There are lots of reasons why you might be considering looking for alternate ways to treat medical issues. One in particular springs to mind. Research has shown the alarming likelihood of contracting an illness by going to the doctors or the hospital. You might even find yourself facing a superbug. These hospital born viruses are completely immune to antibiotics and are therefore virtually untreatable. At the same time, it’s worrying to think about just how many antibiotics people take and use. A recent report showed that the average american takes three meds per day. Suddenly it becomes clear why viruses immune to antibiotics are being born. By taking too many antibiotics, we are creating these viruses. We are putting our health in danger using constant medical treatment. That’s why it’s worth thinking about the other types of treatment. Aside from medical drugs that could help. Here are some of the best and most popular treatment methods that you may not have heard of or considered.

It’s easy to think that a problem with health is to do with the body rather than the mind. Particularly, if there are physical symptoms. But it’s important to realise that mental issues can cause physical symptoms to arise. For this reason, you can’t assume a physical condition isn’t being caused by a psychological condition. Weight gain, hair loss, dry skin and other health issues can all be caused by a mental issue. That’s why it is worth thinking about cognitive therapy as a possible alternate treatment. Cognitive therapy allows the patient to work with a psychiatrist. They can then start exploring the route of the pain or even an illness. It can be used to treat severe mental health problems like depression. Cognitive therapy is widely believed to have positive effects on the body as well as the mind. Once the patient understands the issue causing their physical health problems they can handle it. Of course, not all medical issues can be treated using cognitive therapy. But you would be surprised by just how many physical problems have an underlying mental cause.

Acupuncture has risen in popularity lately, because it has been embraced by celeb culture. Many celebrities have been snapped visiting an acupuncture treatment centre. Kim Kardashian in particular loves it as seen over at www.hellomagazine.com/healthandbeauty. Acupuncture has been said to be able to help reduce stress and cases of physical pain. But how exactly does it work? Based on Chinese medicine acupuncture works on the principle that there are pressure points in the body. This is where the stress and tension build up. By placing needles on these points, you can reduce tension. It helps improve the overall health of the patient. The debate often rages on whether acupuncture should be seen as an actual medical treatment. But there are a number of supporters who believe acupuncture therapy works miracles. Be that as it may, it could still be something of a supersized placebo effect. But there is evidence to show that chinese treatments like this do have positive effects on the body.

Natural Herbs

There are quite a few natural herbs and health supplements that are said to work wonders on the body. One example is curcumin, a type of ginger. As explained on www.TheAlternativeDaily.com/curcumin-as-effective-as-drugs/ curcumin has an effect on the body as powerful as any antibiotic. It plays a huge part in Chinese medicine and ancient remedies. Many believe that ginger in boiled coca-cola presents the ultimate flu cure. If you research this idea online, you’ll find plenty of people who swear by this way of treating the common cold. While it’s unclear how a substance as toxic as coke could e good for the human body, curcumin and ginger is a different story.

If you are facing a bad case of the flu, your best bet might well be too by some natural herbs and minerals. A famous case of using herbal remedies to treat illness is Andy Kaufman. Kaufman was a famous and brilliant comedian who rose to fame in the late seventies. After some time, Kaufman developed lung cancer. Allegedly, he travelled the world searching for a cure. Often using herbal remedies to try to prolong his life. Many people believe Kaufman succeeded in curing his cancer and faked his own death. The powerful effects of these natural remedies are still not fully understood. Therefore this notion shouldn’t be too surprising.
