Introduction to alternative medicine

The integration of traditional medicine, also known as alternative medicine, is demanded by various groups of people in our societies not as a replacement but more as an accompaniment. Most of us are still quite skeptical about the idea of mixing standard medical procedures with the ancient arts of healing. Yes! There is no doubt that the word ancient is compatible in this sense since there are some methods that can be dated 4000 B.C. first and foremost, I would like to give a quick definition of alternative medicine and how it was used and also mention such types of alternative medicines that’s been in use and still until this day.

So what is alternative medicine?

  Alternative medicine is perceived as a broad term. And that’s because it contains various and all practices that have some healing effect on an individual. Traditions of rare teachings typically support its medical modalities. Such modalities range from acupuncture and Taichi’s ancient Eastern practices to herbal medicine, Reiki, chiropractic manipulation, and more. These services are often used interchangeably with the term “alternative medicine,” a designation created in the 1800s that distinguished these modalities as “alternative” to allopathic medicine ( western medicine).

Common Forms of Alternative Medicine:



-Herbal Medicine

-Body Manipulation



-meditation … etc

I will go through every one of these and give a proper definition and even exercises that can help you in your daily life. If you are interested, be sure to check out the more detailed articles on every one of these practices on our website.

However, people with anxiety disorders often have strong, excessive, and persistent worries about everyday situations. Generally, anxiety disorders consist of repeated episodes of sudden intense anxiety and feelings of fear, which can peak into much intense panic attack episodes. These feelings of anxiety and panic can interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger, and last for a long time. You may avoid some places or situations to prevent these feelings. Symptoms may begin in childhood or adolescence and continue into adulthood.
