The world of conventional medicine has opened its door over the past twenty-five years.
At that time it accepts a number of things that would have been unthinkable in 1975.
Those things stand for a radical shift in the role of the medical provider in today’s medical paradigm.
The medical paradigm includes some of the concepts as informed approval, patient directed treatment, involvement of family and patient in decision making and the acceptance that there exist many systems of medicine which may offer treatment and relief.
In recent days most of the doctors accept and believe that you also have a right to choose the therapy that you want to use.
Since the claims and beliefs of conventional medicine have been attacked and upturned and research has often proven that traditional remedies are traditional remedies only.
Most of the doctors will offer information on alternative cure and medical systems along with their own medical advice.
Now a day most of the medical schools are now teaching courses in alternative cure interventions both to future medical students and as continuing med units for practicing doctors.
Large acceptances of alternative cure like massage therapies, herbal medicine, treatments like hypnosis and nutritional supplements has promoted most of the physicians to learn more, if only to discuss the dangers with their patients.
Some of the alternative cures can interfere or enhance conventional treatment. However, not all the alternative cure systems must be used with conventional medicine to be effective. For instance, aromatherapy can be with conventional therapy.
The doctors who know that the herb St. John Wart can change the way of the drugs traditionally used to treat HIV are used by a body which is in condition to advice against it.
With the same signs if a doctor with a patient whose anxiety regarding a necessary treatment may damage the response to the treatment that can be recommend as a relaxation technique before or after the treatment to ease the anxiety.
The main emerging technique in medical circles is a willingness to tie the ancient alternative cure with new medical practices.
So, don’t be surprised if your doctor recommends you to take two aspirins, get plenty of rest, and put some apple potpourri to simmer on the stove to help you relax and get a restful night’s sleep.
Most of the doctors are now using alternative medicine in a complementary manner along with their conventional treatments. A number of medical schools and renowned hospitals are offering cures and clinics using alternative medicine.
