how to treat illness by the public at large and specifically by those wishing to practice in alternative health care. Not all of these practitioners subscribe to the scientific method to ascertain medical fact or they may distort the method to give the appearance of scientific rigour.
