The Different Systems of Medicine Exposed!

What’s the deal with all the different systems of medicine? And what’s the difference between “Western medicine” and “conventional medicine?” Here, you’ll find some honest answers

Orthodox medicine” refers to the classic medical training offered through mainstream medical schools. This is a drugs-and-surgery approach to medicine that largely excludes nutrition, wellness, mind-body medicine, patient education, and other natural therapies. It is more effective to deal with trauma based events like accidents or help alleviate pain temporarily. It’s based on the flawed philosophical foundations of Western thinking, which maintains that a body is only a collection of its parts, and that by isolating the parts and studying them separately, you can understand the whole,

“Complementary medicine” means combining conventional therapies with alternative therapies, but the alternative therapies are almost always dismissed from being the primary treatments as they are routinely relegated to supportive roles. For example, complementary medicine’s supporters might say that ginger is great for reducing nausea following chemotherapy, but they would never say ginger or garlic are anticancer herbs in their own right,

“Alternative medicine” or Similarly, the term “quackery” or “quack” is also used by the defenders of conventional medicine to describe anything outside the realm of conventional medicine. If it’s not something they control, own the intellectual rights to, or profit from, the defenders of conventional medicine call it quackery, regardless of its merit as a genuine healing therapy.  Therefore alternative therapy is a somewhat outdated term that refers to everything outside the realm of conventional medicine.

The term alternative medicine will probably fade away as the use of natural healing therapies becomes even more popular with the general public,

“Holistic Medicine” refers to the future of medicine, based on supporting the patient’s health and wellness rather than attacking the patient with various chemicals or procedures like radiation and surgery. Holistic medicine is the first step to the new age of understanding about the true underlying causes of health and wellness. Holistic medicine makes orthodox medicine and Western medicine obsolete, and it includes therapies like phototherapy, sunlight, nutrition, sound therapy, vibrational medicine, electromedicine, mind-body medicine, energy healing, and other similar modalities that were once considered experimental, but are now well-known to be both safe and effective at supporting the health of the patient.
