In theory alternative medicine is a form that does not fit well with the western medicine framework once a form of medicine that has been well proven to be scientifically effective and a theory was able to show and explain the language of the western medicine why it has been said to be effective.
But then after the theory comes politics, in reality US alternative is a form of medicine that has not been accepted as a valid reason with the American Medical Association and US government in other countries different official bodies will have to choose the real meaning behind it is like the alternative medicine. In Canada is was considered as the conventional medicine that is highly regulated.
Would you even consider to believe that the US government the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine vitamins are completely have not been proven to have a positive effect on the body.
There are theoretical uses of vitamins that are not even proven yet but that doesn’t mean that what has not been proven can be less effective since it has not been considered to be scientifically right.
At the same time just because someone claimed that those alternative medicine is effective makes them a liar, supplements are not regulated at the same time that not all manufacturers are telling the exact truth whether the ingredients it contains are true or not.
If you are interested in using an alternative medicine for a specific problem or just simply to be able to improve you health it is still best that you should do research and find the best company that can give that kind of medicine to you.
Then you may find a person that is really good with alternative medicine and that most forms of alternative medicine are not licensed in the US so ask where they went to school and how long have they been practicing it.
