Alternative Medicine Therapies

By on March 3, 2016

Alternative therapy and its awareness among the general public is a growing phenomenon.  It is not only because of the growing number of quality and trusted sources of alternative treatments online, it is also because of the proven effectiveness of such remedies.

According to a recent study conducted at Johns Hopkins University, 1 in 4 Americans have reported using alternative medicine therapies for treating various health issues from pain management to cancer* and everything in between.

Let’s take a look at why more and more people are searching for a health shop online:

Alternatives to Pain Management when no help is available:

In a recent study published in the Journal ‘Pain’, University of Michigan researchers found that older individuals, who are more likely to suffer chronic pain conditions, use alternative therapy more frequently.  Due to its integrated approach, chronic pain management using alternative medicine has become much more than the ‘all or nothing’ approach that is often the only option in conventional medicine.

With no help in modulating their comfort and other factors seniors who do not have access to pain clinics are turning to alternative therapies. A health shop online like can provide you with both detailed, authentic and timely information and products in a single visit.

Lower Cost:

Although alternative medicines have varied roles in curing illnesses, effective and low-cost approaches to prevention will certainly cost you less.   Plus people are more trusting of alternative medicine to avert crisis and aim for prevention instead of hoping for cure.

Over-delivery of medication and costly procedures:
On the flip side of the coin, due to ongoing privatisation of major hospitals, and concentration on cost-effectiveness by traditional health care providers, patients are looking for unbiased opinions.  They want to know, independently, whether their medical problem really needs major medical treatment.  For this reason, people are reaching out more and more towards the natural remedies that apply equally everywhere and at all times.

For a combined approach to healing:

If nothing else, more and more medical professionals are suggesting the use of alternative therapies in combination with conventional medical treatment for a more holistic approach to healing.  For example, the use of camphor and eucalyptus oils for natural pain relief or mango supplements to help lower  blood cholesterol.   Doctors are increasingly in favour of using complementary natural remedies not only to lower dependence on harsh traditional meds but, also to find natural cures that can be made available where traditional medicine may not always be at hand.

To reduce Side Effects:

Very often, effective alternative treatments have fewer side effects or none at all, as compared to the frequent and sometimes extremely unpleasant side effects of many prescription meds and other conventional medical treatments.  The difficulty thus far has been to find a health shop online that you can trust to provide you with the purest organic alternative remedies to help you find alternative and effective cures and prevention. is such a destination to provide you with both high-quality alternative medications and invaluable advice on how to correctly use them.

*Please note that this article is not advocating the refusal of conventional medical treatment for serious illnesses, but merely exploring complementary options in these cases. You should always consult your medical practitioner first if you are, or suspect you may be suffering from a serious condition.
