Alternative Medicine

Alternative medicine encompasses any form of medicine or healing that deviates from conventional medical practices. The term includes various medical practices and systems from different parts of the world, and its meaning can vary depending on the region. What may be considered mainstream in one area may be viewed as alternative in another. Some alternative medicine practices have been around for centuries or even millennia, while others are relatively new. Sometimes, an alternative treatment that is proven to be effective and safe can become part of mainstream medicine.
