Holistic and Alternative Medicine Treatments

Holistic and Alternative medicine concerns itself with finding the cause of a disease and treating it from the root rather than treating the symptoms. Alternative treatments will look at a person's entire being includes mental state, diet, exercise, attitude, etc. Along with treating a person's body they also treat his mind and put him in touch with his spiritual side.

There are many forms of alternative medicines. Some famous ones are Yoga, Ayurveda, herbalism, massage therapy, reflexology, homeopathy, aromatherapy and meditation.

Some techniques such as Thai massage, Yoga, Ayurveda and acupressure have been exported outside their home countries of origins and have found a willing audience outside. Others like energy healing, herbalism, aromatherapy, and meditation existed in some form before they became popular.

Alternative therapy can be used to de-stress and detoxify the body and get back youthful vigor. Natural remedies are easy on the body and make use of the system's own internal energy to heal from injuries or recover one's health.
