Alternative medicine encompasses all “therapeutic” approaches that are different from conventional medicine. It is based on the use of natural means to prevent or relieve various health problems.
Alternative medicine can improve various problems such as headaches, stomach aches, burn out, stress, anxiety, depression, allergies, diet and much more.
How to be accompanied by a therapist or a consultant ?
In order to receive complementary medicine, it is necessary to choose a solution to your problem. Indeed, as with conventional medicine, each therapist or consultant is specialized. If you have joint problems for example, manipulative and body-based practices will help you.
They focus primarily on the structures and systems of the body such as bones, joints and soft tissues. These practices, offered by osteopaths and energeticians, are based on the belief that the body can regulate and heal itself and that its parts are interdependent.
The success of alternative medicine
Alternative medicine is successful and continues to progress, however, we must not forget that these are complementary therapeutic approaches. It is therefore necessary to be careful with the professionals you choose.
In particular with the scandal that the platform Doctolib has known, accusing the Naturopath Irene Grosjean, of sexual touching in order to lower the fever of the babies, at the beginning of the affair, the online platform had decided to suspend only the accounts of the naturopaths claiming their training by Irene Grosjean. Following the bad buzz, they finally decided, a few weeks ago, to delete all the accounts of professionals offering complementary medicine.
However, you should know that there are other platforms that put alternative medicine practitioners in contact with individuals. In particular, there is the online platform Médoucine, which allows you to book an appointment online with a certified and validated alternative medicine therapist. The platform also publishes articles and advice sheets to help patients and clients to be at the top of their health in a natural way.
The importance of learning about complementary medicine
Moreover, it is important to know that 74% of French people have already consulted an alternative medicine practitioner or have the intention to do so according to a study by Médoucine.
The choice of a practitioner in alternative medicine is made according to your needs and your problem. Indeed, having your feet on the ground to make the right choice is essential. Whether it is to be accompanied in osteopathy, acupuncture or any other method, you must be sure that it is made for you. Being open-minded about the traditions of the world and traditional medicine will help you to be better accompanied.
To better understand your body, for example, mind-body therapies may be right for you. If you are more a fan of letting go or a dreamer, hypnosis can be assimilated with you. Finally, to regain full power over your body, nutrition, micronutrition or therapeutic food could help you.
Alternative medicine and conventional medicine are not incompatible. As a proof, some professionals manage to make their entrance in medical offices, but also in hospitals, such as acupuncture, medical hypnosis, nutrition or sophrology.
Some doctors even train in hypnosis to facilitate anesthesia for example.
Not all alternative medicines are recognized by the French state, only four are classified: homeopathy, osteopathy, acupuncture and mesotherapy.
However, you should know that in Eastern countries, especially in Asia, Africa and South America, these practices are more widespread and adopted for the well-being of all. The important thing is to feel better every day.
